Chocolate desserts have a soft corner in many people's hearts. However, some are under the impression that making them is a tedious task, avoiding it altogether. But here are two easy to make desserts that one can make with spare chocolates at home. These have been shared by Ravish Mishra, Executive Chef, The Westin Goa and Ranjan Alu, Food and Beverages Manager, Le Meridien Hyderabad.

Chocolate Macaroons By Ravish Mishra, Executive Chef, The Westin Goa  

  • Prep Time: 20 Minutes 
  • Cook Time: 25 Minutes 
  • Total Time: 45 Minutes 


  • 4 ounces chopped semi-sweet chocolate 
  • 1 14-oz bag sweetened flaked coconut 
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract and salt 
  • 6 cup sweetened condensed milk 
  • 2 eggs whites 


  1. Preheat the oven and set two racks near its centre. Align two baking layers with parchment paper. 
  2. In a bowl, combine sugared condensed milk, vanilla extract and coconut. Now set it aside. 
  3. With an electric mixer, mix the salt and egg whites until they form stiff. Then, use a big spatula (of rubber) to wrap the coconut mixture into the egg whites. 
  4. Use two spoons or one mini ice cream scoop to mound the mixture's tablespoons into heaps, aligning 1 inch apart on the instant baking layers. Bake for 20-25 minutes while turning the pans from bottom to top and back to front until the edges and tops are golden.  
  5. Let it cool on the vessels for a few seconds, then shift to wireframe to cool thoroughly. 
  6. Soak the macaroon's base in the chocolate, allowing any extra drip back to the pan, and turn to the rimmed baking layers. Put macaroons in the fridge for 10 minutes and leave the chocolate to set.

Tip: The macaroons store well in a sealed box at room temperature for about one week. 

Snickers Milkshake By Ranjan Alu, Food And Beverages Manager, Le Meridien Hyderabad


  • Milk – 100ml 
  • Vanilla Ice cream – 2 scoop 
  • Chocolate syrup – 60ml 
  • Chocolate – 30gm 
  • Chocolate wafer or snicker – 3 sticks 
  • Chocolate bar – 1 
  • Biscuit, choco chips, nutties or berry chocolate to garnish


  • Gather the ingredients. 
  • Combine every ingredient, milk, ice cream, chocolate syrup and chips into the blender. Be mindful while the blending process. The ice cream should be harder; otherwise, it will liquefy and make the milkshake too thin.
