Chocolate Rose Truffles and a Virtual Babyshower

 

Bite sized desserts are always a delight to eat. You don’t always want to dig in a huge slice of cake. Sometimes you need to enjoy melt in your mouth delicious Chocolate Rose Truffles.

Rose is such an exotic flavor. It is subtle yet so unique and beautiful. Rose is used a lot in Indian desserts. I was initially skeptical about pairing it with dark chocolate. But trust me, the result is divine.

And hence these Chocolate Rose Truffles are perfect to celebrate Kathy’s virtual babyshower. My friend Katherine, a fellow blogger at Loveinmyoven is expecting :). I love kids, especially babies and if we lived close-by, I would have surely volunteered to babysit for her. She has two adorable boys and I am so excited that she is expecting a girl this time!

It’s been a while I met all of these lovely people on Instagram and so I was more than happy when Kelly asked me to participate in this fun virtual babyshower with several other food bloggers.

Coming back to these Chocolate Rose Truffles. You don’t need any fancy equipment to make these little bites of heaven. Truffles are basically soft chocolate ganache balls. These ones are flavored with the aromatic Gulkand, also called as Rose Petal Jam. If you can’t find Gulkand, you can use Rosewater to flavor these truffles. But in case you don’t fancy rose, try these Bailey’s Chocolate Truffles for a deep and dark taste.

Truffles make for great gifts too. And these ones would make for a great romantic gift on Valentine’s. Roses are full of romance, aren’t they!

Chocolate Rose Truffles are the easiest and most delightful dessert to make. The exotic flavors of rose go so well with the deep rich flavors of chocolate.

  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons Cream
  • 1 tablespoon + 1/2 teaspoon Gulkand or Rose Petal Jam
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Essence
For Coating
  • 2 cups Dark chocolate chips
For Garnish
  • 140 grams Chopped white chocolate
  • 2 drops Pink Gel color
Instructions
  1. Heat the cream in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring the cream to a near boil.

  2. Pour the cream over the chopped dark chocolate. Leave for 2-3 minutes. Stir with a spoon until the ganache is completely smooth and no lumps remain.

  3. Now add the Gulkand(Rose Petal Jam) and vanilla essence to the ganache. Mix well. 

  4. Place the pan in the refrigerator and chill for 40 minutes to an hour.

  5. Now using a heaped tablespoon at a time, roll the ganache into balls.

  6. Place the balls in the fridge for half an hour.
