On Friday night, we had a med school class mixer and were instructed to bring something “classy” to the occasion. As I conjured classy concoctions in my head—champagne cupcakes, chocolate covered strawberries, truffles—I recalled a recipe that I had bookmarked back in February for dark chocolate red wine cookies. Chocolate + red wine = quite the classy combo, and furthermore, cookies aren’t too shabby of a vehicle for a healthy dose of antioxidants.
There’s only half a cup of red wine in these cookies, but it’s enough to impart them with a subtle bitterness and depth that is utterly decadent. They are sturdy, yet slightly soft and chewy, my idea for the perfect cookie consistency. Whether you’re looking to bring class to an affair, or just need a sweet reprieve from class studies, I highly recommend adding these cookies to your repertoire!
