About this recipe: Turkish delights or loukoums are usually flavoured with fruit or flower water (rose, orange flower water...). I adapted the recipe and added some chocolate to please all chocolate lovers. Divine!


Serves: 8 

  • 2 egg whites
  • 75g milk powder (or 25ml of regular milk)
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1kg sugar cubes
  • 100g cooking chocolate, grated
  • 125g cornflour
  • a few drops of orange flower water (optional)
  • Icing sugar (or cocoa powder if desired)

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Whisk the egg whites until stiff; set aside.
  2. In a saucepan, add 1.5 litres of water, then milk powder, lemon juice, sugar cubes, grated chocolate and egg whites.
  3. Bring to the boil, stir well to dissolve sugar and simmer for 5 minutes then skim off the foam and bring to the boil once again.
  4. Add the cornflour to 25ml of water in a large bowl and pour into the chocolate mixture; stir until thickened. A drop of the mixture should then stick to the spoon and then slowly slip away.
  5. Add the orange flower water if desired. Pour this mixture into a rectangular dish.
  6. Leave to cool down then sprinkle with icing sugar (or cocoa powder to taste) then slice the Turkish delights into 2 or 3cm cubes.
  7. Sprinkle with sugar again and serve. You can also sprinkle them with icing sugar mixed with cocoa powder. That will create black and white spots on the loukoums.
