Make some Chocolate at home this Chocolate Day

13th of September is Chocolate Day. We celebrate the food that has bought a smile to millions of people around the world! Everyone loves a good bar of chocolate. Even if it has melted, which is usually the case in our beloved Indian climate, the basic essence and taste of it attracts people from far and wide!

When you can buy so much of chocolate, why not try making some at home? It is not difficult, and requires some very basic skills! And of course, some greater bakeware, and cookware from UrbanDazzle.

Basically, chocolate is made out of the Cocoa Plant. Since you might be a first timer, it would be prudent to make chocolate, not from the seeds, but from Cocoa Powder, which is readily available in the market today.


The ingredients that you would need are:-


  • 2 cups, or approximately 220 gms of cocoa powder strategy.
  • ¾ cups or around 170 gms, of butter, that has been softened to room temperature.
  • ½ cup, or approximately 100 gms of sugar.
  • 150 ml of milk, at room temperature.
  • 30 gms, or ¼ th cup of powdered sugar.
  • 1 cup or about 235 ml of water.
Making chocolate


  1. Heat the water in a dish, until it is just short of boiling. Do not allow it to reach boiling point, but keep it moderately warm.
  2. Mix in the cocoa powder, and add some butter, and keep stirring and mixing.
  3. You could also use an egg beater in order to eliminate any sort of lumps that might form.
  4. Subsequently again, mix this mixture that you have, of the powder and butter, into the water. Keep in mind, that you can allow the temperature of the water to rise, but do not allow it to boil.
  5. Once again, stir till all lumps and irregularities are eliminated.
  6. Sift the powdered sugar/sugar, into a separate dish, and remove as many clumps as you can.
  7. Stir the sugar mixture that you have prepared in the hot cocoa mix.
  8. Add some milk, and then, blend, until this is smooth.
  9. Stir this mixture again, so as to make sure that all ingredients are uniformly distributed throughout the entire dish.
  10. Now, pour this molten chocolate, into moulds, and keep in the refrigerator, overnight, so as to harden.

Next day, start eating the fruits of your own labour!
