CHOCOLATE ROSE COCONUT ROLL






My Granny used to make the best coconut laddoos, soft and chewy. The fragrance of ghee and cardamom fills the whole house. I remember when I come back from school I used to rush in the kitchen and gobble them without having lunch. 


Today I am revisiting the memories and making the coconut laddoos with few add-ons and a twist. I have used condensed milk instead of sugar syrup. Added rose syrup to give it a different flavour and covered it with chocolate sauce which is like icing on the cake. And yes before I forget to mention this chocolate sauce is a  NO COOK and HEALTHY version. How easy..right?

This chocolate covered coconut truffles are a big hit. I always have them in my fridge. The rose syrup adds a really nice color and flavor to the truffles.And the best part it takes  fairly less time to make these. The next time you are throwing a party at your home give these a shot and trust me your guest will be flattered..:-) They taste too good...Seriously. So do give it try!

Let's get started..

INGREDIENTS:

For Coconut Ladoos:
  • 2 cups desiccated coconut
  • 1/2 cup condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoon rose syrup
For Chocolate Syrup



  • 1/8 cup Cacao Powder (Substitute: Cocoa powder) 
  • 1/2  cup Coconut Milk ( Substitute: Heavy Whipping cream )  
  • 1/2 cup Maple Syrup ( Substitute: Honey) 
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla extract 
  • A pinch of Salt (I have used Himalayan Pink Salt)



  • METHOD:

    • Dry roast the desiccated coconut on a low flame for a minute. Make sure it doesn't burn. We are looking for a nutty flavor. Turn off the flame.


    • Add condensed milk and rose syrup. Mix well.


    • Now make the round rolls out of the mixture.

    • For the chocolate sauce, in a bowl whisk all the ingredients (cacao powder, coconut milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract and salt) well. Make sure there are no lumps.

    • Now cover the coconut rolls with the chocolate sauce.

    • Line a pan or any dish with parchment paper and place the chocolate covered rolls on it.

    • Freeze it for 3-4 hours. 


    These chocolate rolls need to be stored in the fridge else they will melt.


    Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
