Rose Flavored Chocolate Creams

rose chocolate creams
This recipe is from Chocolate and Cocoa Recipes, a little chocolate cookbook printed in 1909.

  • Fondant [see recipe below]
  • Damask rose color-paste,
  • 1/2 to 1 whole teaspoonful of rose extract,
  • 1/2 pound of Baker's "Dot" Chocolate.

Put a part or the whole of the fondant into a double boiler over boiling water. With the point of a toothpick take up a little of the color-paste and add to the fondant; add the extract and stir until the mixture is hot, thin and evenly tinted. With two teaspoons drop the mixture into impressions made in starch; it should be hot and thin enough to run level on top. When the shapes are cold, remove from the starch, brush carefully and coat with "Dot" Chocolate.


  • 2 ½ cups of sugar,
  • 1/3 a cup of glucose (pure corn syrup),
  • 1 cup of water.

Put the sugar, glucose and water over the fire and stir until boiling, then wash down the sides of the saucepan, cover and finish cooking as in making ordinary fondant. Let cook to 238° F. Turn the syrup onto a damp marble or platter and before it becomes cold turn to a cream with a wooden spatula. When the fondant begins to stiffen, scrape at once into a bowl and cover with a damp cloth, but do not let the cloth touch the fondant.
