  1. Hi I’m planning to try this for Diwali. It looks so tempting. Is it 400 grams powdered sugar? I also see 400 gms of condensed milk. Trying to understand what is the binding ingredient here and will it not be too sweet?

    1. Hi Priya! Thank you! Yes, it is 400 gms of powdered sugar. II just took sugar into blender/mixie and made it into fine powder. The condensed milk is a bit thick right, that itself is enough to bind along with the others. It turns out just as sweet as a toffee. Hope this helps. Just let me know how it turned out too! 🙂
