Hot chocolate is a wonderful winter treat. But you know what makes it absolutely perfect (for those of us who are over 21 years old)? Adding red wine, of course!
That's right: Red Wine Hot Chocolate is the winter drink you didn't know you needed... but do.
Santa needs it, too, by the way -- he told me. Good thing it's so easy to make.
To start, you want to choose a red wine that isn't too fancy or pricey -- this isn't the way to use a super expensive wine. That said, you also don't want to use a cheap wine either.
You want a red wine that's rich, fruity and bold that generally goes well with chocolate. I like using a Merlot or Shiraz. From there, the rest is simple. Check out the recipe below as a guide, but you can also wing this one. Add more chocolate if you like your hot chocolate super thick and rich, less if you want this to be more wine forward.

RED WINE HOT CHOCOLATE
Recipe by Stacie Billis of One Hungry Mama
To make about 4 cups
5 cups milk (or 3 cups milk and 2 cups heavy cream)
1/2 cup chopped sweetened dark chocolate or dark chocolate chips
3/4 cups red wine (see note above)
1. Add milk to a sauce pan set over medium heat and warm through.
2. Add chocolate and whisk until it melts, being sure never to bring the milk to a boil. If you have to, reduce the heat to medium low.
3. Once the chocolate has melted completely, add the wine and heat through. Again: You don't want to bring this to a boil or all of the alcohol will cook off. You just want to heat the whole mixture through and serve!
