Introduction: Mulled Wine Dessert Cups

Step 1: You Will Need...
Recipe makes 2 servings
1 Cup Red Wine (your choice)
1 pkg Orange Gelatin
2 TBSP Honey
1 tsp Vanilla extract
2-3 dashes of ground cloves
Tools: Saucepan, measuring cup, measuring spoons, stirring utensil, shallow glass pan, small cups/dishes for serving
Step 2: You Make Me Hot
Combine all ingredients EXCEPT the gelatin in a saucepan.
Heat on Low. Do not boil. You're just heating it enough to liquify the honey and ensure even distribution of all ingredients throughout.
Whisk to mix.
Step 3: We Gel Together
Now add your orange gelatin 1 TBSP at a time.
Pour in a TBSP.
Whisk/ stir until dissolved before adding the next portion of gelatin.
Do this 4 times. You'll notice you're mixture gets a little more vibrant with each dose of orange and you'll really start to smell the yumminess!
Step 4: Playing Hard to Get
Once all gelatin portions have been added and are dissolved/ mixed in, pour the liquid into your shallow glass pan.
Here's the hard part: Refrigerate at least 2 hrs.
Your mixture will set into a gelatin dessert state.
*Note: If you have a kids, you might want to tuck this in the back or label it "only for grown ups". The last thing you need if you're trying to have a romantic night in is a missing dessert and a couple of crunk toddlers.
Step 5: Let's Spoon!
When the dessert is set, spoon into your chosen serving dishes or cups.
Garnish with a small wedge of orange, or give it a quick chocolate drizzle.
This tastes just like a cozy mulled wine and is sure to be a unique addition to any V-Day dinner. Perfect for a treat by a romantic fireside or as a fun alternative to mimosas at brunch! I am totally guilty of having a few spoonfuls for breakfast today....
