 Now, you might be thinking, “red wine hot chocolate? I don’t think so!” But hear me out, because I was skeptical at first too. This is quite the treat, it’s like adult hot chocolate that is perfect for Saturday midday while prepping for your weekend holiday party, or for watching your favorite Christmas movies with your hubby and having a relaxing night in! It’s also great night cap, in substitution of dessert. Trust me, this list goes on.  This red wine hot chocolate takes only a few minutes and is the newest addition to your list of holiday recipes. It’s easy, it’s rich and let me tell you, it’s taste is impeccable (like, life changing!)

 

To make things easy, and not so complicated, I just slightly altered the Hershey’s Hot Chocolate recipe on that you can find on the back of their cocoa powder. Of course, I added a say more vanilla and some red wine.. it is red wine hot chocolate:) Serve it in your favorite holiday mugs!
