Marble Sandesh

Serves: 3-4


  • 350 gm grated paneer
  • 150 gm powdered or icing sugar
  • 250 ml condensed milk

For the chocolate layer

  • 70 gm chocolate spread, available online or in gourmet grocery stores
  • 100 gm unsweetened cocoa powder

For the coconut layer

  • 100 gm desiccated coconut
  • 1 tsp rose water


  • In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat the grated paneer, powdered sugar, condensed milk over medium heat mixing till it reaches a smooth consistency.
    Take off heat and divide the mixture into two equal portions between two separate bowls.
    Keep aside.

For the coconut layer

  • Take the first bowl of sandesh and add the desiccated coconut and rose water.
    Knead it into a dough-like consistency.
    Keep aside.

For the chocolate layer

  • Take the second bowl of sandesh and add the chocolate spread and cocoa powder.
    Mix well to get a smooth dough.
    Keep aside.

For the assembly

  • Roll the coconut dough into a long cylinder, 2 inches thick.
  • Roll the chocolate dough into a long cylinder, 2 inches thick.
  • Place the coconut dough on top of the chocolate dough and wrap aluminium foil around this double log or these double cylinders.
    Refrigerate for an hour.
    Lightly flatten the two cylinders on a board and, using a round mould, cut into sandesh pieces as per this image.

Note: To make sugar-free sandesh, substitute the sugar with stevia. And opt to swap the chocolate spread for a sugar-free hazelnut chocolate spread, available online. Each brand of stevia has its own stevia for sugar substitution ratio provided on its packing.
