5 ingredient Chocolate Almond Coconut Ladoo or Truffles for special or festive occasions.

Here I am today sharing delicious easy and quick Ladoo recipe for festivals or your special occasions. These are no fuss ladoos that you can make within 30 mins from start to finish.

Ladoos are spherical shaped sweet meats popular in India and are basically made with flour, sugar and ghee with added nuts and flavors like cardamom, nutmeg. these are made for daily snacking or on festivals to offer as Prasad to The Almighty/ Deity, or share among family and friends.

These Chocolate Almond Coconut Ladoos are the variation of popular Coconut Ladoos.

Coconut Ladoos

Coconut Ladoos are made with fresh or desiccated coconut. Many people cook it the traditional way, cooking coconut in milk till the milk and coconut mixture thickens and all the liquid is evaporated. This is quite a time consuming task. So there are instant versions made with condensed milk.

I like to make the condensed milk version when pressed on time. You can add different flavors like rose, chocolate, paan or orange in the basic coconut ladoo recipe and enjoy the variations.

In my post I am sharing here Coconut Chocolate version. I have also added almond flour here for the nutty variation. Almond flour/meal adds so much of texture to these Ladoos. So let’s see how I make Cardamom flavored Chocolate Coconut Ladoos with Almond flour.

Ingredients to make Chocolate Almond Coconut Ladoo

Desiccated Coconut– Use unsweetened desiccated coconut. The coconut flakes should not be very thick as the texture of ladoos with thin/fine flakes is very good.

Almond Flour/Meal– I have used store bought Almond flour here, you can use almond meal also. Or, if both are not available at your place you can lightly dry roast almonds and grind to fine powder once almonds cool.

Cocoa Powder– For the Chocolate flavour.

Condensed Milk- It gives the base/ structure to ladoos and binds the ingredients together. I have added 1/2 Cup, you can add a bit more if you want sweeter ladoos.

Cardamom Powder and Ghee– Adds flavor.
