Does anyone have any recipes that are packed with glazed cherries as I love them, I thought there may be a truffle recipe out there. Any ideas appreciated. TIA.

When I read the recipe on here for "bounty Bars', it occured to me that you could also make truffles similar to "cherry Ripe" bars which are full of cherries. Will bump the Bounty Bar recipe for you.

what kind of essence would you use,is there a cherry essence? these sound just what my hubby would like,so plan to make up a batch.Have brandy,but he's not into alcohol so was wondering which essence.Thanks

have a look at the different essences, Almond essence, I find, has about the same taste as cherry. Or see if you can get cherry juice , there is only 2tbs , to use.

also here is another , easier recipe that has no alcohol
