Before we dive into the recipe, let’s gather our ingredients:

  • 1 glass of semolina (150 g)
  • 3 full tablespoons of cocoa
  • 1 and a half cups of granulated sugar (250 g)
  • 1 liter of milk
  • Dried coconut for coating (optional)

Now that we have everything ready, let’s get started on this delightful journey!

How to Make an Easy Snack with Just 4 Ingredients?

1. Mixing the Dry Ingredients

To begin, take a bowl and combine 1 glass of semolina with 3 tablespoons of cocoa. Give them a good mix, ensuring an even distribution of both ingredients. Set this mixture aside; we’ll be using it shortly.

2. Melting the Sugar

In a wide and deep pot, place 1 and a half cups of granulated sugar. It’s essential not to touch the sugar with a spoon until it completely melts. You’ll notice the sugar starting to melt from the sides; gently shake the pot to displace any unmelted candies. Once all the sugar has melted and turned into a beautiful caramel, you can turn off the stove.

3. Adding Milk and Reheating

Now, using a wooden spoon, stir the melted sugar gently. Slowly pour in 1 liter of milk while continuing to stir. Don’t worry if the sugar begins to solidify; we’ll take care of that. Place the mixture back on the stove.

4. Cooking the Semolina and Cocoa Mixture

Add the semolina and cocoa mixture you prepared earlier into the pot. Keep stirring the mixture constantly to prevent lumps from forming. Once it starts to boil, continue to cook for an additional 2 minutes, and then remove the pot from the stove.

5. Preparing the Dessert for Cooling

Take a small, deep glass jar, wet it with water, and pour off any excess water. Transfer the dessert mixture into a baking tray, spreading it out evenly. Allow it to cool slightly at room temperature before covering it with stretch film.

6. Chilling in the Refrigerator

Place the tray in the refrigerator and let the dessert rest for approximately 2 hours. This will allow it to set and become firm.

7. Cutting and Serving

After the cooling period, remove the dessert from the refrigerator. Carefully invert it onto a cutting board and cut it into square slices. For an extra touch, you can coat the slices with a generous layer of dried coconut.


There you have it – a quick and delightful dessert that’s ready in just 10 minutes, without the need for an oven. The combination of semolina, cocoa, sugar, and milk creates a mouthwatering treat that’s perfect for satisfying your sweet cravings. Whether you enjoy it on its own or share it with friends and family, this dessert is sure to be a hit.

Now, why wait? Get into the kitchen and treat yourself to this delectable sweet sensation!
