How to make them:

Truffles:

  • Make a rose cream by adding your organic rose petals to your cream, turn heat on low. Add vanilla extract.

Step 1: Make a rose cream

  • Place your two cups of dark chocolate in a medium microwave safe bowl. 
  • Melt chocolate mixture in the microwave in 15 - 30 second increments, stirring after each, until chocolate is melted and smooth. Be sure to check every few seconds to ensure chocolate doesn't burn.

  • Use a small cookie scoop to scoop out even truffles.
  • Coat your hands in raw cocoa and roll them into even balls. Return to refrigerator while you start next steps.

Coating:

  • Set down some parchment paper or cooling rack on a clean surface.
  • Melt chocolate mixture in the microwave in 15 - 30 second increments, stirring after each, until chocolate is melted and smooth. Be sure to check every few seconds to ensure chocolate doesn't burn. 
  • Place a single truffle on a fork, and dip into melted chocolate.
  • Let extra chocolate drip through the fork slots and carefully move dipped truffle onto your slice of parchment paper or cooling rack. I like to use a cooling rack because it allows extra chocolate to drip off.
  • Allow to set at room temperature.

Step 6: Dip truffles into melted chocolate and garnish if desired

Tips:

  • It is ideal to use quality chocolate meant for melting, like chocolate melts or chocolate chips in this recipe.
  • You will need a little cocoa powder on your fingers and truffles to roll them nicely.
  • Make sure you're using organic / food grade rose for consumption.
  • If you're melted chocolate is cooling too much while you're dipping truffles and becoming too thick, add a tiny bit of the vegetable or coconut oil and. pop back into the microwave for 10-15 seconds.Coconut oil will change the taste of the truffle.

Storage tips:

How to store them:

Store these truffles in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.

Can I freeze these truffles:

Line the truffles on a baking sheet so they are not touching and freeze in the freezer for one hour or until they are hard; this will prevent them from sticking together.  Transfer to a freezer-safe airtight container.  Freeze for up to 2 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight before serving.

Chocolate Choices:

  • Dark Chocolate: Embrace the classic pairing of dark chocolate's depth with the delicate rose notes. I use dark chocolate for mine.
  • White Chocolate: Create a totally different & sweeter experience with white chocolate. You will still need cocoa powder for rolling, but you can use this elegant white chocolate powder instead.
  • Milk Chocolate: For a creamier indulgence, milk chocolate offers a middle ground between the intensity of dark and the sweetness of white.

Additional ways to add rose flavor into these rose truffles:

We used organic rose petals and infused them into milk. However, there are other ways to flavor rose candy if you find you already have one of these other ingredients. With rose, less is more.

  • Rosewater: Add a teaspoon or two of rosewater to your melted chocolate for a subtle floral touch. Start with less and adjust to your preference.
  • Rose Oil: Food-grade rose oil offers a concentrated burst of rose essence. Use a toothpick to dip it lightly and swirl it into the melted chocolate, but use sparingly as it can be potent.

More flavor suggestions:

  • Raspberry Rose: Add a teaspoon of freeze-dried raspberries to the ganache for a delightful fruity twist.
  • Pistachio Rose: Elevate the experience with chopped pistachios folded into the truffle filling for a textural contrast and nutty richness.
  • Spiced Rose: Infuse the chocolate with a pinch of cardamom, cinnamon, or ginger for a warm and exotic touch.

Finishing Touches:

  • Decorating: Drizzle with gold or rose colored luster dust for an elegant touch. Sprinkle with edible rose petals, edible pearls, chopped pistachios, or gold foil for a beautiful look.
  • Packaging: Present your rose truffles in a beautiful box or wrapped in decorative paper for a delightful gift or a luxurious treat for yourself.

With these ideas and a touch of creativity, you can craft rose truffles that are as beautiful as they are delicious. Each bite will transport you to a world of floral elegance and decadent chocolate bliss. So, unleash your inner chocolatier and let the alluring aroma of roses be your valentine.
