1bottle red wineMerlot, Shiraz, or Cabernet Sauvignon
2 ½cupssemisweet chocolate morsels
¼cupunsweetened cocoa powder
¼cuppacked brown sugar
In a slow cooker, combine chocolate morsels, sugar, cocoa powder, salt, milk, and red wine and stir.
Cover and cook on HIGH for 1 hour, whisking after every 15 minutes or so.
Serve in mugs and sprinkle on your favorite toppings.
Make sure to stir the hot chocolate every hour to keep the chocolate from settling to the bottom.
Keep on the warm setting if you're serving it hot chocolate bar style with toppings on the side. Leftover hot chocolate can be refrigerated for up to one week and warmed in the microwave before serving.
*Once the hot chocolate cooks, you want to try and serve this within 1 hour. *You can also make this on the stove if you don’t have a slow cooker. Follow the same instructions over medium heat until it begins to simmer (approx 15 minutes). Make sure the hot chocolate doesn’t boil. Pour it into a carafe to keep warm.
