As long as you choose the type of chocolate and wine well.
Cocoa, like wine has fruity aromas and is a powerful antioxidant. Both provide minerals, are a source of protein, contain tannins, are recommended to be consumed daily by doctors (rightly so) and both have a strong antidepressant power.
The recipe with which we are going to delight combines both ingredients in a different way, we will learn how to make truffles with red wine.
We will need these ingredients:
1 Bottle of Chain Hole Cabernet
350gr Pure chocolate 75% cocoa
½ cup of milk cream

It is essential to take into account that the wine is the same or a little sweeter than the chocolate that accompanies it, if this does not happen we will notice more bitterness which will cause its quality to decrease.
