8 Mouthwatering Chocolate and Wine Recipes

#sponsored
With our love for chocolate never ceasing, we thought we’d bring you a round-up of luxurious recipes that involve another decadent household favourite: wine. Why? Well, because this amazing taste combination isn’t baked enough! It also gives you a great excuse to knock back some Merlot while cooking up a storm in the kitchen. Think of all those antioxidants (that makes it healthy, right?)!

Bon Appétit’s Darkest Chocolate Cake With Red Wine Glaze
Why do things in halves when you can go the whole hog? Invite your friends over, crack open a few bottles of Pinot Noir, and dig into this beautiful beast. It would be selfish to keep it all to yourself (but we won’t tell).

Saveur’s Bittersweet Hot Chocolate With Red Wine
This is a beautiful winter beverage. If you haven’t tried it yet, you really should. Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Beaujolais, and Merlot are all great additions for this recipe (and are all wonderfully rich wines). This is hot chocolate the proper way, using melted bittersweet chocolate. None of that powdered stuff!

Taste’s Red Wine & Chocolate Tart
If you’re hosting a dinner party, this is the perfect piece de la resistance. After a delicious main meal, this tart sweetens the palette with rich chocolate and wine. This taste combination is no joke! Crack open some bottles of mellow Merlot for this recipe.

Food & Wine’s Chocolate Red Wine Bundt Cake
Adding wine to this delicious chocolate bundt cake gives it a gorgeous, boozy aftertaste. Choose a nice, dry red wine for this recipe and enjoy! (A bit for the cake, a bit for me, a bit for the cake, a bit for me…).

Table For Two’s Red Wine And Chocolate Cupcakes
Cupcakes are a great idea for bitesized heaven (without scoffing down a whole cake). Incredibly moist, these boozy mouthfuls are a wonderful treat for weekend relaxation. Pile that frosting high! Although you can get away with pretty much any red wine for this recipe, we love this Banyuls Reserva by Yapp Brothers, a specialist independent wine merchant.

Bake Noir’s Red Wine And Chocolate Truffles
A seriously adult indulgence, these posh Cabernet Sauvignon truffles are packed with sophisticated, intense flavours. Unwind with these sumptuous bites and a glass of your red wine. You should be able to taste the fruitiness of the vino through the powerful chocolate.

Delicious Everyday’s Chocolate Pots De Crème With Red Wine Poached Cherries
Moving onto fruitier options, this is a fantastic dessert for sharing (or not). Definitely one for chocolate-lovers, these delightful pots taste out of this world with vino-poached cherries. Of course, everyone’s glasses should be filled with wine too! We can see this being a firm favourite at barbeques this summer.

Poached Pears In Red Wine & Chocolate Glaze
Another dish that can wow dinner party guests, these wine poached pears look professional. We think it would be a gorgeous finish to a wonderful meal with friends.
