so I spent 23 years of my life avoiding the entire Bachelor franchise…until now. Now I’m full-on addicted and it might be my favorite show on TV. I literally live for Tuesdays (because I watch on Hulu and have to wait for Tuesday.)
I was a huge Tammy fan, but since she left I’ve just been waiting for this season to hurry up and end so we can get on to The Bachelorette (which is my favorite version of the show.)I have a strong feeling on how this season is going to end for Pete, but I’m not going to spoil it for those of you who are trying to avoid everyone’s “predictions.” Instead, let’s talk about food.

Speaking of which, how do people on this show eat? They don’t eat the date food, so when do they eat? Do they just eat like, chips and stuff in the mansion? I’d never be able to go on this show unless they sent me a full meal plan (with snacks.)

Thankfully I have full control over the snack situation for my own viewing parties. Thus, these red wine chocolate truffles. Because everyone needs some delicious dairy-free truffles in their lives for occasions such as these.

 

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
