What You'll Need:
1⁄4 cup dried cherries
1⁄4 cup + 2 tablespoons old-fashioned oats
11⁄2 tablespoons sugar-free, fat-free hot fudge
1 tablespoon + 2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
Place the cherries in the bowl of a mini food processor fitted with a chopping blade. Process until very finely chopped and sticking together. With a spatula, transfer the cherries to a medium mixing bowl. Add the oats, hot fudge, and 1 tablespoon of the cocoa powder. Using your hands or an electric mixer fitted with beaters, mix well. Spoon the remaining 2 teaspoons cocoa powder into a small shallow bowl. Working quickly so the fudge does not melt, divide the mixture into six equal parts (about 1 tablespoon each). Carefully form each into a ball. Roll each ball in the cocoa powder until evenly coated. When all of the balls have been coated with the cocoa, place in a sieve and carefully bump the side of the sieve with the palm of your hand repeatedly to shake off excess cocoa powder (if there is too much cocoa on the outsides, the first bite will be bitter). Serve immediately or refrigerate in a resealable plastic container lined with waxed paper for up to 1 week.
