Sometimes a stressful day calls for taking the wine down off the rack. Sometimes it calls for chocolate. And sometimes it calls for both.
This decadent recipe is perfect for unwinding on a cold. gloomy weekend — or makes for a great after meal drink for dinner guests.
Red Wine Hot Chocolate
1 1/2 cup milk (You can use regular cow’s milk or go dairy-free with almond, soy, coconut, hemp — whatever makes you happy)
1 cup red wine (your choice)
1/3 dark chocolate, roughly chopped (you can use chips too — but avoid opting for powder)
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add milk and chocolate. Whisk slowly until combined. Then pour in your wine and continue to stir until everything is nice and hot. That’s it! Simple. This recipe can fill about two large mugs, but the rich flavor is great for sipping so you can share it with up to six people if you opt for smaller portions.
