Forget chicken soup. Red wine is what you want to warm your bones and soothe your soul this winter. And what pairs better with wine than (yes, more wine, but also) chocolate.

Whether you’re cooking sweets for one on a Friday night in or bringing a decadent dish to a pot luck, these red wine recipes mix good food with a fermented punch.

Go for it. Just put the chocolate in your wine.

And remember: the darker the chocolate, the darker the wine.
