Dark Chocolate Red Wine Truffles

Dark Chocolate Red Wine Truffles created by Jonathan Melendez

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!

    Taste amazing! My wife is raving. The only problem I had was with the cocoa powder absorbing in to the truffle part / essentially disappeared! Any suggestions for that? Seems it may be because they are not cold enough, but I refrigerated overnight.
