Blueberry preserves and dried strawberries give Double Berry Truffles a vibrant burst of berry flavor, as well as a beautiful red, white, and blue color scheme. These taste a lot like blueberry cheesecake! You can omit the blue food coloring (especially if you want to avoid having a blue mouth for the rest of the day!) but be aware that the truffle filling will be a dull purple-gray without any added coloring.

I think the freeze-dried strawberries and blueberries on top give the truffles a wonderful crunchy texture, but if you can't find them, any dried berries or red and blue sprinkles will work nicely. I usually find my freeze-dried berries at Trader Joe's markets, and they are also available online.

Store Double Berry Truffles in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
