Wine and Chocolate (the Two Most Basic Food Groups)

October 31st, 2014 (08:04 pm)

A few years ago I did some extensive research to determine which red wines should be served with different Halloween candies. For instance, a hearty Toscana nicely complements Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. And a lighter-bodied Pinot Noir paired well with the dark-chocolate Three Musketeers bars with mint, which unfortunately no longer seem to be available.

Tonight I added to my research, discovering through exhaustive scientific testing that an Argentine Malbec is the perfect accompaniment to the "Midnight" (dark chocolate) Milky Way bars. "Fun-sized," of course.

Just in case you were wondering what to serve next Halloween.

Happy Halloween!
Pumpkins!
