Rose Petal Chocolate

I finally learned how to temper chocolate! Then I made my beautiful friend Emma a birthday present – dark chocolate with rose petals. Wrapped it all up ready to go. Then realised that I needed to photograph it! Unwrapped the chocolate. Took photos. Wrapped it back up again. Haha!

Now, there are 2 ways to make this chocolate.

The first way is the raw chocolate method, where the mixture is kept under 46°C. This will result in a fudgey, softer chocolate.

The second way is to temper the chocolate. This requires a few more skills in the kitchen (you will be juggling a whisk with a thermometer), and some nifty timing, but it results in a harder, more shiny chocolate which makes a satisfying “snap” when you break it.

It’s up to you. Both taste awesome.

Ingredients

125g cacao butter, chopped into small pieces

3 tbsp maple syrup

3 1/2 tbsp raw cacao powder

1 tbsp dried rose petals

Let’s Do This!

Method 1: Raw Chocolate

In a double boiler over a very low heat, warm your cacao butter gently until melted, being careful not to heat it above 46°C.

Add the maple syrup and cacao powder and which until smooth.

Take off the heat and pour onto a tray that’s been lined with baking paper.

Wait a few minutes for it to cool slightly, and then sprinkle with rose petals.

Refrigerate until set, and then break into bite-sized chunks.

Method 2: Tempered Chocolate. 

In a double boiler over a very low heat, warm your cacao butter gently until melted.

Add the maple syrup and cacao powder, and heat to exactly 49°C.

Take off the heat and whisk briskly until the mixture cools to 27°C.

Pop it back on the heat and take it up to 32°C, but NO HIGHER.

Take off the heat and pour onto a tray that’s been lined with baking paper.

Wait a few minutes for it to cool slightly, and then sprinkle with rose petals.

Refrigerate until set, and then break into bite-sized chunks.

      You can usually find them at health food shops as “rose petal tea.” 🙂
