Red Wine Hot Cocoa Is A Christmas Miracle


Because we’ve been good all year too, Santa

December is here — the most wonderful time of the year, right? Well, not entirely. It’s also incredibly stressful and hectic with a million obligations and gifts to buy along with hyper kids who are super excited about Santa, snow and the Elf on the Shelf. That fucking Elf.

That’s why now, more than ever, we need a winter hero for moms. And that hero is red wine hot cocoa.

You read that right — you can now combine two of your very favorite vices into one warm, buzzy, beautiful, steaming cup full of vices. Chocolate and wine, together like they were always meant to be. The recipe comes to us courtesy of Elite Daily, and trust us — you’re going to want to screenshot this.

First of all, behold; isn’t it beautiful?

Now, wipe the drool from your chin so we can get down to business. You’ll need a few ingredients: three teaspoons of unsweetened cocoa powder, four teaspoons of sugar and 1/8th teaspoon of salt. Mix that shit together in a small pot.

SO PRETTY.

Next, stir in two to three tablespoons of milk and then, the magic ingredient — a quarter cup of red wine. Mine may have a few extra splashes of vino so maybe add that “to taste.”

Glug, glug, glug, glug.

Once it’s good and hot, all that’s left to do is pour into your favorite mug and cue up Netflix. And if you’re me, slip into your new adult footed pajamas you bought in a fit of whimsy last week. Because, why the fuck not?

The fun doesn’t even have to stop there, and as you can see from these Instagram posts, there are ways to change it up. Elite Daily suggests melted chocolate chips in place of cocoa powder, a method we strongly endorse as that makes it a lot richer and more chocolaty. You can also add in loads of marshmallows, sprinkle more cocoa powder on top of them, or even cinnamon. Or whipped cream. Or use half and half in place of milk so it’s creamier. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination and alcohol tolerance.

Oh, and here are some red wine brownies from A Cookie Named Desire you can dunk in your red wine hot cocoa and if this is inception, please never let it stop. Red wine in all the things, please.
