For the third day of bite sized foods for Kid’s Delight, here is one more nutella recipe. My daughter is a huge fan of nutella and when I read so many bad reviews about nutella, I decided to make it at home. As we don’t get hazel nuts easily, I used peanuts and almonds to make my homemade nutella and it was such a huge hit with my daughter. I have been using nutella in many recipes apart from using it as a spread. And this home made spread keeps good even for two months at room temperature.
I am having a tough time staying away from Paneer based sweets after the month long Indian Milk Sweets Marathon (click for recipes). After the Nutella cheese cake cups, here is one more recipe which uses nutella and paneer. I decided to make a fusion sweet using malai paneer and nutella. I added a little condensed milk to the sweet for some extra sweetness. But if you like it mild, then skip adding condensed milk. Usually sandesh is tough to get right. Over cooking might result in grainy sandesh, but this one is easier. As there is chocolate from nutella, it doesn’t dry out easily and makes a really flavourful sandesh. My daughter and her friends loved them so much.
Makes 9 Sandesh
Malai Paneer – 100 gm
Nutella – 50 gm
Sweetened Condensed Milk – 1 tbs
Vanilla Essence – 1 tsp
Milk – 2 tbs
Pistachios and Nutella For Garnish
In a pan take paneer, nutella, condensed milk, milk and vanilla.
Using a spatula mash them up well.
Heat on low flame and you can see that the chocolate in nutella will melt and the mixture will become slightly thin.
Keep on cooking until the mix starts leaving sides.
Remove from flame and allow to cool completely.
With the help of a spoon, take small portions and shape into balls.
Place them on plate and refrigerate until it is easier to handle.
Shape them into pedas and make a small impression in the centre.
Add some nutella inside and top with pisatchios.
Refrigerate until serving.
Use my Soft Malai Paneer to make this Sandesh
This is my Homemade Nutella Recipe. It is so easy to make and is so good.
