    The name and the testing response says it all.
    This may very well be "The Perfect Camping Cocoa."

    Recipe type: Adult Beverage

    Cuisine: Campfire Cooking

    Serves: 3-4 cups

    • 1 cup milk (we used whole milk)
    • 1 cup half & half
    • ½ cup dark chocolate chips (or chop up your favorite dark chocolate bar)
    • ¼ cup light brown sugar
    • 1 cup Black Box Cabernet Sauvignon red wine [whatever]
    1. In saucepan over medium heat, combine milk, half and half, brown sugar, and dark chocolate chips/chunks.
    2. Whisk continuously until chocolate is completely melted and you have a thick and creamy hot chocolate.
    3. Continue heating and whisking until just below boiling point. (Taste test often with a separate spoon to confirm temperature.)
    4. Add red wine in small amounts at a time, continuing to whisk continuously.
    5. Once all wine is added, bring up to just below boiling again. Then pour into a favorite mug and enjoy!
