Strawberry Sparkling Wine &Chilli White Chocolate Truffles

The last evening while sipping a little of the strawberry sparkling wine, I had the idea to prepare some truffles. I have never made any myself, it always seemed like a huge mountain and I did not dare to start climbing. I do not know if the glass of wine helped a bit or simply I was eager enough to prepare my first ever white truffles. Anyway I do not drink alcohol often, maybe once in a while some good red wine with some nice dish or a bier on a concert but defintely it is not my cup of tea. Anyway back to the chocolate. I have a huge stock of white chocolate since the Opera Cake DB Challenge, so I thought it is okay even if I screw it up. Surprisingly my trial was a success. I would not say they are perfect but okay and yummy. I did not dare to coat them with time.

80 g butter
80 g powder sugar
325 g white chocolate
100 ml strawberry sparkling wine (or any other)

dried chilli flakes
powder sugar and cocoa for coating

Whisk butter and powder sugar with a mixer until frothy while melting chocolate over steam.
Stir in molten chocolate with the help of the mixer. Add wine and chilli flakes and mix until it gets thick enough to inject small portions on a baking sheet. Let it cool for some hours. After form balls and coat with powder sugar and cocoa.
