Boozy chocolate recipes for Holi
Too late to make gujiyas? Whip up a sinful mousse or bake some chewy cookies
Gujiyas, samosas and bhaang are classics. But, if you want to expand the Holi menu or make last-minute sweet treats, combine chocolate with alcohol. Devashree Muni, chef and founder of the Cocoa Cellar, a patisserie known for booze-infused desserts in Mumbai, shares two recipes for the festival of colours. One of them travels well and that can mean only one thing—book a Dunzo delivery and share it with friends and family for a socially-distanced Holi.
