Chocolate Gulab Jamuns/Dark Chocolate Gulab Jamuns

Gulab jamuns, these succulent juicy Indian sweets is definitely a must if Indians celebrate a festival, a party, or for a family get-together. Though i live in abroad, even i cant think more than dishing out some juicy gulab jamuns for our parties. Obviously gulab jamuns are our favourite sweets, i have already posted couple of gulab jamuns in my space. However as much as always,sometimes as a blogger we need to think out of the box, hence this chocolate gulab jamuns popped up on my mind. I opened a packet of store bought gulab jamun mix, added two tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder to turn the simple gulab jamun as chocolate gulab jamun.
