We all know chocolate and wine are match made in heaven. And I’m sure we all have heard about red wine brownies, or red wine chocolate cake, or red wine truffles. Right?

And honestly, red wine chocolate cake has been on my list of things to try for more than a few months now. But it always gets pushed back for one reason or another. (Hello, life with a toddler!)

Recently, as I opened a bottle of fine wine from a friend, I realized I could try red wine truffles. Way less hassle and minimal time investment! Yes, I can do it!

As my first trial run, I made the truffles with dark chocolate (semi-sweet, to be exact). It was good, rich and bold! But a bit crumbly (?) and on a dry side. It didn’t stop me from polishing it off in one day though. (I mean, wine and chocolate! Duh.)

I still wished for better truffles, you know. Smoother, sweeter, creamier. And then, light bulb moment came! Milk chocolate!

And you guys, they were amazing! Just the right amount of sweetness, noticeable notes of red wine, indulgent smooth texture. Granted, they’re not as creamy as my regular truffles. But they still ROCK!

If you happen to have an open bottle of red, do try this. OR why not just open a bottle? (Doesn’t take much convincing, does it?) 🙂

2-Ingredient Drunken Truffles

Yes, it’s possible! 2-ingredient red wine truffles are deliciously indulgent and boozy treat. The secret is in milk chocolate!

Yield: About 16 truffles

Ingredients:

  • 8oz (225gr) milk chocolate
  • ¼ cup (60ml) red wine
  • Cocoa powder for coating, optional

Directions:

  1. Chop the chocolate bar into small pieces and place in a microwave-safe flat dish. (I use glass 8×8-inch baking pan.)
  2. Melt the chocolate, according package directions. (I microwave mine for 1.5 minutes at 50% power, stir and microwave for additional 30 seconds at 50% power until it’s nice and smooth.)
  3. Stir in wine and mix until nice and smooth. Let set at room temperature for 1-2 hours.
  4. Using a small cookie scoop, form 1-inch balls. Refrigerate for about 5 minutes or so, and then roll to smooth out. If desired, roll the truffles in cocoa powder.
  5. Store the truffles in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
