Is food the way to your loves heart? After the perfect (and quick) Valentine’s Day gift? These blissful cherry truffles make the perfect treat, any day of the year! Spoil your loved one with not only something super tasty, but also filled with goodness.

The tart cherries in this recipe help to balance the sweetness of the dates, making it an ideal after dinner dessert. Tart cherries contain tryptophan and melatonin, both of which are essential for getting a restful nights sleep. An added herb, cordyceps, was snuck in as it is traditionally said to help with energy, stress levels and libido.

Tip: These tasty little truffles become extra indulgent after being kept in the freezer prior to eating as it creates a lovely, chewy texture to them.
