Tips for making these Red Wine Chocolate Truffles:
- Use a full-bodied red wine (merlot, cabernet, pinot, etc.)
- Use a good brand of dairy free chocolate. My favorite for all of my cooking is Hu, or Lily’s for a sugar-free options.
- I prefer to use a mellon baller to scoop the filling
Red Wine Chocolate Truffles
Paleo Red Wine Truffles AKA your new go-to snack for girls night that happens to be gluten and dairy free!
- 2/3 cup coconut cream
- 3 tbsp coconut oil
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup red wine
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1/3 cup coconut sugar
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
Heat coconut cream in a small saucepan over medium heat for 5-6 minutes. Stir in wine and coconut oil, then remove from heat and pour in the chocolate chips and sugar. Stir completely until chocolate is melted.
Allow mixture to sit in the freezer for about 1-2 hours, or until the chocolate is firm enough to roll into balls.
Once chocolate is firm, roll into small balls, or use a mellon baller or tablespoon to scoop into balls. Place on a parchment lined sheet.
Melt the chocolate in the microwave or in a small saucepan over low heat, making sure to stir and watch the chocolate so it does not burn.
Coat the balls in the melted chocolate by placing them in the bowl and then using a spoon to coat them and move them back to the parchment. Allow to chill for 10-15 minutes to harden chocolate before serving.
Store leftovers in the fridge/freezer.
