Why not host your own wine and chocolate tasting at home. While pairing chocolate and wine may seem a challenge suited only for seasoned foodies, there are a two simple rules of thumb simple enough for the average chocoholic to follow. Rule number one: Stick to what you know. Choose your chocolate and pair it with your favorite wine, you may be surprised with your pallet's savvy. Rule number two: Match your flavors. Pair a sweet wine with a super sweet milk chocolate. Try a full bodied wine with a deep, dark or bittersweet chocolate.
