If you prefer you can also use Greek yogurt. I used coconut because I had made my own and wanted to add to the cherry ripeness of the truffle. I also made the coconut powder by processing desiccated coconut in my thermomix. You can just use desiccated coconut as it is too.

Ingredients
  • 200g dark chocolate
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon coconut yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon liqueur (I used coconut rum but any will do)
  • A jar of amarena cherries
  • Cocoa powder for dusting
  • Powdered coconut
Instructions
  1. Place chocolate into a heatproof bowl and place over saucepan of simmering water to melt.
  2. Meanwhile in a small jug mix together egg yolks, yogurt and liqueur.
  3. Remove chocolate from the heat and add egg yolk mixture, stir until nice and smooth.
  4. Cover and place into fridge until mixture is cooled and firm.
  5. Drain cherries. Place a cherry inside a teaspoon full of chocolate and roll in hands to cover and form a ball.
  6. Toss into coconut powder or cocoa to cover. Repeat process for remainder of mixture.
  7. Place in the fridge.
  8. I find these will keep for up to 5 days.
