Temperatures have dropped and evenings spent curled up in front of the fire are now the norm. For today's blog post we have a quick recipe for a delicious evening indulgence: red wine hot chocolate.
All else that's required is a cozy fireplace.
Red Wine Hot Chocolate
2 Cups 2% or whole milk or milk substitute of your choice (we recommend almond or soy, as these froth up the most!)
1/2 dark chocolate chips or a dark chocolate bar finely chopped
1 cup to 1 1/3 cup of red wine (use a fuller body wine, like a Cabernet or a Syrah)
Heat the milk in a saucepan over medium heat. Do not let it boil. Once the milk steams add the chocolate and stir until thoroughly combined. Stir in red wine to taste. Remove from heat and pour into mugs. Garnish with marshmallows and/or whipped cream.
