Since the chocolates are not made in sugar syrup , you will not get hard chocolates. But the gooey chocolates will be very soft and they just melt in mouth.
Instead of coconut , you can roll them in nuts powder too.
Entire process should be done in low flame.
As ragi will stick to bottom so easily , keep stirring continuously.

  1. Tried this recipe.. followed the same measurements.. looks like cocoa powder should be little less than what is mentioned.. mine turned out little bitter than expected .

  2. Followed same except adding extra organic coconut sugar for sweetness since I feel it was little low after adding dates..came out very well and my kids loved it..thanks for the healthy recipe..
