Red wine hot chocolate

--> recette en français

    A few weeks ago, I published a chocolate red wine cupcakes recipe on the French version of the blog. I recently discovered the chocolate and red wine association even if it has been quite trendy in the US for a few years already. And of course, I was not going to leave it there.

   So I thought, what better moment of the year than Christmas holidays to try another recipe with hot chocolate and mulled wine. Well, Christmas is over but not the end of the year holidays - and who said we couldn't enjoy hot chocolate or mulled wine all winter long?! 

   This drink if - of course - only for grown-ups but if you like both hot chocolate and mulled wine separately, I bet you'll like them together. This is a nice comfort drink, to be taken in moderation, even if, once cooked, wine is less alcoholic. I didn't put spices in my first try but you can add some of your choice (cinnamon, cloves, star anise, etc.)

   You can easily make this recipe vegan, using plant-based milk, dairy free chocolate and organic vegan wine (find a list here). 

   And if you're not a hot chocolate fan, you can make a Glögg, a Swedish Christmas mulled wine or a mulled white Christmas wine
