You'll need just six ingredients: wine, honey, graham crackers, chocolate chips, walnuts, and powdered sugar. 

This holiday dessert recipe is no-bake (yes, please!). Once the ingredients are combined you're almost done.

The last step is to shape the mixture into balls and roll in powdered sugar. They'll be ready to enjoy or you can put them in an airtight container as a holiday gift and the flavor will only improve. 

The chef deserves a glass of wine for creating this decadent holiday dessert!


1/4 cup honey
1 cup dark chocolate chips 
2 1/2 cups finely crushed graham crackers (1.5 sleeves of crackers)
2 cups ground walnuts
1/3 cup Snow Farm Vineyard Crescent Bay Red
1/2 cup powdered sugar


Heat honey and chocolate chips in a 3-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly until chocolate is melted; remove from heat.
Put graham crackers in a large zip lock bag and crush them.
Stir in crushed cookies, walnuts, and wine. If you don't have crushed walnuts, put walnut pieces through a food processor first.
Shape into 1-inch balls; roll in powdered sugar. 

Store in a tightly covered container. Enjoy for up to 4 weeks as the flavor improves. We bet they won't last even a few days though!
