Chocolate-covered garlic

This recipe sounds downright stupid at first but it's actually really really good.


24 cloves of garlic (peeled)
1/2 cup red wine
1/4 cup sugar
4 tbsp lemon zest
1 bar "high" cacao chocolate


Bring the first four ingredients to a boil. Cook on very low heat uncovered for 25-30 minutes (stirring occasionally.) Let it cool for a bit. The cloves should be quite sticky.

Melt the chocolate (you can either microwave at a low heat, or dip a glass bowl in boiling water.)

Dip each clove in the melted chocolate, and place them on a piece of foil. Transfer to the refrigerator and let it cool for at least an hour.

Best eaten fresh.
