Cherry Pecan Truffles

I love dipping things in chocolate!  Any delicious ingredients that can be mixed together and dipped in chocolate to make truffles, I am there!

2 cups toasted & finely chopped pecans
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup water
3 tsp marshino cherry juice
1/4 cup finely chopped marshino cherries
1 tsp rum extract
2 cups dark chocolate chips
1 heaping Tbl shortening

Mix pecans, graham cracker crumbs, sugar, salt, water, cherry juice, cherries, and rum extract.  Scoop into 1″ balls and freeze.  In top of double boiler, melt chocolate and shortening.  Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silpat.  Dip frozen balls into melted chocolate, place on prepared baking sheet.  Let sit for 15 minutes or until firm.  Refrigerate to set up quickly.
