Truffles are one of my favourite on the go dessert! I have experimented with a lot of flavours. White chocolate, Dark chocilate, Coconut, Strawberry are to name a few. However this time to give it a Desi flavour, I have used Gulkand used in Paan which has a distinct aroma and delectable flavor. Try it out and treat your family and friends this Holi!

Preparation Time : 30 minutes

Setting Time : 2 hours


White Chocolate : 500 grams, chopped

Butter : 50 grams

Pink / Red food coloring : 2 to 3 drops (optional)

Fresh cream : 1 cup

Condensed milk : 2 tablespoons

Gulkand : 4-5 tablespoons

Rosewater : 1 teaspoon (optional)

Dessicated coconut / Icing sugar / Sprinkles to roll the truffles


In a microwave safe bowl, take the cream and butter. Microwave at HIGH until just boiling for about 1 minute. *You can alternatively use a non stick pan and let the cream and butter come to a boil for about a minute.

Remove from microwave / flame and add the chopped chocolate, food coloring and gulkand. Add the rosewater.  Stir until the mixture until the chocolate has melted.

Microwave / heat for 30 seconds more if you are having trouble melting the chocolate. Mix well.

Place this mixture in the fridge for minimum 2 hours.

Take out from fridge and roll even amounts of mixture into balls of about 1/2 inch. Put back into the fridge for 10-15 minutes.

Now roll these balls in dessicated coconut or icing sugar or sprinkles of your choice.

Place in a small paper cup to lend a complete look. Serve at room temperature  .

* You can store these Truffles in the Refrigerator for 4-5 days and treat your guests!!!
