“Don’t buy me roses, I’d rather eat them,” said no girl ever… until now. Make these little melt in your mouth treats and maybe you’ll say the same thing. This Rose and Coconut Fudge tastes as it sounds… like rose-flavored coconut fudge. Drizzle a little chocolate on top and you’ve got chocolate and roses in one tiny bundle. This soft fudge is made with just five ingredients: rose water, coconut butter, beet juice, honey and water (chocolate is optional).
You’ll also need a candy mold – I’ve saved some fun designs on my Luvocracy profile (hearts, roses, dinosaurs, etc). I’ll tell you all about Luvocracy in just a second!
First – for those unfamiliar with coconut butter – it’s the meat of the coconut (plus coconut oil). It’s rich and creamy and perfectly spreadable. But, if it’s cold outside – it can harden and become pretty crumbly. To fix this, just put your jar (lid removed) in some simmering water over the stove. This hot water bath will make coconut butter nice and creamy.
Once you’ve got your creamy coconut butter in hand, pour it into a bowl along with melted honey, beet juice and rose water. Add 1 tbs of hot water to help make the mixture even smoother. Spoon this mixture into your mold and put in freezer until it hardens. Allow it to come to room temp and then drizzle some chocolate on top!
I think these little treats are perfect for Valentine’s Day (since ya know, they smell like roses and are bright pink…). I’ve saved the ingredients used to make these treats onto Luvocracy. If you haven’t heard of this website, it’s actually pretty awesome. When you find a product online that you want to save, you can ‘luv’ it and it’ll save it to a collection. Luvocracy will search the web to find you the lowest price of the item you’ve saved. See?Brilliant, right? It’s online window shopping… and I’m just a little bit addicted. You can save your shopping list in one place and buy directly through Luvocracy. They have a 30-day return policy so if you change your mind, no problem. Here’s a link to the App and if you sign up now, you’ll also get $10 off your first purchase! Here are a few of my collections:
My current favorite board is the “gifts for the gluten-free foodie” collection. I certainly wouldn’t mind if the husband wanted to buy me something off there for my Vday gift.
Regardless, at least I know I’ll be getting chocolate + roses this year… in the form of these sweet little heart shaped treats.

- ½ cup Coconut Butter
- 1 tbs Organic Raw Honey, adjust to taste
- 1 tbs beet juice
- ½ tsp Rose Water, adjust to taste
- 1 tbs hot water
- optional: enjoy life chocolate chips or other chocolate for drizzling on top!
- If coconut butter is hard, melt it in a hot water bath by placing the jar (lid removed) in a saucepan filled with water.
- Once creamy, pour the coconut butter into a bowl along with the honey, beet juice, rose water and hot water.
- Mix until well blended (taste and add a little more rose water if you'd like) and place into a mold.
- Freeze until solid - about 45 minutes.
- Allow the fudge to come to room temp, melt some chocolate and drizzle on top!
Rose water is very strong - so a little will go a long way. Start with less and add more :)
Tip: I always keep a little beet juice in my freezer. You never know when you might need some natural food coloring.
