The Holidays.

That special time of year when calories don’t count, and indulgence is pretty much everywhere you turn.

That’s probably why everyone one is in such a good mood.  Who isn’t happy when stuffed with gingerbread and chocolate {the cocktails don’t hurt either}

I for one have the...I’ll worry about it in January  attitude when it comes to food in December.  The more festive the better, and that includes wine.

It doesn’t get more festive than Chocolate Red Wine.

Yes, you read that correctly. ChocolatRouge is a blend of rich chocolate and fine red wine, delicious  as an after dinner drink on the rocks, but it is AMAZING when baked into a dark chocolate loaf cake.

Oh, and I bet it would make the BEST molten lava cake
