Ingredients

Graham Cracker Crust

  • 1 1/4 cups cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar packed
  • 5 tablespoons melted butter

Red Wine Chocolate Pudding Pie

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup Barefoot Merlot
  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 (4 oz) baking bars bittersweet chocolate finely chopped, 66% cocoa
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter cubed

Garnishes

  • chocolate syrup
  • whipped cream
  • maraschino cherries
  • extra bittersweet chocolate

Instructions

Graham Cracker Crust

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a medium sized bowl, stir together graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter until well combined.
  • Firmly press the mixture into the bottom and sides of a 9 or 10 inch pie pan.
  • Bake for 6-8 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool before filling with the chocolate pudding mixture.

Red Wine Chocolate Pudding Pie

  • Place bittersweet chocolate and butter into a large bowl. Set aside.
  • Heat the heavy cream and Merlot in a small saucepan over medium heat until hot (about when it starts to bubble around the edges). You don't want to mixture to boil.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the coffee, cocoa, sugar, and salt until smooth.
  • Pour hot mixture over chocolate/butter and whisk until smooth.
  • Pour mixture into cooled pie crust.
  • Cover with plastic (the plastic will stick to the top of the pudding - that's good) and chill until the pie has set, at least 6 hours.
  • Garnish with whipped cream, maraschino cherries, a drizzle of chocolate syrup, and shaved bittersweet chocolate.
  • Serve and enjoy!
