Amarena Cherry Filled Chocolate Truffles

Ingredients

For the Truffles:

  • 8 ounces good quality dark chocolate, chopped. You can also use semisweet chocolate chips if that’s all you have.
  • 0.5 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 8oz jar Amarena Cherries, drained and put into a bowl. See below for LINK.
  • unsweetened cocoa powder, for rolling
  • Optional: chopped Pistachio’s for rolling, you can also use any other chopped nuts or sprinkles. See below for LINK.

Directions

Get the Amarena and the Chopped Pistacchio HERE!

Place the chopped chocolate in a small mixing bowl.

Heat the heavy cream on the stove until simmering. You can also use your microwave.

Pour the cream over the chocolate and let stand for 1 minute.

Whisk the mixture until smooth.

Pour the mixture into a shallow dish and cover with plastic wrap.

Refrigerate for 1 hour until chocolate is firm.

Using a tablespoon, roll the chocolate out into balls.
*This will get your hands dirty!

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.

Place the truffles on a tray and refrigerate until firm, about 20-30 minutes.

I like to serve them from the fridge, but they can easily be served at room temperature.
