Red Wine Hot Chocolate

Just in time for Valentine's Day: a new, rich chocolate treat to make and enjoy with someone you care about, or keep all the deliciousness for yourself.

Red Wine Hot Chocolate. 

I'll admit, at first this sounded a little strange, but this treat combines two of my favorite things so we thought we'd give it a whirl.

The ingredients were simple: 

  • 1/2 Bottle Red Wine (we used a red blend)
  • 4 Cups 2% Milk
  • 2/3 Cup Dark Chocolate Chunks or Melting Chocolate

All you need to do is combine the milk and chocolate chunks on the stove and whisk until the chocolate is completely melted. Add in your red wine and stir until the drink is warm. Pour in mugs and enjoy. That's it! Super simple.

But man, did it hit the spot. A rich drink that is warming and the perfect addition to a cold night. It had a great chocolate flavor with just a hint of taste from the red wine, nothing too overpowering.

This one is definitely a winner that we'll make again this chilly season.
