makes 12
40 minutes

Ingredients

  • 115g of chocolate cake, blitzed into crumbs
  • 150g of dark chocolate, divided into two lots of 75g and melted
  • 1 tsp rose water, be careful not to add too much as it is very strong
  • rose petals, crystallised

Method

1
First, process the cake crumbs. They must be very fine, almost like sand
2
Add half of the melted chocolate and the rose water to the cake crumbs and mix well until you have a ball that can be shaped
3
Leave to chill and firm up for at least 1 hour
4
When you are ready to make the truffles, take a walnut size amount of the truffle mixture and roll it in to a ball, then dip it in the other half of melted chocolate to cover them, continue until all of the mixture is used up
5
Sprinkle some of the crystallised rose petals over the top of the truffles
6
Store them in an airtight container (in the fridge) until needed. They can also be frozen, defrost 6 hours before serving
