Plus, extra ganache makes the most indulgent chocolate Cherry Bakewell truffles.

This new Divine bar has chewy sour cherries, crunchy almonds and a hint of amaretto flavouring all encased in rich dark 60% chocolate.


For the Cookie Cups:

  • 120g smooth almond or cashew butter
  • 60ml maple syrup 2 tbsp melted coconut oil ½ tsp vanilla essence ½ tsp almond essence
  • 125g oat flour 50g ground almonds
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
  • A pinch of salt
  • 40g Dark Chocolate Bakewell with Cherry and Almond, chopped small

For the Filling:

  • 8 tsp cherry jam
  • 100g Cherry Bakewell Dark Chocolate, chopped very small
  • 150g coconut cream (from one tin of full-fat coconut milk)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

To Serve:

  • Whipped coconut or dairy-free cream or thick yoghurt
  • Fresh cherries
  • Extra Cherry Bakewell Dark Chocolate, chopped


  • Step 1 The day before: chill the tin of coconut milk for the filling. Have a silicone cupcake/muffin mould, or line a metal tray with cases
  • Step 2 For the cookie dough: mix together the almond butter, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla and almond essence until smooth. Now add in the oat flour, ground almonds, coconut flour and salt and stir to a sticky dough. Fold in the chocolate
  • Step 3 Divide the mix into 8 pieces, roll into balls and place inside the muffin holes/cases. Press down and shape into cups. Chill in the fridge while you make the filling
  • Step 4 Add the chopped chocolate into a bowl. Scoop the solid cream part from the tin of coconut milk and warm up until just melted (in a saucepan or the microwave) and before it bubbles. Pour this over the chocolate and leave for 5 minutes. Now add in the maple syrup and whisk until glossy
  • Step 5 Remove the cups from the fridge and place a spoon of jam in each cup. Now pour over the ganache to the top of the cookie dough cups and return to the fridge for 2 hours or overnight, until set firm. Pour any leftover ganache into a shallow dish and put in the fridge to set into truffles
  • Step 6 When ready to serve: remove the cups from the trays and pipe or spoon over the cream. Add on a cherry and some extra chocolate and enjoy straight away. Keep leftovers in the fridge for 1 week or in the freezer for 1 month (allow them to defrost before eating)
  • Step 7 To make truffles: once the ganache has set, use a spoon to scoop some of the mix and work quickly to shape into balls. Roll in a shallow bowl of cocoa powder and repeat to use up all the ganache.

These will keep for 1 week in a sealed container in the fridge
