    Raspberry Rose Truffles are beautiful chocolate truffles with the delicate flavor of roses and tart, tangy raspberries. These candies are a good introduction to floral confections, since the rose flavor is pronounced but not overwhelming, and goes so well with the fruity raspberry.

     How lovely are these rose-shaped meringue pops? The subtly rose-scented meringues are sandwiched around rich dark chocolate, so each bite has a mix of crunchy and creamy textures, and floral and chocolatey flavors. Try giving your loved ones a bouquet of these instead of traditional roses!

     Rose Marshmallows have a delicate rose taste to match their light and fluffy texture.  These marshmallows are good plain, but I especially love them dipped in chocolate. As a bonus, if you dip them in chocolate, you can top them with real rose petals for a gorgeous garnish!

     This Lavender Fudge is a smooth, creamy fudge with a melt-in-your-mouth texture and a lovely lavender flavor! They're perfect plain, but to really gild the lily (or the lavender?) give them a chocolate drizzle and a topping of lavender, small fondant flowers, or purple candies.

     Lavender-Vanilla Bean Marshmallows combine two beautifully subtle, elegant flavors in a lovely light purple marshmallow. The fresh, soft marshmallows are infused with dried lavender and flecked with specks of vanilla seeds to give them a sophisticated floral fragrance and gourmet taste.

     Lavender Milk Chocolate Truffles pair the mild, smooth taste of milk chocolate with the delicate flavor of lavender. I like the way these look when cut into squares and sprinkled with a pinch of lavender on top, but you can roll them into traditional circles and decorate them however you'd like.
