  • Milk powder - 1 cup
  • Horlicks powder (chocolate flavor) – ½ cup
  • Sugar - 1 cup
  • Water - ½ cup
  • Butter - 2 ½ tbsp
  • Almond flakes - 2 tbsp


  • Sieve together milk powder and horlicks powder. If any lumps in horlicks powders is seen then grind them and use it. Keep this mixture aside for further use.
  • Take a thick bottom wok, heat sugar and water on medium flame, with continuous stirring. Sugar dissolves completely and it starts forming syrup.
  • When the syrup reaches single thread consistency (check the thread formation by seeing the thin thread formation between index finger and thumb) switch off the flame.
  • Now quickly add butter and mix vigorously to dissolve. Next add milk powder and horlicks powder mixture to the above. Mix everything quickly to make it lump free.
  • Pour this into ghee greased tray or baking tray, spread the mixture evenly and sprinkle the almond flakes on top, press them lightly.
  • Make the markings when the burfi is still hot. After its cool or completely cooled, cut them into squares, carefully remove the horlicks fudge or burfi pieces. Store them in airtight containers and enjoy with family and friends!


Preparation of almond flakes: Soak whole almond for an hour, remove the skin and slice them thin to get flakes
Sugar syrup is very important. Single thread consistency is the key, so be careful while preparing the syrup.
Be quick in mixing all the ingredients into the sugar syrup, else lump formation is seen.
Always mark the burfi when it’s still hot, otherwise you will not get proper squares.
Any flavor of horlicks can be used instead of chocolate.
