The only thing better than comfort food in the fall is snuggling up with a glass of red wine and a chocolatey snack after work. But why not put your two favorite indulgences together? Here making your worlds collide is the food blog Imma Eat That, with a red wine hot chocolate recipe. The simple but ingenious concoction has caught on like wildfire across the interwebs, further proving that there's no better combination than red wine and chocolate, especially around the holidays. Here's the simple recipe:
1 1/2 cup milk
1 cup red wine (we like Dark Horse's Big Red Blend)
1/3 cup dark chocolate chunks
Coconut whipped cream as garnish (optional)
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine milk and chocolate chips, whisking constantly until chocolate is melted into milk and you have a thick and creamy chocolate milk.
Pour in red wine and heat until everything is hot. Pour into two mugs or six to eight smaller glasses, and top with coconut whipped cream.
