Walnut Drops

Walnut Drops

This recipe was thought to my mother forty years ago, when she was in her 10th grade by her teacher. She never really made these sweets until much later on in her life, now its an every year Christmas Special that sells and goes down like hotcakes.

Walnut Drops are relatively easy to make with a few common ingredients, but it would require some patience.

Ingredients:

1 Tin Condensed Milk
1 Cup Fresh Milk
1 ½ Cup Sugar
½ to 1 Cup Walnuts
2 Table spoons Cocoa Powder
1 Table Spoon Butter
A Cap full of Vanilla Essence

Procedure:

Put the fresh milk on the fire and let it boil till half.

Fresh Milk

Add the sugar and stir occasionally till it dissolves.

Add Sugar to Milk

Once all the sugar has dissolved add the condensed milk.

Nestle Condensed Milk Tin

Pouring Condensed Milk
Stir continuously till you find the mixture nice and thick.
Mother Stirring her Magic

Add the cocoa powder to the mixture and stir till its mixed evenly.

Cocoa Powder

Add Cocoa to the Mixture

After its evenly mixeed you can add the walnuts.

Shelled Walnuts

Drop the Walnuts in the Mixture

Just before taking the drops off the fire add some vanilla essence and one table spoon of butter.

Vanilla Essence

Add a Cap Full of Vanilla Essence

Drop spoonfuls of the mixture on a greased tray.

Making Drops of Walnut Mixture

Remove spoonfuls to create drops

Leave it overnight or as required till they dry.

@ Lavina

you need to dissolve the sugar before you proceed with adding the condensed milk as mentioned in the recipe, keep stirring, follow the recipe

its tough to get the walnut drops or any goan sweet at the first go, it all comes with practice.

You probably needed to keep it on the fire for longer till it hardened up.

To know when its ready, you need to take a little out and drop it in some water, if it hardens its ready to be taken out.

If not you need to keep stirring, Im sure you will get it with your next attempt! Be patient and all the best 🙂
