Chocolate Red Wine Ice Cream is a fun and romantic way to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your special someone. The chocolate flavor is rich and creamy while the red wine adds a subtlety of depth to make the flavors pop!
Chocolate Red Wine Ice Cream is legit amazing. Sure, you could buy your Valentine wine or chocolate on this romantic holiday, but you’ll blow her mind if you combine the two. Want some V-Day hanky-panky? Serving up this ice cream will do the trick 😀
True confession time – I’m not big into Valentine’s Day. I don’t put pressure on Kieran to buy me anything for what I consider a Hallmark holiday. Sure, we wish each other a happy V-Day and exchange I love you’s, but neither of us needs or wants anything more than that. However, one year Kieran surprised me by making me a homemade Valentine’s Day card that was epic AF.
He Photoshopped me into a scene of my favorite video game, Mass Effect. Hahahha, look at my face!! I love this image so much <3
Kieran knows to make me happy all he has to do is buy me, beer, wine, or chocolate. For this recipe, I’ve combined wine and chocolate into a yummy Chocolate Red Wine Ice Cream treat!

A couple notes about the video. We fixed the blurriness problem from last week, but this week our lighting is inconsistent. One shot is fine, the next is blown out! We obviously have a lot to learn about lighting but we’ll get there. We purchased a microphone and new lighting to assist us in filming. I’m looking forward to knowing the equipment inside and out.
Here are some notes about the Chocolate Red Wine Ice Cream:
FREEZE THE ICE CREAM CANISTER ACCORDING TO THE MANUFACTURES INSTRUCTIONS – Mine had to be frozen 24 hours before I churned ice cream.
A. The consistency of this ice cream is soft serve, no matter how long you freeze it for.
B. I used 2% milk instead of whole. Feel free to use whole milk!
C. I originally tried to sweeten the ice cream with honey without the chocolate chips but the taste fell flat.
D. If you want the chocolate flavor to be extra, add cocoa powder AND espresso powder. Both give the chocolate flavor extra oomph.
E. Not filmed but I also tried this recipe with 1 cup frozen strawberries, it was delicious too! I thawed the strawberries and added them to the wine before blending. The taste resembles chocolate dipped strawberries in ice cream form!
F. I used my favorite dry red wine, Bogle Cabernet. To ensure you like the taste of this ice cream, use a red wine you enjoy!
Chocolate Red Wine Ice Cream is a fun dessert and delightful way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Do you know what this dessert would pair perfectly with? How about a nice steak dinner with sauteed spinach accompanied by a glass of red wine! Now we’re talking, people!
Alright, that should do it for this week’s post! Stay tuned next week for our epic snowshoeing video around Trillium Lake on Mt. Hood!
