    Pomtini's Note:

    PURE HEAVEN. That's all you really need to know. I suggest using a metal cookie scoop to form the truffles. I tried a melon baller, tablespoon, and plastic cookie scoop and they were all somewhat difficult to use. Coat your hands in the cocoa powder before hand rolling the truffles. I suggest making these at least a day before eating so that the wine flavor intensifies. Best consumed on day three for maximum wine flavor. You should be able to keep them for a week but they never last that long!

      The trick to these is making sure they are chilled really really well, maybe even a bit of time in the freezer, and using a melon baller. All truffles seem to melt as soon as they have any contact with your hand. So keep them chilled/frozen and try not to touch them any more than you have to. Having said that, red wine in chocolate is a revelation. Heaven!

      The flavor was not great, and as another reviewer mentioned below - impossible to roll into a ball. Texture was crumbly. Would never make again.
