1 Cup Grated Jaggery (see notes)
1 Cup Grated Dark Chocolate
1 Cup Skinless Peanuts
1 tsp Cinnamon (optional)
2 tbsp Butter + some for greasing the tray

  • Grease a Square tray with butter and keep it ready. 
  • Take the Skinless Peanuts, in a Microwave Safe Pan, add half tsp of butter and Cook it @ Microwave high for 2 minutes. This is to Roast the peanuts. Take it out and let it cool.
  • Once Cooled, grind it coarsely. Take care not to powder it, we want it to be coarse. you can even pound it using a Pestle only.
  • Heat a Shallow pan with 2 Cups of Water. When the water starts boiling, reduce the flame (Double-Boiler Method)
  • Take the Grated jaggery and butter in a heat-proof bowl and place it over the Simmering Water and let the jaggery melt.
  • Keep Stirring while it melts, it will take about 8-10 minutes, depending on how fine the jaggery is grated.
  • Once the Jaggery melts, add the coarsely pounded peanuts and give it a good mix. When the Peanuts are completely coated with jaggery, add the grated dark chocolate and cinnamon to it and mix well to coat.
  • Take it off the stove, transfer the mixture into the greased pan, smoothen the top using a Spatula or a parchment paper.
  • Let it cool in the room temperature for 10 minutes. Using a knife make light markings on top for cutting, Refrigerate for atleast 2 hours for it to set. 
  • While serving take it, use a sharp knife break it along the marked lines and Gobble!!! 
  • Once taken out, the chocolate will start melting, so make sure to store in the fridge.

  • If the jaggery variety you are using is bit dark and more sweet than the regular ones, then reduce the quantity to 3/4 Cup.
