Rangoli are traditional drawings found in and around Indian homes during festive celebrations, such as this month’s Diwali, the Festival of Lights.
Typically made with rice flour, flowers and colorful paints, Rangoli are created to welcome good sprits. And these symbolic patterns serve as the inspiration for Le Rouge’s latest creation.
The 2015 Limited Edition Chocolate Rangoli features hand-decorated paisleys and flowers, which are crafted in dark chocolate and assembled to mimic a traditional Rangoli.
Choose two of your favorite flavors (Rose Infused, Masala Chai Infused, Matcha Green Tea Infused or Plain Dark Chocolate) before tempting your tastebuds with a delicious arrangement of chocolate discs (4 large paisleys, 1 large flower, 4 medium flowers, and 28 small paisleys).
If you’re picking up this order, you can add fresh “raspberry flowers” to the arrangement. Raspberry flowers are dark chocolate shells filled with raspberry ganache and decorated with fresh raspberry and almond slivers.
Those who would like the item shipped instead can request truffles.
Pricing: $21, plus shipping; extra for raspberry flowers or truffles
