I referred to these in a post as Raspberry Wine Truffles, because I had used raspberry wine. I've also used black cherry. So the name is up to the wine you use. You can also make White Wine Truffles by using white instead of red. These DO improve with age. At least a few weeks of aging and the flavor is so good.

- 1Heat the chocolate chips and honey in a 3 qt.
- 2saucepan on low heat, and stir constantly until chocolate is melted.
- 3Remove from the heat.
- 4Stir in wafers, nuts and wine.
- 5Shape mixture into 1 inch balls and roll in sugar. An easy way to do this: Put your sugar (or cocoa if you are ever doing truffles that are rolled in cocoa)in a shallow pan with sides, then add some rolled truffles, and just kind of shake the pan gently back and forth, and from side to side. They roll around and coat themselves.
- 6Store truffles in tightly covered cookie jar or metal can.
- 7Let stand for several days to blend the flavors.
- 8Flavor improves with age up to 4 weeks.
- 9You can also do this with white wine: Omit the chocolate and do not heat the honey.
- 10Use dry white wine instead of the red.
- 11Mix all ingredients except sugar.
- 12Continue to shape balls and roll in sugar.
- 13This way makes 2 1/2 dozen truffles.
