Chocolate-Wine Balls

Diane Hopson Smith


Adopted this today, obviously needs some tweeking. The wine was left out of the instructions. It has potential. I'll play with this recipe, add the wine to instruction, maybe even dip in white and dark chocolate coating and sprinkle with colorful candy sprinkles. I'll have it ready by the holidays, and I'll post a photo of end results.
