Recently I discovered an entirely new experience in wine. It’s a new line called ChocolatRouge Wine and it combines the decadence of rich chocolate flavors with fine red wine. It’s a winning combination! Not only is it great in a wine glass to sip, but you can add it to your favorite recipe to add a bit of richness or even a few splashes to your favorite drink. It’s perfect for the holiday season when everyone wants a fun, spiked recipe. Or even as a great dessert wine to go with your favorite after dinner treat.

I picked up these two wines at my local grocery store, and had some great plans for them. Both of these recipes are great for the holiday season, and would be perfect to serve at your next holiday party or gift exchange.

For the Sweet Red I decided I’d like to create a dessert recipe that the wine could add a little more depth and sweetness to. I found a great looking recipe on the Betty Crocker website and tweaked it a bit to add some spike fun!

I also decided to create a coffee drink with the milk chocolate wine. Coffee, wine, and chocolate, what could be better? I combined the chocolate wine with a mocha coffee and added a little chocolate biscotti to stir it with. Complete with whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles! It’s a chocolate lovers dream, and perfect to serve for your guests after dinner while you sit in front of the fireplace and relax in front of the Christmas tree.
