  1. Get the Amarena and the Chopped Pistacchio HERE!
  2. Place the chopped chocolate in a small mixing bowl.
  3. Heat the heavy cream on the stove until simmering. You can also use your microwave.
  4. Pour the cream over the chocolate and let stand for 1 minute.
  5. Whisk the mixture until smooth.
  6. Pour the mixture into a shallow dish and cover with plastic wrap.
  7. Refrigerate for 1 hour until chocolate is firm.
  8. Using a tablespoon, roll the chocolate out into balls.
    *This will get your hands dirty!
  9. Using your finger make a small hole in the truffle and insert the amarena Cherry. Re-roll the truffle between your hands and roll them in the toppings.
  10. Place the truffles on a tray and refrigerate until firm, about 20-30 minutes.
  11. I like to serve them from the fridge, but they can easily be served at room temperature.

Recipe Notes


Cover tightly and store truffles at room temperature for 3-4 days or in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.


-if the chocolate seems too soft while rolling just pop it back in the refrigerator until firm again.
-If things get too messy, you can also wear rubber gloves while rolling the truffles. Coating your hands in cocoa powder can also help
