Date and Nut Choco Orange Ladoo

Date and Nut Choco Orange ladoos are delicious sugar free ladoos made with dates , nuts , cocoa and candied peel . They have a citrusy orange flavor..

I made these ladoos a few months back when I was traveling to Chennai .These ladoos were meant to be my signature ladoos . The Fruit and Nut Ladoos . I roasted the nuts and chopped the dates and then realised that these were being made for Valli and Veena . I immediately changed the recipe and decided to use cocoa powder to these , I know Valli’s love for chocolates , even her kids they want everything with chocolate . It was only after I met Veena in Chennai that I knew she is not very fond of chocolates !

I added some candied peel and orange flavouring to these ladoos and while tasting the mix for these ladoos I realised that the candied peel tasted divine . I actually love candied peel and specially the one I get from Amsterdam . It has a amazing flavour . Fortunately my stocks is refilled as I have a nephew in Amsterdam . Valli will tell you guys as to how these ladoos turned out . To finish up I rolled the ladoos into vermicelli and nut powder .

  1. Another awesome recipe. Dates and nuts would be enough for me but chocolate and orange peel take it to another level. I bet they tasted great.

  2. Vaishali, these were so yummy and my hubby enjoyed it so much too, even though he is not fond of chocolates. Had I know you were giving these to Veena as well, I would have got it from here…hehehe..Why do you think I stick with her all the time?..I can get her share as well..hahahaha…pls have this in mind and not reveal to her ok..Enjoyed this ladoo series. To remember that you started making ladoos with so much hesitation and now you are the ladoo master!..

  3. Wow this is such an amazing laddoo and the addition of orange is just amazing, can imagine the taste of this laddoo just on looking at those cuties. Excellent one.
