Today I thought I would change it up and share a simple adult hot chocolate recipe. One thing my husband and I love to enjoy when the weather gets colder is warm adult beverages and holiday movies. My favorite is hot chocolate with red wine. I like to make my hot chocolate from scratch so here is a super simple recipe.

Hot Chocolate with Red Wine

This recipe serves 4 or 8 depending on cup size


1 cup of dark chocolate chips

2 tablespoons of cocoa powder

2 pinches of cinnamon

4 cups of milk

1 1/2 – 2 cups of red wine

Mix all of your dry ingredients in a large saucepan over low heat, until ingredients are mixed well into a smooth ball. Add 4 cups of milk on medium heat and bring to a boil. Keep stirring to ensure mixture is smooth and mixed well. Remove from heat, add wine, and serve.
