Our raspberry rose truffles are extremely easy to make, and taste creamy, rich and outrageously delicious! You barely need more than white chocolate, freeze-dried raspberries and rosewater to whip up these tempting treats. Of course, we created printable gift boxes, which you can download at the end of this post, so you can give the truffles to friends and family or as wedding and party favors.

Shelf life & storage of the truffles
Store the truffles in the fridge to a week, or freeze uncoated truffles for up to a month. Allow frozen truffles to defrost in the fried until they become soft and their surface feels dry to the touch.
- 300 g (10.5 oz) white chocolate, chopped into bits
- 80 ml (1/3 cup) heavy cream
- 55 g (1/4 cup / 1/2 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 2 tbsp rose water
- 40 g (1.5 oz) freeze dried raspberries
- powdered (icing/confectioner’s) sugar for decorating
Crush the raspberries. Using a food processor or blender, pulse the freeze-dried raspberries into fine crumbs.
Melt the chocolate. Add the chocolate, cream and butter into a microwave-safe bowl and heat in the microwave set to medium-high in 30-second intervals until the chocolate has completely melted. Stir between each interval until perfectly combined.
Make and chill the mixture. Add the ground raspberries and rosewater, and whisk until well blended but avoid adding to much air into the mix. Cover with cling film and make sure to place the cling film right on the surface. Allow to come to room temperature before putting the mixture into the refrigerator to firm up for 4 to 6 hours or overnight.
Form the truffles. Use a cookie or small ice cream scoop to form balls of truffle mixture. Set them on a plate lined with cling film and let them chill in the fridge for 30 minutes to an hour. Add a little icing sugar to the truffles and carefully roll the truffles between the palms of your hands until they’re evenly coated.
Tip: If the truffle mixture becomes too warm to be handled, refrigerate so it firms up again.
Craft the favour box
Print the treat box on DIN A4 or US letter size cardstock or photo paper and cut out the grey lines and around the rose. Working with a bone folder and ruler, crease along the grey lines and fold the sides inwards. Make a cut along the grey solid lines next to the two rose halves.
Put glue on all the flaps that say “Glue”. You can either use double-sided tape, a strong glue stick, or superglue. To assemble the lid, adhere the sides parts to assemble and slot the rose halves together to close the box. Now your favor box is ready to be filled with raspberry rose truffles!
Tip: We also printed the decorative pattern on the back of the printable so the favor box looks pretty on the inside as well.
