Oh God!!! How I love Dark Chocolate. I do not have enough words to express my love for it. I always liked liked Ladoos as a kid so I decided to combine the two and came up with this new sweet dish. I initially planned to combine dark chocolate with regular wheat flour and make ladoos and then I found unused buckwheat flour still lying around in my larder and so I decided to replace wheat flour with buckwheat and believe me it tastes equally good or should I say better?
