Nutella Barfi/Fudge

When it comes to any kind of chocolate spread or Nutella, I've never been that enthusiastic.  I just couldn't understand how the world has gone nuts for Nutella, until I brought one tiny little jar in my kitchen, only after I started my food blogging. Almost on every food blogging site, bloggers were talking about Nutella , and Nutella recipes were gaining huge popularity.

I felt bad, thought I am the only odd one out, having four generations in our family in the UK but We never spoken that word in the house and never got tempted by Nutella or any chocolate spread as I am not a chocolate fan myself. However I thought since it is " cool " to try to seem an "international mindset", I jump into this popularity bandwagon and tried Nutella first time just four years ago and created couple of Nutella recipes, Homemade Ferrero Rocher , and Vanilla Doodh Poha with Nutella Panna Cotta.

Okay, I've got to admit that Nutella is downright delicious and tastes great, it is addictive but still I have not fallen in that trap, Nutella jar is not a regular item in my kitchen and rarely use in some recipes, quite to the contrary father and daughter duo consume every devilish spoonful from the jar every time, and I know they won't be giving up this treat anytime soon  !

I may not enjoy Nutella directly on my toast or pancake, but Nutella Barfee is a whole different ball game. I love it when it has a whole new dimension, eastern flavour with a richness almost to die for. I made this Barfi, almost a year ago for a small celebration in the family, which I knew I have to post a recipe on here, because it's just so damn moreish and received so many positive compliments.

My craziness for Indian sweets or any kind of Barfee has no boundaries, wake me up middle of the night and offer me a piece of any Indian sweet, you won't hear "No" from me that's my promise. Bring me Indian sweets on my birthday, I won't ask for any kind of cake. Although, I prefer classic sweets or mithai should be left alone with their own original recipe, sometimes I can not help and do meddle with it and give it my own touch or try to make that recipe fusion :)

Nutella Barfee came about as I was experimenting something new with the original recipe to bring about a twist with a western touch and there was success in every bite ! It was divine, delicate and silky smooth.

These barfee can be served either on religious gathering or other celebrations, I bet your family and guests will really appreciate your efforts for trying something new. These Nutella Barfee can be given as a edible gifts or why not make a special treat for Valentines Day !!

You will need :-

  • 550 g full fat milk powder 
  • 2 tbsp melted ghee or unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp. cream or full fat milk
  • 1 can of condensed milk (397g)
  • 200 g Nutella jar
  • 100 ml single or double cream
  • 100 g roasted and finely chopped hazelnuts 
Method :-
Place milk powder in a one big bowl, add melted ghee and 2 tbsp. cream.
Mix the mixture with a fork and leave it for 5 minutes. ( we call it DHABO DEVO )
Take heavy based pan or kadai and start roasting the milk powder mixture on a very very low heat.
Keep stirring continuously and make sure milk powder does not stick to pan or get brown.
Roast the powder for 10-12 minutes till raw smell goes away.
Meanwhile in another pan gently heat the Nutella, condensed milk and cream together.
Pour over roasted milk powder mixture and quickly mix the mixture.
Add roasted hazelnuts ( reserve 2 tbsp ) and mix once again.
Turn the heat off.
Pour barfee mixture in to greased tray or thali and level it out with spoon.
Let it set and cut them into desired shape.
Enjoy !
