Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dry red wine
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar

Directions

In a microwave, melt butter and chocolate; stir until smooth. Stir in wine and vanilla.
