Sweets have never been my area of interest to experiment with and when it comes to Indian sweets more so as lots of preparations and patience goes into making them and not to mention the tickling calorie bomb they are with few exceptions like shree khand and kheer etc which are relatively easy to master and less guilt involved.
Me being a lazy cook, I want my food to be ready quickly, but this holi when I needed to serve some sweets I really wanted something special to serve to my friends. Hubs has a major sweet tooth and he suggested something Indian. When he asked Indian than there is nothing more convenient than this instant coconut burfee or fudge. Whenever I have to make quick something this fudge is my go to thing.
Ready in less than 10 minutes most of the ingredients are commonly available at hand, it is so simple, just perfect in texture ,soft, chewy and enough graininess of coconut provides it right consistency and sweetness.
I made two shapes, half of the cooked mixture flattened and cut into square/rectangles and half of it divided into small round truffles filled with nuts and soft whipped cream, both came out beautifully but I wish there could be some magic to take away those tiny creatures known as calories out of it
