These fritters are definitely for people who are fond of spicy food. The heat from the fresh green chilies hits you right on the palate combined with the sweetness coming from the corn kernels and onions along with the mellow flavor of mozzarella cheese. They all blend really well with each other resulting into an amazing recipe!

I just combined some ingredients ready on hand and came up with these fritters. It is really easy to prepare and very less preparation involved. Relish them with your favorite dips.

As known to all, oatmeal is very well known for its many beneficial factors like  it helps lower cholesterol, encourages slow digestion, gluten-free etc. I have used orange flavor cooking chocolate over here for this recipe. Feel free to create your own variations by shaping them differently or using a different flavor cooking chocolate.

IMG_4668

Ingredients (Makes 10 chocolate bars)
2 cups oats
¾ cup condensed milk
200 gm cooking chocolate (I have use orange flavor here)
50 gm (roughly) dark chocolate
2 tbsp fresh cream
IMG_4633

Method

  • Dry roast oats in a pan on a low flame for about 5-7 minutes. You will get the aroma of popcorn when they are done.
  • Blitz in a mixer grinder and form it into a coarse powder.

Cheesecake

  • Melt dark chocolate for 30 seconds in a microwave. Add roasted oats powder, milkmaid and fresh cream. Combine well to form a dough. You will have to use your hands for this step. It will be a little sticky at this point.

Cheesecake1

  • Place a cling film on the mould (I have used an ice tray here) and evenly spread the oats mixture. Cover it up and let it sit in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.

Cheesecake (2)

  • Melt cooking chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds. Give it a mix and microwave for another 20- 30 seconds if required.
  • Remove the sticks from the tray and dip them one by one into the melted chocolate coating them evenly with the help of a spoon and a fork (it helps get rid of the excess chocolate).

  • It looks a little messy here, but it will come out perfect once they’re set. Place it in the refrigerator for another 15-20 minutes and you’re done.
