    I looooove black forest cake! These may have just gone to the top of the list of things off your site that I want to make 😀

    As nice as those gift bags sound I will enjoy the photos and stories much more. Bring on August!!

    I need to make another trip to Costco to buy some Medjool dates. Life is better when I have fresh dates in the fridge.

    You’ve given me that excited feeling in my tummy like I’m just about to go on holiday…. 🙂

    Oh yum! I and my daughter are always looking for gluten-free, dairy-free recipes. This one hits the mark, and so easy. Thank you.

    And have a wonderful, rich, chocolatey adventure in lands across the ocean.

    Ooh I haven’t had black forest anything for ever so long. Looking forward to your adventures in the days, weeks, months, years to come!

    I hope I’m safe in assuming your trusty MacBook Air will travel with you so that blogging on the road will occur so we can share vicariously in your adventure 🙂

    YUMMO Hannah, YUMMO!

    I am so excited for you… and it’s no surprise the out- pouring of support and couch-offers as you are just a little gem 🙂

    Dark chocolate and dried cherries… hello! [confession – i accidentally typed fried cherries at first. um, well, yes, how can i defy my subconscious?]

    I glad you’ve been buoyed by your readers’ responses. What an exciting time for you as you make your plans. These raw vegan truffles look delicious. I love the list of ingredients. The dried cherries would add great flavour. And they are all so perfectly round! xx

  10. Catherine

    Oh, yum! Your raw truffle recipes are some of my favourite things, I must say.

  11. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    OK I got very strange looks when I just said “Oh goody! More of Hannah’s balls!” 😛

  12. Sig

    Yum. I love how you chose to celebrate your celebration with balls.

    Man, I really need to get my head out of the gutter. Must be all that smut I’ve been reading lately (not including Game of Thrones).

    I made choc-PB coconut protein balls on the weekend and was so proud of myself – even Evs wanted more of my balls.

    (I think I’ve said it enough times in this comment.)

    Mmmmm, this version of your truffles is probably my favourite! I’m in love with cherries and chocolate 🙂


  14. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Better and better and better! I tell you, Hannah, your truffle balls are magical in their ability to keep on improving 🙂

  15. Gabby

    How genius you are adding the kirsch! I bet that these taste exactly like the cake 🙂

    I think vegan no-bake bites should be their own food group. That way I could eat them for every meal and no one would think I was weird 😉

  16. Johanna GGG

    Oh yum. Kirsch sounds very decadent! Though I guess in places where you are travel it might just be the way of life 🙂 That is the exciting thing about travel – to look at the world through other people’s eyes! Your post has reminded me that I twice decided to live overseas and postponed it before I finally did – makes me feel it is even more wonderful that you are heading into the great unknown

  17. Emma

    I would have to buy kirsch to make these…. or I could use fresh cherries (which I have!) and some other sort of liquor. Perhaps the dratted orange. Shhh, Hannah doesn’t need to know.

    Upped sticks! That’s a new one for me. It would be handy if you only had a few sticks to pick up, rather than a bunch of possessions to deal with. Ah well, you’ll be cartwheeling your way through the move:)

    Oh, I missed out on your announcement of your exciting future adventure. We left Madison last Friday to travel across the ocean to Germany, and there I’m sitting in the capital of the Blackforest, Freiburg, reading your recipe. I’m in my hometown. I’m actually a Blackforest girl. Thus I’m an expert, and I can only say that this recipe sounds super delicious, mouth watering. I would give you the honorary (is that an English word?) Blackforest citzenship!!!!

  19. Lyf

    Maybe I’m just hungry but this is your best ball recipe yet! Keep up with the regular blogging in NY, promise?

  20. Kath Lockett

    Sapphire just walked in and said “We have to make that. And hey, we already have ALL the ingredients.”


  21. Courtney Hosny

    Ahhh looking at this recipe is making my sweet-tooth grow stronger! Cheers!

  22. theresa

    No, *you* deserve a heel click.

    (Is this post a reference to how it takes balls to quit your job and jump into the unknown travel wonderland? If not, it should be.)

  23. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    Brilliant new flavor my dear! Wish I’d thought of it. Especially <3 the liqueur in there… 😉

  24. Marta @ What Should I Eat For Breakfast Today?

    Addition of kirsh is a great idea. And it’s vegan! My good friend is vegan and I always make a carrot cake for her as that’s the only vegan recipe I know for sweets. Thanks for this one!

  25. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    I will accept this offering of deliciousness. How did you know I like booze in my desserts?

  26. Iron Chef Shellie

    ok, gotta try these… delicious come here!

  27. Vien

    hehe I never liked blackforrest cakes but I’d absolutely have a couple of these!! 😀

  28. Daisy@Nevertoosweet

    I’m so glad you got so much support from everyone 🙂 it’s important to get support when you make a huge decision ~

    Ohh these look so healthy!!! FINALLY ANOTHER THING MY FRIEND CAN EAT 🙂 YAY! THanks for the recipe 😉

  29. Richa@HobbyandMore

    this is insane i tell ya.. insane!

  30. Heather @ Sweetly Raw

    Oooh these look decadent and delicious! I can just imagine that the cherries and kirsch take it to a new level!
