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!!!
