In India, sweets are traditionally given as gifts and shared with loved ones whenever you visit (like we have tea and cake, really), and symbolise the happiness of the relationship. These sweets look amazing but they are incredibly sweet and generally this is too much for the English palette.
So this recipe for choccy barfi or burfee is a bit of a hybrid - Indian fudge with the warming chocolate flavour and much less sugar. Definitely one for the children this and it will get them cooking, I promise!
You can also put this into a piping bag and pipe some love shapes. Just remember you have to work quickly as it becomes hard to pipe as the mixture starts to cool down and because it's hot you will need to cover the bag with a tea towel as you pipe (safety first and all that).
Burfee makes a lovely alternative to a biscuit with a cup of tea. My children love these both to eat but also to make.
