For the coating:
Combine cream and corn syrup in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Heat until it comes to a full boil. Remove from heat and immediately pour over hot chocolate and butter. Let is sit for 1 minute. With a rubber spatula, gently stir in small circular motions until chocolate mixture is fully melted, aboput 2 minutes. Add the rose flower water and stir to combine.
Allow the ganache to cool at room temperature until firm, at least 4 hours. You could also put it in the refrigerator for about 2 hours. (This worked for me.)
Once firm, form the ganache into small 1-inch balls. The easiest way to do this is to use a melon baller or small ice cream scoop. You may have to roll them a bit with your hands. It will be very messy. If the balls get too soft, put them back in the fridge for a while, until they firm up again.
To coat the truffles:
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place chocolate in a heatproof bowl and microwave for 1 minute. Wait a few seconds and stir. If it isn’t completely melted, microwave it again for 10 seconds. Repeat until the chocolate is all melted. Yard’s recipe says to melt the chocolate in a bouble boiler, but I have always had good results by using the microwave. Just be careful not to overdo it. Put the cocoa powder into a small bowl.
Drop each ganache ball into the melted chocolate, one at a time, and roll until fully coated. I used a toothpick for this. Tap off the excess and toss into the cocoa powder to coat. Transfer each truffle to the baking sheet to harden. I put my ganache balls in the freezer for about 30 minutes before I coated them to discourage melting. This seemed to help.
Makes about 2 dozen 1-inch truffles.
