Hot Cross Truffles


This are simply spiced, fruity truffles with a cross on as an excuse to give this dish an Easter theme!  A nice alternative to Easter eggs……..who am I kidding, it’s chocolate therefore is delicious!

I liked the texture of the dried fruit within the truffles which gave them a nice bite.
