V-Day for me. . . D-day for the husbandface. . . . :(

My Husband hates Valentines Day. I write this knowing full well he won't care that I share his feelings with you. . . He would declare it from the mountain tops if you let him! His reasons are sincere though. He treats me like a princess everyday and feels we shouldn't have to have just one day out of the year to do it. It's commercial, It's not genuine and so forth. . . . :/ Myself on the other hand love this day! Chocloate, Champagne, chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate. He doesn't know it yet, unless he reads this blog but I plan to make myself him these delightful morsels. Queen Martha's Chocolate-Champagne truffles. Have a lovey dovey day friends. Let me know if you try this recipe and how it turns out!

Ingredients Makes about 3 dozen
1/2 cup heavy cream
8 ounces semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup plus 1 Tablespoon Champagne
1 tablespoon Cognac
Coarse sanding sugar, for rolling
Bring the cream to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Immediately pour hot cream over the chocolate in a medium bowl; stir until smooth. Stir in the Champagne and Cognac. Refrigerate until chocolate mixture is firm enough to roll into balls, about 1 hour.
Using a small melon baller or ice-cream scoop, form 1-inch balls. Roll each ball in coarse sanding sugar, and transfer to rimmed baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate truffles at least 30 minutes or up to 3 days before serving.
