Yield: 12 - 18 Truffles
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 55 Minutes

Ingredients


• 8oz Bittersweet Chocolate
• 8oz Semisweet Chocolate
• 1/2 c Heavy Cream
• 1/2 c Benovia Pinot Noir
• 1 tsp Vanilla
• Cocoa Powder & Powdered Sugar for coating

Instructions


Chop chocolates into small pieces and place in heat proof bowl. Microwave on High for 60 seconds. Stir and microwave for 30 more seconds. (Be careful, the bowl can get hot!)

Gently heat the cream on the stove top until just bubbly. Pour into the chocolate mixture and whisk together. Add the wine & vanilla and whisk until smooth.

Pour into 9"x9" square pan, cover, and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Using two spoons or a 1" cookie scoop, drop balls of chocolate onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Refrigerate for 10 more minutes. Roll each ball of chocolate in your hands to roughly make it round. Roll in confectioners' sugar, cocoa powder, or both.

Truffles will keep refrigerated for weeks. Bring to room temperature before serving.
