It’s been a while since I’ve shared a dessert with you all! I’ve had the urge to play around with some raw slices and chocolates and wanted to include the ingredient, rose in one of them.I went with the slice and the complimentary chocolate to sweeten everyone’s taste buds. The chocolates I’ll make will be either coconut or peppermint centred. If you have any preference in which flavour you’d prefer, please let me know in the comments below!
I’ve never actually used rose water in anything before, so I was excited to try something different. I also used some rose petals to sprinkle on the top to make it that extra bit pretty. It looks like quite a feminine dessert.
I don’t think you can go wrong with rose and chocolate. I’ve experimented with it a few times to test what would work better and to refine the ingredients and sweetness.
I’m also planning on experimenting and making vegan Turkish delights with this rose water. Has anyone made them before? Any tips?
Everyone that has tried this rose and chocolate raw slice have fallen in love with it, and I hope you do too!
For this recipe, it’s ideal that the cashews are soaked for at least 2 hours so they can become nice and creamy when blended. If you don’t have time for that, just make sure you add some water and blend it for longer. The consistency may not be the same, but it shouldn’t affect the flavour.
If you have a super sweet tooth, you can add a little more maple syrup into the topping part of the slice. I didn’t want to make it sickly sweet as raw desserts on their own can be dense and overpowering if there’s too much going on.
