Chocolate Cherry Truffles
Total TimePrep: 1-1/2 hours + standing
I made these delicious truffles for the first time. I did not want to buy a whole bottle of Kirschwasser only to use a quarter cup so I used Asbach Uralt (German brandy) to soak the cherries. I also could not find cherry extract so I used vanilla. I left the mixture too long in the refrigerator and it got very hard. I used the microwave at 30 sec. interval and got it to soften up to make the balls. Worked great. And...are they good. They will make a nice gift
Very tasty and rich. I stored them in the refrigerator and they became my decadent treat with coffee in the evening after dinner. I admit to not sharing their location with the rest of my family...
never made HomeMade ChocolAtes Before...WayWayWay ToO Rich And Sweet For Me!! Bbbllleeeccchhh
Are these sweet enough? Shouldn't there be powdered sugar in the truffle part? Does the dark baking chocolate have any sugar?
For those wanting to make these alcohol-free, simply soak the cherries in warm water for about 10 minutes and drain. Likewise, if you can find cherry juice in your local grocery, soak the cherries in the amount/time called for in the recipe and drain.
What could I use in place of the brandy so the kids can have them?
scrumptious!!!!! easy and did i say scrumptious!
