These Red Wine Chocolate Truffles are rich, creamy and the perfect afternoon or evening snack. They are dairy and sugar free, can be made vegan if using a vegan chocolate. You only need three ingredients to make them, and they are really easy to make.
Two of my all time favorite thing combined in one bite. I mean, who doesn’t love chocolate? And how doesn’t love a good wine? I sure do. Preferably accompanied by each other. My favorite part of the evening is when you have some red wine left, you pull out that good quality dark chocolate and go and sit yourself down in the coach. That is truly the perfect ending of a nice evening for me. So naturally I had to combine my love for chocolate and wine in one delicious bite and made these red wine chocolate truffles. They are rich, they are creamy and have a delicate hint of red wine in them. I chose to cover half of mine in melted chocolate and half in cacao powder. Just to have some variety.
Some tips for making these chocolate truffles:
- Use a full bodied wine to really taste the red wine
- Depending on how soft or hard you prefer your truffles adjust the amount of wine (between 1 and 1 1/2 dl)
- Use a melon baller to scoop the truffles
- Store them in the fridge and take out 10 minutes before serving
- These chocolate truffles are a really great present to give away during holiday season
