How To Make Chocolate From Scratch|Homemade Milk Chocolate

What type of chocolate is this?  
     In this post I describe how to make milk chocolate using regular butter and cocoa powder.I used milk powder too to make it a milk chocolate. I used brown sugar so the chocolate tasted and looked like caramel. You can use regular sugar instead. Mine set after two days just when I thought I failed in my attempt to prepare chocolate. I made chocolate tofu pie using the chocolate. Reduce the water that goes in here to make it set early.You can also try grinding the dry milk to fine powder and follow this same procedure. I used carnation non-fat dairy milk powder.
 How to be careful, if it fails how to fix?
  Getting the single thread consistency of the sugar syrup is very important. Make sure you grease the plate for molding completely before adding the chocolate mixture. If you get runny chocolate don't panic make it set in refrigerator for few more hours or days.
Other methods of making chocolates :
     Some people use cocoa butter instead of regular butter for preparing chocolate(Cocoa butter is a butter made with cocoa beans). Chocolate can be prepared by grinding the cocoa beans too. But this seems to be bit long and complicated process.You can use cocoa powder only to prepare regular chocolate.You can also use milkmaid but the chocolate won't hold its shape(just roll them and dip in nuts and set in refrigerator).So my preference is this simple milk chocolate recipe.

How to do variation in this milk chocolate recipe?
  • Add chopped nuts like cashews, badam/almonds
  • Add cardamom powder.
  • Add cinnamon powder.
  • Add nutmeg powder.
