Chocolate Peda - Easy diwali sweet recipe

Only three ingredients are required to make this easy chocolate peda – Khoya, Cocoa powder and sugar.

And it takes only 15 minutes to make this gorgeous looking sweet.

I love chocolate flavor so much that I have incorporated this flavor in other Indian sweets such as Chocolate modak, Chocolate pistachio rolls, Chocolate burfi

These peda has rich chocolate flavor with perfect amount of sweetness. If you are chocolate lover, I am sure you will love this. Color and taste always depends on the type and quality of cocoa powder you are using.

Here I have used Instant homemade khoya. You can use store bought or make it at home with traditional method.
