Ingredients

Instructions

  • Heat a pan on medium flame and add ghee to it. Add the condensed milk and let it heat for 2 minutes.
  • Add almond flour and mix with the condensed milk.
  • Add cocoa powder and mix well. Let it cook for 2-3 minutes while stirring continuously. The mixture should be thick such that you can roll in your hands.
  • Take the pan off the flame and let the mixture cool for 3-4 minutes. We want the mixture to be warm at a temperature you can take in your hand.
  • Grease your hands with ghee or oil. Take a small amount of mixture in your hands and roll it like a ball using both hands. Press the ball to make the flattened coin shape. Press 2-3 sliced almond on top to garnish.  
  • Keep them at room temperature for about an hour and enjoy!

Notes

  • Store these bites in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. If you are storing them in the refrigerator, then remove them 30 mins before serving.
  • If you don't have Almond flour, grind almonds to make a fine powder.¬†
