Ingredients
Instructions
  1. In a high speed blender add cherries, 1 cup of coconut oil, and coconut syrup. Blend until all is smooth.
  2. Pour the cherry filling into a bowl, and put in the freezer for about 5 -10 minutes, until the mixture hardens.
  3. Take the bowl out of the freezer. Using a cookie scoop, make small balls of the cherry filling, and add them to a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Place them back in the freezer for few minutes until they are firm and not coming apart. Meanwhile, add the chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons of coconut oil to a glass bowl. Melt in the microwave for a couple of minutes or over the stove.
  5. For the stove method, set the bowl in a saucepan filled halfway with water. The bowl does not need to touch the bottom of the pan, and the water doesn’t need to get in the bowl with the chocolate chips.
  6. Over low to medium heat, heat the water in the saucepan. With a silicone or wooden spatula, stir the chocolate chips until they become soft and melted.
  7. Take the cherry filling balls out of the freezer. Roll each one through the melted chocolate and add them back on the cookie sheet.
  8. Put the truffles back in the freezer, until the chocolate is firm and hard, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  9. Keep in the fridge or freezer until serving.
