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.
- 2/3 cup semi sweet chocolate, chopped (or semi sweet chocolate chips)
- 2/3 cup red wine (we used merlot!)
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup half and half cream
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- Whipped cream for topping (optional)
- Chocolate shavings for topping (optional)
- Measuring Cups
- Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring constantly until chocolate is melted, and mixture is hot.
- Serve in a mason jar, wine glass, or mug. Optionally, top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
