J.M. Hirsch, author of the cookbook "High Flavor, Low Labor," shares his sinfully rich, incredibly easy Chocolate Cherry Truffles recipe with Mr. Food and his viewers. Yes, you can make your own homemade truffles and impress your gang anytime.

What You'll Need

  • 14 ounces dark chocolate, broken into small pieces OR 2-1/3 cups dark chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 pinch Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder

What to Do

  1. In a medium saucepan, melt chocolate and heavy cream over medium heat until smooth, stirring constantly. Stir in cherries, vinegar, and salt; mix well.
  2. Pour chocolate mixture into an 8” x 8” baking pan and refrigerate about 2 hours, or until set.
  3. Place cocoa powder in a bowl. Using a melon baller or sturdy measuring spoon, scoop 1 tablespoon of chocolate mixture. Roll into a smooth ball between your palms; chocolate will be messy. Place in cocoa powder and roll ball until evenly coated; repeat until all chocolate mixture is used. Refrigerate truffles until ready to serve.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I am not a diabetic, but I have Celiac and my granddaughter has Celiac and she is a diabetic, so I need to bake and cook things that are gluten free and for diabetics but that does not limit me to look on this sight. Some times you can fix up a recipe to your needs.So just because I have celiac and my granddaughter has both this will not stop me from looking on this sight.

Thanks for asking for nutritional info., Joyce. You're in luck! If you search "diabetes" in the search box at the top right of your screen, you'll find a bunch of recipes here with nutritional analysis courtesy of the American Diabetes Association. We also have 3 cookbooks published by the ADA that are available here on our site. Every recipe in those books includes a nutritional analysis. Click on "Shop" at the top left of your screen to find those.

How about adding nuritional values to your recipes. Being a diabetic it is important for me to know the amount of calories, carbs, fats, etc. in each recipe. Any help would be apprediated.

Why are you looking up candy recipes in regular food section? knowing u r diabetic ????Look in diabetic section for recipes with less sugar
