Chocolate Covered Cherry Brownie Truffles
Sweet chocolate cherry truffles made with boxed brownie mix, cherry pie filling, and dark chocolate.
Truth: Valentine’s Day is all about the chocolate.
Okay, so maybe it has a little to do with romance and love, but I’m betting you’re more interested in the chocolate.
Or is it jewelry?
I’m hoping you’re more interested in the chocolate, because I made you chocolate covered cherry brownie truffles. It’s a truffle. It’s a brownie. It’s both!
You won’t believe how easy these truffles are to make. Confession: I used the help of boxed brownie mix and canned cherry pie filling.
Sometimes life calls for a bit of cheating.
The brownies come together in one bowl. You don’t even need a mixer; a simple rubber spatula will work just fine. You’ll only need 4 ingredients to make the brownies: 1 box of brownie mix, 1 cup of cherry pie filling, 1 egg, and 1/4 teaspoon almond extract. Throw it all in a bowl and stir until combined. Bake for 25-28 minutes. Easy, right?
After the brownies cool completely, use a fork to break up and fluff the mixture. Roll the mixture into 1-inch balls and chill in the freezer for 15 minutes. Dip the balls in melted chocolate and add some festive sprinkles. Viola, truffles.
Try your darndest not to eat all of the truffles before gifting them to your sweetie. This task requires great strength and a ton of willpower, both of which I don’t have, which is why Squirrel only ended up with 5 truffles.
It’s the thought that counts.
These truffles are for the ultimate chocolate lover. They’re rich, extra chocolate-y, and extremely decadent. The soft brownie mixture is dipped in velvety smooth dark chocolate for an extra boost of chocolate. The hard outer shell cracks open to a gooey center full of red cherries. They’ll cause your heart to race in excitement.
