Chocolate Wine Balls Recipe


3 1/4 cups crushed vanilla wafers
3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tablespoons corn syrup
1/2 cup full-bodied red wine (Cabernet Sauvignon, Cotes du Rhone, Zinfandel, Shiraz or Barolo)
1 cup red decorator sugar


In a large bowl, combine the vanilla wafers, confectioners’ sugar, cocoa powder, corn syrup and red wine. Mix with a sturdy spoon or your hands until it becomes a uniform dough. Shape into 1 inch balls and roll in red decorator sugar. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator. Allow to come to room temperature before serving.
