Give your hot chocolate a bold kick

Who knew you could make hot chocolate with red wine?! And with DEFY wine all being vegan, you can easily make this a vegan-friendly version.

This recipe was so easy to do and it made the hot chocolate even richer and more indulgent than ever. Almost a nice, fruity taste to it, but in a "chocolate is fruity", kinda way.

Hot chocolate ingredients on a kitchen worktop.

Serving size

1 large mug


  • 1/3 cup drinking chocolate (we went for LAND)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 cups milk of choice
  • 1/3 can of DEFY red wine (you can get a bit lose with this measurement)


Heat everything in a small saucepan on the stove over low to medium heat.

Wait for the chocolate to melt and the entire mixture to thicken, then serve. The longer you heat it the less alcohol it will have since it'll evaporate.

It's really as easy as that.

Fu#k!ng delicious.
