Raspberry Rose Bonbons

Raspberry Rose Bonbons

These Raspberry Rose Bonbons are the perfect treat for Valentine’s Day. They do take a bit of time and attention to detail, but what relationship doesn’t?! Valentine’s Day is all about the ones we love, and celebrating that. So, it seems to make sense that the gifts we give them have a decent amount of time and consideration mixed into them. Just as the relationships themselves.

If you haven’t made hollow shells using chocolate before, you’ll see it demo’d in the video below. But you can also check out this post – How to Make Hollow Shells.

The Raspberry Caramel for these comes from an emulsified caramel recipe that I love to work with. I find it hugely versatile. So, in recipes like, Snickers Bites, you’ll see that I have set the caramel in a mould, cut it into squares and enrobed it in chocolate. But in other recipes, which are part of my online courses, you’ll see this base recipe used as a glaze on desserts. Like I said, hugely versatile.

You can make these bonbons using pre-made chocolate (couverture) of your liking or learn how to make your own Stone Ground chocolate in my online Raw Chocolate Course. Either way, I hope you enjoy the process of making these and seeing the joy on the face of the ones you love as they eat them.
