One of the good parts about weekends is the fact that one can devote an ample amount of time to something that one may otherwise be unable to do amid a busy schedule. One such activity is baking. While the lockdown gave many of us that amount of time, given that the distinction between weekdays and weekend actually became blurred, yet for many of us, work from home took most of our time and energy. If you have just recently started with making desserts, here is a fine no-bake recipe that will become an instant crowd pleaser and is a perfect one for lovely family time.

Wondering what it is?

Chef Meghna Kamdar from Meghna’s Food Magic fame recently shared the chocolatey recipe of Cream Cheese Lemon Pista Truffle Balls.
