This time of the year, it’s all about spending the holidays with friends, family, and loved ones. And ultimately, in most cases, the wine is pouring, the food is delicious…and we’re all enjoying each others company. I’m getting together with some gal pals this week and I thought nothing sounded better for the gathering than to make some Red Wine Cream Cheese Frosted Brownies for the occasion….each topped off with a delicious Brookside Dark Chocolate Pomegranate centered goodie on top!! Here’s how I made it…..
One regular boxed brownie mix, made according to instructions
8 oz. softened cream cheese
1 stick butter, room temperature
1 cup confectioners sugar
4 teaspoons Clos du Bois red wine in either Pinot Noir or Merlot variety depending on tastes
Red Wine Cream Cheese Frosting Instructions:
- Using mixer, combine cream cheese and butter until blended.
- Gradually add confectioners sugar.
- Add 4 teaspoons of red wine and blend until creamy.
Once brownies have cooled, frost generously with red wine cream cheese frosting and cut into squares. Top each square with a Brookside Chocolate.
Clos du Bois began with a vision of blending fine French winemaking techniques with the best Sonoma grapes to craft a range of balanced, approachable wines. Year after year, their wines have been appreciated by both wine critics and wine lovers alike.
BROOKSIDE Chocolate is rich, dark chocolate with sweetened soft centers made with exotic fruit flavors. It’s chocolate like you’ve never experienced before….perfect eaten ALONE or on top of a creamy wine infused brownie!
I can’t even explain to you how these flavors combine to make the PERFECT holiday dessert (or any time dessert really…). So you’ll have to make this easy recipe yourself soon rather than just taking my word for it!
Grab a bottle of Clos du Bois Merlot, some Brookside Dark Chocolates, and make these delicious brownies and you’ll be ready to celebrate the holidays in style and knock your friends socks off with your amazing recipe combinations!! Hope you all have a wonderful holiday!
