You can't argue with that!

Ingredients

Half a cup of milk

1 cup of your preferred red wine

1/3 cup of dark chocolate pieces

Her recipe for making 2 mugs is as follows:

'In a saucepan over medium heat, combine milk and chocolate chips. Whisking constantly until chocolate is melted into milk and you have a thick and creamy chocolate milk. Pour in red wine and heat until everything is hot. Pour into 2 mugs or 6-8 smaller glasses and top with coconut whipped cream.'

We can't wait to warm up with a glass of this!
