Chocolate seems liked a good combination with the penda – so here it goes!IMG_3752

This recipe makes a good home family portion – about 12-14 small pendas and they are perfect for gifts!IMG_3756

1/2 Can Condensed Milk
1/2 Cup Milk powder
1/2 Cup of dark Chocolate
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp Ghee
Chopped mixed nuts


In a fry pan, add the condensed milk and milk powder.


Stir to gether the condensed mlk and milk powder until combined.


Heat up the pan on low to medium heat and add ghee and chocolate.


Keep stirring and the mixture will slowly thicken.


The mixture will start to form into a dough, don’t allow to get to thick, as the penda will not be soft.


Grease a worktop space and place mixture on to the grease surface to cool. After about 8-10 minutes should be cool enough to work with. Grease your hands with a little ghee and knead the dough briefly.


Take a little dough and roll into a ball and flatten slightly, you should be able to roll all the pendas while they are still warm.


Sprinkle on some chopped nuts to each penda


Allow to cool completely and enjoy.
