Milk Fudge - 3 Ingredient Quick Dessert




About: I am a simple person by nature performing several roles in life - a daughter, a wife, a mom and a girl :-)

For Christmas this year, I wanted to try something new which my daughter can also enjoy. So, I decided to make malai peda/milk fudge. Milk Fudge is also called Malai Peda in India and is popularly made in North India in most festivals. It is a very easy dish and extremely liked by all including kids. Its made with just 3 ingredients, hence easy. Please try it and I am sure you will love it. Thank you.

Step 1: Ingredients

  1. Milk Powder - 1 Cup
  2. Whipping Cream - 1/2 Cup
  3. Sugar - 1/3 cup
  4. Cardamom Powder - 1/2 tsp (For flavour. You could use nutmeg powder or cinnamom powder or anything of your choice)
  5. Food color - optional (For Decoration)
  6. Sprinkles - Optional (For Decoration)
  7. Dry Fruit shavings - Optional (For Decoration)

Step 2: Preparation Steps:

  1. Mix heavy cream and milk powder in a pot and keep mixing till it gets thicker.
  2. Ensure you keep mixing continuously else it might burn or stick to the bottom of the pan.I
  3. t will start leaving the sides of the pan and become like a thick dough. This thick dough is called Mawa.
  4. Immediately transfer to a plate in-order to stop the cooking process.
  5. When its luke warm, add cardamom powder and sugar.
  6. Ensure you add sugar only after the dough cools down else sugar will melt and the batter will become thin.
  7. Ensure it is luke warm and not completely cold because if it cools completely, then it will form cracks while making milk fudge patties.
  8. Add food color of your choice for a festive look. I have used yellow, red and green food color to make yellow, red and green milk fudge/malai peda respectively.
  9. Make patties/diamond shapes and decorate with sprinkles or crushed nuts.

The 3 ingredient dessert which is so tasty and super easy to make is ready. Enjoy your milk fudge!

    Milk powder, whipping cream and sugar are the 3 ingredients. You don't need the others. You could add them if you wish.

    Thank you. Just one tip - make patties while its little hot, don't allow it to cool else it will form cracks while making patties. If this happens, then try to microwave it for 5 secs or so. Good luck!
