Happy Diwali - White Chocolate and Nut Barfi

Happy Diwali.... Take 2! 
I try a different combo of barfi or Indian sweets every year and this has got to be one of my favourite experiments!! The yummy crunch of chopped nuts and white chocolate pieces layered in between give this a great texture and flavour!  It is my modern twist to the usual flavours you will find in your local Indian sweet shops!
I use this recipe below and have added chopped nuts and small pieces of white chocolate.... the possibilities are endless! 

Improvising with a candle box I found spare in my cupboard!  They fit perfectly and  wonderful to present as a gift. :-)


200g milk powder

150ml carton double cream
1tbsp butter
1tsp ground cinammon powder
60g chopped nuts
397g can condensed milk
50g chopped white chocolate

50g melted white chocolate

1)Mix the milk powder and double cream until it forms a thick and crumbly paste
2)Heat the butter over a low heat and stir in the cinnamon and nuts and toast for a few minutes
3)Add the cream mixture and the condensed milk.  The mixture will be solid to start wit but will soften as you heat.  Keep stirring until the mixture starts to come away from the sides.
4)Stir through the white chocolate and pour into a non stick tray to a 2-3cm thickness.
Spread over the melted white chocolate and add sprinkles and glitter!
5)Allow to cool and set in fridge... cut into squares :-)
