The Best of 3 Worlds… Dark Chocolate, Espresso, Red Wine



In August we often complain

that winter is becoming a pain

But there is plenty of reason

to enjoy the cold season

Chocolate, coffee and wine

will make you feel just fine!

If the coffee is espresso and the wine Cabernet

combine with dark chocolate and make your own day!

HOT Chocolate Recipe (click here to watch the recipe video!)

Serves 2

Ingredients

250 ml double cream

2 teaspoons corn starch

80 ml dark chocolate chips

60 ml Terbodore Espresso

60 ml Leopard’s Leap Cabernet Sauvignon

Optional: Mini marshmallows for serving

Method

Add the cream and corn starch to a medium-sized pot. Whisk until the corn starch is dissolved. Add the chocolate chips and place over medium heat. Heat just until all the chocolate has melted and dissolved into the milk, stirring continuously (about 6-7 minutes). The heat may need to be reduced to low to keep the liquid from boiling. The liquid will be thick.

Remove the pot from the heat.

Slowly whisk in the espresso and wine.

Pour into espresso cups to serve.

Optional: Top each espresso cup with mini marshmallows.
