A sweet and luscious fortified dessert wine made with an abundance of fresh red raspberries. Richly aromatic and intensely flavorful, it is perfect to sip after a special meal. To taste it says it all. ADULT RASPBERRY HOT CHOCOLATE INGREDIENTS 10 ounces milk chocolate chips 1½ cup whole milk ½ cup heavy cream ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder Hosmer Raspberry Royale, to taste, plus another ⅓ cup for reducing Whipped cream and raspberries, to top DIRECTIONS Add everything but the Raspberry Royale, whipped cream, and raspberries to a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir occasionally until the chocolate completely melts. After the chocolate melts, continue to cook, but stir more frequently. The mixture should thicken a bit and all of the chunks should dissolve. After 5-10 minutes, remove the mixture from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes. As it cools, add ⅓ cup of Raspberry Royale to another small saucepan. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cook for a few minutes, until the Royale has thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon. Don't overcook, or it will become hard like candy, rather than syrupy, which is what we want. Pour the hot chocolate into little mugs (servings should be small because it is so rich), add Raspberry Royle to your liking, and top with whipped cream. Drizzle with the Royale reduction and top with a few raspberries and enjoy.
