Here’s a recipe we did for our wine club members quite awhile back. We have had so many people ask us to post this recipe because they’ve either lost it or want to share it with friends. So here it is, we hope you enjoy it!
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, sweets are definitely the center of many gatherings and chocolate is often what we reach for first. By adding wine to this recipe, we improve flavor perception and get this wonderful yummy dessert. It’s magical, especially with all the yummy dipper possibilities
Noble Pig’s Chocolate-Pinot Noir Fondue
1 cup heavy cream
1-1/2 teaspoons instant espresso powder
12 ounces milk chocolate chips
2 Tablespoons Noble Pig Pinot Noir wine
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Dippers: Lady Fingers, Marshmallows, Pound Cake, Bananas, Pretzels, Dried Pineapple Rings, Strawberries, Raspberries, Graham Crackers…the possibilities are endless.
Combine cream and espresso powder over medium heat; bring to a simmer. Add chocolate chips and stir constantly until chocolate melts. Stir in the wine and vanilla extract.
Pour the chocolate sauce into a fondue pot or a small slow cooker to keep warm. Use skewers to dip accompaniments into the chocolate.
