Chocolate and red wine are two things that go so well together. Combining them on a cold winter night and topping it off with a creamy froth and a sprinkle of grated chocolate will make you feel all warm and cozy inside.

  • 1 ½ cups half-and-half, divided

  • 4 ounces semisweet Belgian chocolate (43% cacao)

  • 1 ½ teaspoons white sugar

  • ½ cup Cabernet Sauvignon

  • 1 pinch grated chocolate


  1. Combine 1 cup half-and-half and Belgian chocolate in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally with a whisk, until chocolate is melted and mixture is hot, about 5 minutes. Add Cabernet Sauvignon and heat for 2 minutes more, whisking occasionally, until hot. Divide into 2 mugs.

  2. Heat remaining 1/2 cup of half-and-half either on the stove or in the microwave until hot. Transfer to a milk frother and froth until creamy. Divide frothed half-and-half between the 2 mugs and sprinkle with grated chocolate.

Cooks Note:

If you don't have a milk frother, you can place the heated half and half in a glass jar with a lid. Place lid on tightly and shake until frothy. Another option is to whisk the hot half and half vigorously with a whisk, until frothy.
