Everyone knows that wine and chocolate are the perfect match! A wine that seems to be made for pairing with chocolate is Port. Port is a Portuguese fortified wine, meaning that brandy has been added during the fermentation process. When Brandy is added, it stops the wine from fermenting, which creates a sweet and high alcohol-content wine. Port, being a heavier bodied wine, offers a well-weighted pairingwhen enjoyed with chocolate. Chocolate and port is such a delicious pairing, that we decided to create a dish that combines the two, Port Infused Brownies! Regular brownies are already delicious as is, but Port Infused Brownies are irresistable! Some of you have already tried these at our events, but now you have the recipe so you can also enjoy them at home!
