When it comes to cosy Friday nights spent curled up on the sofa, it’s traditional to sip on a steamy mug of hot chocolate, or perhaps enjoy a nice glass of wine with a bar of milky choc to nibble on the side.
“This drink is rich and more fit for sipping out of a small glass than gulping from a mug”
But what if you could combine the two?
That’s right we’re talking about wine infused hot chocolate. It’s a thing, it’s here, and it looks terrific.
Crafted by food blogger Kylie Michell, of immaeatthat.com, the red wine hot chocolate recipe currently sending the Internet into meltdown is super easy to make, with results that are mouthwatering to say the least.
Describing the recipe, Kylie writes, “It seemed like a good idea to me. But holy smokes it was RICH. I never understand when someone says a chocolatey dessert (i.e. fudge) is too rich… But this drink is rich and more fit for sipping out of a small glass than gulping from a mug.”
Rich, liquidy chocolate mixed with mulled wine? Sounds good to us!
Heating one and half cups of milk with a third of a cup of dark chocolate chunks, Kylie then mixes in one cup of red wine once the chocolate has all melted into the milk. And that’s it—it’s so easy to make, it’ll take you mere minutes.
The recipe has already sparked a growing trend on Instagram of course, with plenty of wine and hot chocolate lovers sharing their own snaps of the winter treat, too.
