Red Wine Hot Chocolate
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2 servings
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chunks
  • 1 cup milk (I used 2%)
  • ½ cup red wine (Pinot Noir, Greneche, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon - I used a Pinot Noir)
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar (optional)
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  1. Add chocolate chunks, wine, milk and sugar (if using) to a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Stirring constantly, heat until chocolate chunks are completely melted and mixture is hot.
  2. Remove from heat and add vanilla and salt. Stir to combine.
  3. Pour into mugs and serve immediately*
* If using sugar, add along with chocolate, milk and wine. If you aren't sure about adding sugar, I suggest tasting it without first and then add if you'd like your beverage a bit sweeter.

**This drink is rich so you can serve red wine hot chocolate in 6-8 smaller cups instead.
