Cherry Truffles

This recipe is fantastic! It was easy to both prep and make; it involves absolutely no baking. Start to finish I was done in about 15 minutes.

Chocolate Cherry Truffles

1/4 Cup dried cherries
1/4 Cup + 2 TBSP old fashioned oats
1 1/2 TBSP sugar/fat free hot fudge
1 TBSP + 2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
Small cupcake papers

Using a food processor, finely chop the dried cherries. In a mixing bowl combine the dried cherries, oats, hot fudge, and 1 TBSP cocoa powder. Mix the ingredients together.

Place the 2 tsp cocoa powder into a separate dish. Scoop out 1 TBSP of the mixture and form into a small ball, roll each ball in the cocoa powder until it is well coated. Place in a small cupcake paper.  Repeat until you have used all of your mixture.

**Recipe only makes 6 truffles so I doubled it.**
**Make sure to shake off the excess cocoa powder from the truffles so they aren't bitter**
