Here’s a Valentine’s Day recipe to make you swoon.
A chocolate cookie made with red wine may sound strange, but I assure you it is a tiny bite of heaven. It’s like one of those phenomena that makes you ask, “is this too good to be true?” Like magically scoring tickets to the Oprah Winfrey show (when it was still on the air) on the very day that she happens to be giving away Christian Louboutins to everyone in the audience! Can you imagine?! Yeah, that’s what these cookies are like. Pure amour.
Ingredients: (makes 2 to 3 dozen cookies)
Adapted from Simply Scratch
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 stick unsalted butter
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup red wine (I used pinot noir, but you could use merlot, red zinfandel or any red table wine)
1 bag (10 oz) semisweet chocolate chips (I used mini chips)
Directions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a mixing bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, salt. and baking soda. Set aside.
In a separate mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Next, add in the egg, vanilla, and red wine. Mix until well combined.
Then, slowly add in the dry ingredients until mixed well.
Finally, fold in the chocolate chips.
The batter will be silky and gorgeous. (And tastes incredible!)
Let’s have a closer look.
Spoon the batter onto a prepared baking pan, leaving a few inches in between. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving.
Aren’t these gorgeous? And they are intense. The chocolate is silken with a tangy red wine finish.
Perfect for your valentine. xoxo
