Chocolate Pistacchio Truffles

Sweet and delicious, homemade chocolate truffles made with toasted, finely chopped pistachios and heavy cream paired with our savory, Hand on Heart Cabernet Sauvignon!

Chocolate Pistacchio Truffles


  • 8 ounces 60 percent chocolate
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • For coating:
  • 1 cup toasted and finely chopped pistachios


Finely chop the chocolate — a serrated knife will do this quickly and efficiently. Transfer the chocolate to a medium bowl.

Microwave the cream on high in an oven-safe cup or bowl until hot but not boiling, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Alternatively, heat the cream over low heat in a small saucepan until steaming. Pour the hot cream over the chopped chocolate and set aside for 5 minutes. Whisk the cream and chocolate together until smooth and shiny.

Pour the ganache into a shallow pan or baking dish, such as an 8- by 8-inch baking dish. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.

Use a tablespoon to portion the ganache into 1-ounce portions (about 2 tablespoons each). Roll the balls between gloved hands until smooth and place on a plate. Refrigerate for a few minutes while preparing the coatings.

For best results, pour the coatings into small dishes or bowls. Dip and roll the truffles in the coatings. These truffles keep best in the refrigerator. Remove from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before serving.

Hand on Heart - Cabernet Sauvignon

pairs well with

Cabernet Sauvignon

Velvety notes of dark cherry and toasted vanilla meet black currant in our vibrant Cabernet Sauvignon. With the alcohol removed, fresh herbs round out this beautifully balanced wine.

Non-alcoholic wine that tastes so real you still need to be 21 to enter.
