Rose Infused Raw Cacao Ganache


Opposites really do attract—at least in this three-ingredient recipe that pairs delicate rose petals with powerful raw cacao. The ganache is remarkably smooth and luscious, and the rose topping adds just enough romance. It makes for a scrumptious dessert that comes together in just 5 minutes. Besides, a serving of cocoa has higher concentrations of anti-aging flavonoids than either red wine or green tea.
