I don’t know about you, but finding more ways to enjoy red wine is something that makes my ears perk up, and my eyes go wide.  For all these years, I’ve enjoyed a glass of red wine and a bite of dark chocolate in the evenings because they compliment each other so well. The chocolate brings out the flavors in the wine, and the wine brings a richness to the chocolate. So bringing the two together in melted and warmed drinking form, is definitely something everyone needs to try. It’s rich and creamy and a elegant finish to one’s night. Want to make this for a crowd? Duplicate this recipe for as many servings as you need, and toss it in a crockpot/slow cooker until melted, and set to warm to ladle and serve all night long.
