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.
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
Put the fresh milk on the fire and let it boil till half.
Add the sugar and stir occasionally till it dissolves.
Once all the sugar has dissolved add the condensed milk.
Stir continuously till you find the mixture nice and thick.
Add the cocoa powder to the mixture and stir till its mixed evenly.
After its evenly mixeed you can add the walnuts.
Just before taking the drops off the fire add some vanilla essence and one table spoon of butter.
Drop spoonfuls of the mixture on a greased tray.
Leave it overnight or as required till they dry.
Eat them or pack them everyones going to enjoy them!

my name is julia. I have tried this receipe and it turned out awesome! but in future, for my walnut receipe, I shall probably use 1 1/2 cup walnuts. anyway, thanks for the wonderful receipe. I would like to have a receipe on how to make a simple fruit cake.
I've tried the milk cream receipe and it turned out awesome. The tip on testing the consistency in water really helped a lot
you need to dissolve the sugar before you proceed with adding the condensed milk as mentioned in the recipe, keep stirring, follow the recipe
Hi, I tried making the walnut drops,it tasted good however I was not able to completely dissolve the sugar. Can you pls suggest what went wrong .Thanks for the site..
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 🙂
