To Make Wine Chocolate
Take a pint of Sherry, or a Pint and a half of red Port, four Ounces and a half of Chocolate, six Ounces of fine Sugar, and half an Ounce of white Starch or fine Flour; mix, dissolve, and boil all these as before. But, if your Chocolate be with Sugar, take double the Quantity of Chocolate, and half the Quantity of Sugar; and so in all. —The Cooks and Confectioners Dictionary, John Nott, 1726
*You may use American Heritage Drink Mix as your chocolate for this recipe. As it is already sweetened, please start by adding only 3 oz. of sugar and then add more accordingly if needed to suit your taste.
