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?! Since Valentine's Day is all about the ones we love, and celebrating that, it seems to make sense that the gifts we give them have a decent amount of time and consideration mixed into them as the relationships themselves. 

Ingredients

Raspberry Coulis

  • 400 g frozen raspberries, thawed
  • 50 g maple syrup
  • Pinch sea salt

Raspberry & Rose Caramel

  • Reduce by ½ ( see video for visual reference ).
  • Remove from the heat and blend till smooth.

  • Add the remaining ingredients and blend on low and move slowly up in speed to reach a silky smooth emulsification.
