For some reason, I’m super into Valentine’s Day this year. Not for the mushy, lovey-dovey stuff, but in the old-school “let’s break out the pink and red construction paper, doilies, and glitter” sort of way. Remember when you used to give valentine’s to everyone you knew? This year, I’m bringing that back.
Specifically, with these double chocolate and red wine cookies (and also with some tequila-lime cookies that I’ll share next week) that are perfect for sharing with all of your very best friends. Because what says Valentine’s Day more than chocolate and red wine?
Chocolate and red wine both have an intense, earthy flavor that balances out the sweetness in baked goods. You probably wouldn’t be able to tell that there was wine in them if you didn’t know ahead of time, but it gives them an interesting flavor that will make you wonder what the “secret” ingredient is. The combination must be very popular this year, because in the approximately 5 minutes that I’ve had to spend catching up on my favorite blogs this week I came across not one but two other treats using this combination! (Jessica’s Cabernet Chocolate Truffles and Gaby’s Red Wine Brownies both look awesome!)
