Chocolate Ice Lollies - the Doodle way!

I used to be a voracious doodler in my childhood. The margins of the first books that I read, Mahabharata and Ramayana, were filled with my own depictions of the events. While at school (3rd/4th standard), we were told that if we accompanied our answers with pictorial representations, it would fetch us better marks. It tickled the artist in me and I would fill the pages with various food images to illustrate sources of vitamins. I wonder now if the teacher laughed softly or really hard looking at them.

A few days back I came upon this contest that required us to doodle our way through a recipe. It made me stop in my tracks and ponder if that doodler still resided inside me. Rather, should I unleash that doodler upon unsuspecting readers (if at all anybody stumbles onto my page)? I decided to prod out the child of yore and make her doodle about the food she had enjoyed most during her childhood. The recipe that you see here is what we had concocted as children at our grandparents’ place during summer holidays. The refrigerator had just come into the market and we had a white Kelvinator occupying the place of honour in the kitchen. Here is the ‘doodle recipe’ of one of my favourite childhood indulgences:

Chocolate Ice Lollies


3-4 scoops of Bournvita/Chocolate Horlicks or whatever chocolate drink mix you prefer
1 glass full cream milk
½ cup condensed milk


Combine all the ingredients together. Pour into moulds and freeze for around 3 hours or till the lollies become firm.

Enjoy these chocolate ice lollies like we did then, swinging our feet from the branches of trees or by the side of the pond, without any care in the world. Or, just slurp away!

My Doodle recipe is a part of Easy Doodle Recipe contest at in association with

    1. Oh thank you so much, Anita! I was beginning to feel very bad looking at the great stuff you and the others have put up. You know what, I am actually planning to make this for my son now :)

  3. It was one of the cutest doodles I have seen in thr contest! The slurping in the end comes across very nicely. Craving has started! Good luck and thank you. ;-)
