It’s just about time to start posting fall inspired recipes and then umm, that season that follows fall.
Let’s not talk about that yet.
Let’s talk about cherry chips, coconut, chocolate and all the goodness they can produce.
I’m usually not a huge fan of cherry flavored stuff – I know, I’m weird. But if you’ve been reading this blog for any amount of time, you know that I love anything that smells, tastes, or resembles coconut.
Except coconut water, gross.
My point is, even if you’re not a huge cherry fan - you might think about giving these a shot. If you like coconut, this is a no-brainer.
My first impression upon biting into these truffles was bam - cherry! Followed quickly by coconut, chocolate, and all their yummy goodness. I had to keep testing though to make sure I really enjoyed them as much as I thought… 5 coco bonbons later…
I’ll let you guess.

· Decorative sprinkles
1. In a medium bowl, combine the butter, corn syrup, vanilla extract and salt.
2. Add powdered sugar; mix well.
3. Melt cherry chips in a microwaveable bowl. Melt in 30 second increments. Stir into mixture until well blended.
4. Add coconut, kneading mixture until thoroughly combined.
5. On a wax paper lined baking sheet, roll mixture into 1-inch sized balls. Place in the fridge for about 10 minutes to let them firm up a bit.
