We’ve been making a lot of goodies around here lately! As always, I try to make desserts that are healthier and made with real food ingredients.
My daughter and I made these chocolate covered cherry truffles the other day. We both really love to snack on dried cherries and homemade chocolate chips so I thought it would be fun to make healthy chocolate covered cherries. I almost decided to make these the way I made my coconut covered raisins, but with chocolate added, but we decided to be a little more creative! We used dates, dried cherries and shredded coconut to make the truffles and coated them with melted chocolate. They turned out beautiful and tasted wonderful!
