Wine and Chocolate! Yummmmmmm! Two things that can never, ever go wrong. And to that mix if we add hot chocolate, which has to be the most sought-after comfort drink in the world, you have magic!
I have to tell you, there is something deliciously exciting about pouring wine into hot chocolate. It’s a heady mix of exciting, forbidden things. Yes, I’m still talking about food 😉 !and once we made the drink that was exactly what it was, heady, exciting, chocolatey indulgence.
And oh! I have to, have to mention this blue board. Isn’t it the stuff of dreams! I absolutely love it!! Thanks Richa for inviting me over and letting my food come alive against that gorgeous blue tint… This is a delightfully simple recipe to make, so do test it out and let me know how it goes! I love the bitter aftertaste of dark chocolate, so I chose the dark variety (yes, I love the edgy things :D). But if you prefer the milder tones of milk chocolate, use that in your recipe, or you could even try a mix of the two.
- Dark Chocolate Chunks 1/2 cup
- Milk 1 1/2 cups
- Red Wine 1/2 cup
- Cinnamon pinch
- Melt chocolate in the microwave for 1 minute till the chocolate chunks are fully dissolved. Keep an eye on this as the chocolate could burn if you keep it for longer.
- Heat milk. Add the melted chocolate to this. Let the milk boil. Make sure that you stir in the chocolate well to avoid clumps forming.
- Now add the red wine.
