  1. Hello Dassana,
    Can we double/ triple this recipe?

    • yes madhavi you can double or triple.

  2. Is there any substitute for condensed milk ?

    • Pranjal, you can use evaporated milk, if you can get it.

  3. Hi dassana
    Can i melt the chocolate in microwave ??

    • nikki, you can melt chocolate in the microwave.

  4. I tried the recipe but then oil got separated and chocolate didn’t melted properly help me

    • the chocolate has to melt properly. the stirring has to be often so that all the chocolate melts. what you can do is form balls from the chocolate mixtur and coat the balls in desiccated coconut or cocoa powder or chopped dry fruits or powdered sugar. also i have used butter. oil is not used in the recipe.

  5. I dont hav butter paper nor aluminium foil wt can i do…plzzz help

    • just grease a pan or tray very well with some butter and then use it.

  6. hi dassana,
    tried the chocolate ice cream. turned out amazing!!!!!!! thank you so much for your suggestions. now i want to try the chocolate fudge. but i have hershey’s cocoa powder and a very small amount of condensed milk( left from my ice cream preparation 🙂 ) for the above give measurements of items how much cocoa powder should i use? in my case as i will be adding both sugar and condensed milk, should i i first add the sugar,melt it then add condensed milk and cocoa powder ?

    • welcome radhika. with cocoa powder, the method is different. you need to cook the cocoa powder, sugar, butter/ghee and milk/condensed milk till you get a barfi like consistency. it can also be like a halwa consistency. first heat ghee (2 to 3 tbsp), keep flame to a low. add cocoa powder. stir and then add milk/condensed milk. if using condensed milk you won’t need to add sugar. you can 1 to 2 tbsp if the sweetness is less. then stir non stop till the mixture starts leaving sides of pan. pour in a bowl or tray and let it set. you can even use half-half of milk and condensed milk. but here you will need to add some sugar as milk will dilute the sweetness of condensed milk. you can add 2 to 3 tbsp cocoa powder or more. hope this helps.

  7. Hi dassana. I would like to know which brand of choclate i should use for white choclate.

    • anita, you can use callebaut brand. i have used it and it is good. also use any good brand but avoid morde chocolates. basically avoid compound chocolate and use couverture chocolate.
