Easy Gulkand Filled Chocolate is just healthy enough and satisfies your chocolate cravings!
Gulkand is a sweet preserve of rose petals that’s so easy to make at home. I used my homemade gulkand for this(I will post a recipe soon). You can always use store bought ones.
The Selection of the roses are important, since there are many types of it. You should choose the roses that are loaded with aroma. So that, I used Paneer Roses that are available in many parts of India.
Now that the filling is ready, next is you have to infuse the rose flavor in Chocolate. So I infused in Ossoro’s Oil Soluble Rose Essence. You should use only Oil Soluble Essence in Chocolates.
Choosing a good quality Chocolate is what gives best result. Mainly there are 2 types of Chocolate – Compound and Couverture.
Compound Chocolate is made from Cocoa solids and couverture is made from cocoa butter. That’s the major difference! Couverture chocolates are the high quality ones and there are different percentage of Cocoa butter used in each brand. Here I used Amul Chocolate.
You can buy all the bakery requirements and this Ossoro Flavors from Bakerykart website!
