Step 1

In a medium saucepan over medium high heat, combine butter and cream. Bring to the boil and remove from heat. Stir in 100g chopped chocolate and Black Cherry flavouring; continue stirring until smooth. Pour truffle mixture into a shallow baking dish. Chill until firm, about 2 hours.

Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. Shape chilled truffle mixture with a teaspoon or melon baller into small balls. Place on prepared baking tray. Chill until firm, about 30 minutes.

In the top of a double boiler over lightly simmering water, melt remaining 100g chocolate with the oil, stirring until smooth. Cool to lukewarm.

Drop truffles, one at a time, into melted chocolate mixture. Using 2 forks, lift truffles out of the chocolate, allowing any excess chocolate to drip back into the pan before transferring back onto baking tray. Chill until set.
