Truffles

I know there has been heaps of threads re making these, but I had one today and it was a wee ball of chocolate bliss! . It had wee bits of what looked and tasted like cherry? , and raisins? , Does this ring a bell to anyone, I esp loved the cherry flavour. Has anyone made these and what did you use?

Like a Black forest type?

Maybe they blitzed up black forest tim tams? Added some type of cherry liquer?

mmm, we have been debating this at work today! , I might try making them with the tim tams, if I was going to try making them with black forest choc, would I just grate it?

Today I made Truffles using 2 pkts Coc Mint Slices munched up in the kitchen whizz with 125g cream cheese mixed thru. Rolled into balls, covered with Choc Hail, chilled... ... divine! ! Everyone at work loved them. Try the same with Black Forest Tim Tams perhaps... ... . .
