The Best Damn Wine-Spiked Chocolate Fondue Recipe

Cocoa Vin -- Thrillist Recipes

There's something incredibly sexy about melted chocolate. Maybe it's the way it flows, like satin sheets. Or the way it slowly and sensually embraces everything it touches. Perhaps it's because eating it invariably means licking. Lots of licking.

All of these are good enough reasons to serve your lover chocolate fondue. Add red wine into the mix and who knows where the night will take you. Maybe nowhere but at least you gave it a good shot, pal.
