Ingredients for Chocolate Cherry Truffles:
Cherries — You can use either frozen or fresh. I used fresh since they are in season now. We used organic cherries because the conventional cherries may be high in pesticides, and we like to stay away from those as much as we can.
Wildly Organic Coconut Syrup — I love this syrup because it tastes delicious and because it’s so healthy. It has a great caramel taste, and it is a great substitute for maple syrup or agave syrup. The cherry truffles taste so good with coconut syrup. I tend to use it more often than other sweeteners because of the quality and taste.
Dairy-Free Chocolate Chips — For the chocolate part of the cherry truffles, I melted some dairy free chocolate chips. The chocolate you pick matters; you want to be sure you love the chocolate you pick because it will give the overall taste to your truffles. You can also melt your favorite chocolate bar too.

Use one or two spoons to help you roll the cherry coconut balls in the melted chocolate.
