Photo: Randy Mayor; Styling: Jan Gautro
Yield 2 cups (serving size: 2 tablespoons)
This dark sauce takes advantage of chocolate's affinity for red wine. Dutch process cocoa lends the sauce richer chocolate flavor than regular unsweetened cocoa. Store in the refrigerator for up to one week.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cabernet sauvignon or other dry red wine
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 sachet Mulling Spice Blend
  • 1/2 cup Dutch process cocoa
  • 1/2 cup light-colored corn syrup
  • 1 ounce semisweet chocolate, chopped
