If you love wine as much as we think you do, then you’ll love these desserts made with red wine. These decadent red wine desserts are sophisticated and tasty. You don’t have to use expensive red wine; in most cases even a fairly cheap bottle will do the trick. Most of the recipes don’t take a lot of wine, so it’s best to use a wine you like to drink as well-you can pour a glass of wine to drink while you make your dessert!
Try these great desserts with wine as an ingredient:
Red Wine Chocolate Cake

Yes, that’s a mouthful, but not just to say! These red wine poached pears look classy and taste divine. This dessert is the perfect harmony of elements.

Serve this dessert made with red wine in stemless wineglasses for a great presentation.

Red Wine Crème Brulee
Want the perfect way to end a fancy dinner party? This red wine crème brulee is sure to impress. It only takes a few minutes to whip up, but does take some time to bake and let cool.
Berry Sangria Sorbet
Sangria is a great wine drink…and also a great wine dessert! Whip up a batch of this vegan & gluten-free berry sangria sorbet and you’ll make a lot of people smile. Be careful, though, because unlike most desserts with red wine as an ingredient, the alcohol content in berry sangria sorbet doesn’t “cook off” with heat. If you eat too much you might get a little tipsy.
Red Wine Ice Cream
For something creamier than sorbet, go for some red wine ice cream. This is one ice cream you won’t find in the freezer section of the grocery store, but that’s okay because it’s not too difficult to make. You do not need an ice cream maker for this recipe. If you love homemade ice cream as much as you love wine, this is one of the desserts made with red wine that you cannot skip!
Dark Chocolate Red Wine Fudge
It’s not just the wine that gives this dark chocolate fudge a “kick”; the ¼ teaspoon of cayenne pepper is what really goes “pow!” in your mouth. It may sound like a strange combo, but it’s definitely one you have to try at least once. And once you do, you’ll likely want to try it again.
