    ciao's Note:

    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.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    dozen t ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat the chocolate chips and honey in a 3 qt.
    2. 2
      saucepan on low heat, and stir constantly until chocolate is melted.
    3. 3
      Remove from the heat.
    4. 4
      Stir in wafers, nuts and wine.
    5. 5
      Shape 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.
    6. 6
      Store truffles in tightly covered cookie jar or metal can.
    7. 7
      Let stand for several days to blend the flavors.
    8. 8
      Flavor improves with age up to 4 weeks.
    9. 9
      You can also do this with white wine: Omit the chocolate and do not heat the honey.
    10. 10
      Use dry white wine instead of the red.
    11. 11
      Mix all ingredients except sugar.
    12. 12
      Continue to shape balls and roll in sugar.
    13. 13
      This way makes 2 1/2 dozen truffles.

      I made these as part of Christmas gifts (that get passed out at Thanksgiving) and everyone loved them. I used Cherry Wine (since they were going to MI). It was SO SO easy, I am making them again this weekend for more Christmas goodies. Thanks for a great recipe. Oh, also, I let them sit for about 3 weeks before we ate them.

      These were sooo easy to make, and they tasted great. They were a big hit over Christmas. You'll also never believe how little time it takes to make them. The wine flavour didn't really come through at all (even after two weeks of aging) so next time I may increase the amount of wine, or try to find one with stronger flavour. Or I may just flavour with raspberry (or another flavour) essence. All in all a great, easy, and quick recipe.

      This is so incredibly easy to make! It smells so good that you'd want to lick the bowl twice! I used Dark Chocolate. I didn't wait for my brother to review this because by the way it smells now and ..okay.. I tried a scrap from the mixing bowl, it will be TO-DIE-FOR in two weeks' time! Wish I could give it another 5*s! Thanks for posting this!!
