All you need is L O V E
It’s the Day of Love all over the world and what better way to say ‘I Love You’ than giving roses. But, what happens when you appreciate and admire flowers, but they make you sneeze and want to scratch out your eyes? You give someone the special gift of rose flavoured dessert, of course. 😉
Rose Dessert Pots
These little desserts require only about 15minutes of your time. Let’s be realistic – who wants to slave away on Valentine’s day? Things to do, people to see. 😀
Better yet, you can make them the day before and just keep them in the fridge overnight. They are equally delicious!
When making these little desserts, it is important to watch how much rose water you add. The rose flavour should come through very subtly in the pudding. If you add too much rose water your pudding will taste artificial. Think about smelling a rose – the smell is delicate, delightful, and almost shy. It is never overpowering. This is what you are aiming for in your little pots.
There is no cream in the recipe, thus making it somewhat lighter to eat. These little dessert pots are quite sweet, so a dollop of cream or a dollop of half cream half yogurt with a rose petal on top would break the sweetness well. You can also add a drop of strawberry rose jam just before service for some colour, and of course a lovely green mint sprig to give it a nice contrasting look.
These little white chocolate rose pots are just big enough to satisfy your sweet tooth happy, while leaving enough room for the rest of the Champagne.
Go on, give your Valentine the gift of rose – a little white chocolate rose pot.
White Chocolate Rose Pots
2 x 80g Slabs of White Chocolate of 1 x 150gSlab of White Chocolate (it depends what you can find at the supermarket; the 10g won’t make a difference)
1/2 Cup Full-Cream Milk
1 Cup Double Cream / Greek Yogurt
Garnish: Strawberry Rose Jam / A Mixture of Cream and Yogurt and a Few Mint Sprigs
Cut the chocolate into smaller pieces and place it in a large bowl.
Heat the milk to scalding temperature and pour over the white chocolate. Leave the milk for a few minutes to start melting the chocolate. Mix the chocolate and milk until all of the chocolate has been melted and the mixture is smooth. A thin ganache.
Mix the yogurt in a separate bowl to make sure it is smooth.
Let the chocolate ganache cool slightly then fold in the yogurt.
Add rose water into the mixture, one drop at a time. Be careful not to add to much rose essence. The taste should be subtle. Add a drop, taste and add some more if necessary.
Divide into four little pots.
Refrigerate until cold. It kan keep in the fridge overnight.
Garnish with a dollop of strawberry rose jam or a dollop of yogurt cream and a fresh mint sprig just before service.
I love chai latte and this is the cold pudding version of that. The subtle earthy taste of cardamom with the cinnamon and a hint of nutmeg is a marvelous combination!
