How to Make Fudge with Wine

We were thinking about going on a diet this month, but then we got to thinking about chocolate…and wine…together. That was just so much more fun!

So, we’re putting the skinny jeans off for another couple of weeks while we indulge in this glorious red wine fudge. It’s made with our sweet Mountain Goat Red wine. That’s pretty much adult grape juice. If you prefer to infuse your fudge with something a bit less sweet, you could try using Split Rail Red wine instead.

With just a few minutes and a microwave you can whip together this easy fudge recipe. It turns out a soft, silky chocolate that’s kissed with a touch of wine flavor. We based it off of the original fantasy fudge recipe that used to be printed on the back of marshmallow crème containers.

If you can’t get enough of the chocolate-wine combo (and really when can you ever get enough of that?) you might like some of our other chocolate and wine pairings.

There are chocolate and wine cupcakes (with wine-infused frosting), and red wine brownies. You can even add wine to your ice cream with this luscious wine chocolate syrup.

If you have any favorite desserts that you would like to see infused with wine, let us know in the comment section.
