When you make these truffles, you will be using chocolate fudge brownies. You will be forming the truffle part of the dessert by making the chocolate fudge brownies into crumbs and then turn it into truffles. Using a brownie mix makes it easier to make the brownies and will save you time. You can certainly make your own brownies if you prefer.

While using a brownie mix as the base for your truffles creates even more chocolate and richer taste than cake alone. However, if you only have chocolate cake or prefer cake to brownies it can be used. You can also use other flavored cake mixes if you like. While the chocolate and cherries go together perfectly, you can feel free to experiment.

Giving Crown Royal Cherry Brownies Balls as Gifts

Truffles always make a nice gift. Who doesn’t love a chocolate ball of decadence? If you want to make these Cherry Brownies Balls as a gift, you will want to wrap them in a pretty cellophane paper or store them in a decorative box with wax paper. The wax paper protects the brownie balls while preventing the brownies form coming into contact with the box.

Another option to present these truffles as gifts is to use pretty treat baggies. Available in most cake decorating sections, you can find beautiful decoratives bags designed especially for sweet treat gifts like these.

If you are giving these as a present, make sure that the receiver knows there is alcohol in the cherries, in case this is an issue for them.

Is There Alcohol in the Best Truffles Recipe?

For these truffles, the cherries are soaked in Crown Royal, which is popular whiskey. While baking desserts with alcohol in them will often cook out the alcohol and leave the flavor behind, that is not the case with this recipe. The cherries are not baked after they are soaked. The brownies that form the truffles are baked before using. This means that the alcohol that the cherries soaked up is still in the truffles.
