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!

Whisk the egg whites until stiff; set aside.
In a saucepan, add 1.5 litres of water, then milk powder, lemon juice, sugar cubes, grated chocolate and egg whites.
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.
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.
Add the orange flower water if desired. Pour this mixture into a rectangular dish.
Leave to cool down then sprinkle with icing sugar (or cocoa powder to taste) then slice the Turkish delights into 2 or 3cm cubes.
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.
