Homemade Chocolate Spread Recipe

Assalamualaikum and hello everyone!

So one day I was craving for something sweet and chocolatey. But I was too lazy to bake anything. Then, I go to where you can insert what ingredients you have at that moment and they will suggest what dish can you make from those. So let's see, I have butter, egg, sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla extract. And one of those suggestions is Chocolate Pudding! Sounds yummy aite? I clicked on the link and look at the recipe but the method is kind of emmmm idk but I don't like it hahaha.

Then I googled up "Chocolate pudding recipes" and I found an easy recipe from Hershey's website. C'mon man, it's Hershey's! Sure sedap meh :P And it is so easy, it uses cornstarch ;) After making the pudding and chilled it for a while, unfortunately, it didn't turn out like what I imagined. You know, pudding should be solid and not too runny but this one turned out to look like the Nutella spread! So, I declared myself succeed in making my own chocolate spread!

Ok enough babbling, so here is the recipe.

Homemade Chocolate Spread

2/3 cup sugar (but this is a bit too sweet to me)
1/4 cup Cocoa powder
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
2-1/4 cups milk
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Stir together sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt in medium saucepan; gradually stir in milk.

Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture boils; boil and stir 1 minute. 

Remove from heat; stir in butter and vanilla. 

Pour into jar. 

Chill the spread in the fridge for about three hours.

Disclaimer: I don't really know how long will it last if you don't keep it in the fridge :')

I think this spread is also good for cupcakes fillings or as a dip.

Life Update - December 2016

Assalamualaikum and hello everyone!

Long time no see! (Macam la ada orang baca lol). But who cares hahaha. So my last post was in August 2016 and now it's December! *christmas song.mp3* Here are a few things happened in the past 4 months.

1) I graduated from CFSIIUM yeay! Alhamdulillah I think I did well, although my CGPA is not 4.00 but I am really grateful that I pernah rasa dapat GPA of 4.00 which was on Sem 3, 2015/2016. And that is the best semester ever. The subjects, the lecturers and my financial condition pun was reallyyyyyy okay :')

2) I've done my kuliyyah interview yeay! For those who doesn't know, students of CFSIIUM from several courses (Medic, Pharmacy, Dentistry, Allied Health Sciences and Nursing) will need to attend an interview session to secure a place in kuliyyah (degree). There's a story about the interview process, but I think I'll write it in another post. Just a friendly reminder for those who thinking to apply for CFSIIUM or UIA for your foundation studies, remember this 
UIA and last minute notice berpisah tiada 
3) Along is married! The akad nikah ceremony is on Nov 11, 2016 and the kenduri was held on the day after.

4) I am officially unemployed. I have like almost a year of holiday before entering degree life (it's a very long stories and I am very sure all of CFS students pun dah muak nak bagitahu kenapa). Applied for jobs already but still no replies. So I'm currently staying at home, doing some house chores, socializing through the social media and sometimes I bake and cook new recipes.

5) Fudhla is two years old already! hehehe. She has no biological relationship with me but she is my sister's friend's friend's daughter. Sometimes they babysit her, sometimes they visit her since she was a baby. Oh! She has a baby brother already! His name is Fawwaz. What a handsome name kan!

Okay I think that's all for today. Till next time, bye!
