  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder


  • Coarsely chop the chocolate and place it into a medium-sized bowl.
  • Bring cream to a simmer in a saucepan, add butter, and stir until melted. Pour the heated cream over the chopped chocolate and stir with a spatula until the chocolate is melted. 
  • Add Cherrycream Pinot Noir and stir until wine is incorporated.
  • Pour into an 8″ x 8″ baking dish and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. 
  • Remove from refrigerator and use a metal cookie scoop to create each truffle. Coat your hands in cocoa powder and gently roll the chocolate until it forms a ball. Roll in the cocoa powder until covered.
