All you’ll need is:

  • 1½ cups of milk
  • 1 cup of your favorite red wine

  • ⅓ cup of dark chocolate chunks

You can also add whipped cream or marshmallows if you’d like.

We used Trader Joe’s Cabernet Sauvignon, which only costs $2.99 a bottle.

Over medium heat, combine the milk and chocolate, whisking until the chocolate is melted. Add the wine and stir until it’s hot. Pour into your favorite mug.
