A lovely customer sent me this recipe and I couldn't wait to try it out. I love lavender and chocolate together! And lavender is especially delicious with white chocolate!! (Okay, and it looks pretty, too!) Not to mention it's super easy and ready in no time.
Heavenly White Chocolate Lavender Drops
1 12-ounce bag of White Chocolate Chips
1/2 cup coarsely chopped macadamia nuts
1/2 tsp. finely ground culinary lavender
1/2 tsp. whole culinary lavender buds
Microwave the white chocolate in a glass bowl for 2 minutes. Stir the semi-melted chocolate until it's completely smooth. Add the macadamia nuts, ground lavender, and lavender buds.
Stir thoroughly until combined.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, or waxed paper. Drop by teaspoons onto the paper and refrigerate 15 minutes, or until set and hard.
Makes approximately 36 White Chocolate Lavender Drops. Yummy!
NOTE: You can add a few extra buds to the top for more color and a more intense lavender flavor.
Obviously we loved them! And they'll probably make an appearance at the Lawton Farmer's Market this year, which, by the way, opens Saturday, May 4, 2013.
