Red Wine Hot Chocolate

I have another amazing hot chocolate recipe to share with you all, because we all know how much I love hot chocolate. This time this one has a bit of red wine in it since red wine and chocolate go hand in hand so well. I’ve had this a few times and I always enjoy it.

This recipe calls for brown sugar. I like to use dark brown sugar because it has a richer flavor. It’s simple to put together and it’s perfect for the current season or if you have some red wine you haven’t finished and are trying to find some delicious ways of finishing it off.

I decided to put my red wine hot chocolate into my Australia mug in honor of the Aussie I got this recipe from. Diana Mieczan from Express-O. I thank her for such a great drink that mixes two of my favorite things. Hats off to you Diana!
