If you and your siblings are true foodies, you have probably already started thinking about the menu for the Rakhi celebration.

You can pick simple, quick meals to prepare; even better, if they contain chocolate, a flavour that both of you will undoubtedly adore. So, below is a list of 5 simple chocolate treats you may create for or with your siblings. With these delicious indulgent treats, you can make the celebrations even more unforgettable. 

Chocolate Marzipan 

This quick recipe for gooey, rich chocolate marzipans, which take only around 10 minutes to prepare, is the ideal way to start your rakhi celebrations. Here is the complete recipe. 

Ingredients:  

1 ½ cup almonds 

½ cup powdered sugar 

2 tbsp coco powder 

2 tbsp light corn syrup 

2 tbsp vanilla extra/rose extract/almond extract 

2 tbsp water 

Method:  

The almond should be processed into a grittier powder. Add cocoa powder and powdered sugar to this and continue grinding until very fine. The only thing left to do is use a liquid to bind the prepared almond meal together. Add a few drops of vanilla essence, water, and light corn syrup. Do not knead this dough for longer than 30 to 60 seconds. Once a smooth, round dough has been created, wrap it in plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator for 40 to 60 minutes. Take the chocolate marzipan out of the refrigerator, roll it into little balls between your palms, and serve. 

Chocolate Banana Pops 

Enjoy cooking this fascinating recipe with your siblings, and feel free to use apples or strawberries instead of bananas. Each bite gets exactly the right amount of flavour boost from the crunchy nuts on the surface. 

Ingredients: 

4 Banana (small and firm) 

½ cup milk chocolate 

¼ cup fresh cream 

1 tbsp honey 

1 tbsp cold pressed virgin coconut oil 

2 tbsp groundnut (crushed), roasted 

4 Wooden Ice cream sticks 

Method:  

Using a double boiler, melt the cream and chocolate over simmering water, stirring constantly. Make sure the water doesn't touch the pan's bottom. When the sauce has reached a smooth and silky consistency, add honey and cold-pressed virgin coconut oil and stir thoroughly. In a big glass, pour it. After peeling it, put a wooden craft into each banana. Lay them on a tray, wrap it in plastic wrap, and place it in the freezer for 3 hours or until frozen. Stack the dish with crushed peanuts. Before rolling them in the peanuts, dip each frozen banana into the chocolate sauce, making sure the entire fruit is covered. Place on a tray that has been lined with wax paper. After an hour or two in the refrigerator, serve. 

Chocolate Hearts 

These chocolate hearts are the ultimate classic chocolate dessert. Mix in the cocoa powder, honey, vanilla essence, virgin coconut oil, and pour the mixture into the mould. The chocolate hearts are ready after a short period of freezing. 

Ingredients:  

500 g dark chocolate 

Half a stick of salted butter 

100 ml of thick cream  

2 tbsp light corn syrup 

Salt 

½ tsp bourbon  

Method:  

Melt butter and chocolate in a bowl, taking care not to overheat or burn it. The heavy cream, corn syrup, and salt should all be boiling in a separate pot. Pour on top of the chocolate mixture, then wait for two minutes. Add bourbon to taste after stirring until well combined. Mixture should be chilled for at least an overnight period to set before being scooped and formed into tiny truffle-sized balls. Truffles should be chilled for an hour before coating.
