Cherry Truffles

Thank you for your rating!

Dark chocolate truffles with pieces of dried sour cherries and flavoured with cherry liqueur, finished off with a dusting of cocoa powder.

Ingredients

  • 150ml double cream
  • 225g good quality dark chocolate, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp kirsch liqueur
  • 50g dried cherries, roughly chopped
  • Cocoa powder, for dusting

Instructions

  1. Heat cream in a medium sized saucepan over high heat until it just starts to boil. Remove from heat and pour over finely chopped chocolate placed in a heatproof bowl. Stir until all chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Mix in cherry liqueur and dried cherries.
  2. Cover bowl with clingfilm and chill in the fridge until set, a couple of hours or overnight.
  3. Remove from fridge. Scoop teaspoon size balls of mixture, then roll balls between both palms to round off. Roll quickly and lightly to avoid chocolate from melting. To finish, roll each ball in cocoa powder.
  4. Truffles keep for 1-2 weeks at room temperature or 2-3 weeks in the fridge.
