This month we partnered with the Astrotwins to reveal the ways your zodiac sign informs your chocolate preferences. According to the Astrotwins, "Each zodiac sign has a distinct set of personality traits — and believe it or not, there's a chocolate recipe out there to match every horoscope sign."

You, Taurus, are an epicure. You appreciate the finer things in life, especially when it comes to food and drink. Chocolate and red wine hold a special place in your heart, which means a sultry drink like red wine hot chocolate is right up your alley. You take pure delight in just about any good nibble or sip, but you especially love those that carry a gourmet touch. These five chocolate treats have just that and more to satisfy your pleasure-seeking self.

1. Red Wine Hot Chocolate

The pleasure of a good piece of dark chocolate and a good glass of red wine are well-known to you. Here they join forces in one rich, decadent, and warming mug that's just right for curling up with at the end of the day.

2. Chocolate-Dipped Figs with Sea Salt

Figs, whether dried or fresh, carry an air of lusciousness with them, thanks to their natural, honeyed sweetness. Here, dried ones are dipped in dark chocolate and sprinkled with flaky sea salt for a gourmet, giftable treat that you'll likely want to keep all for yourself.

3. Dark Chocolate Bark with Pistachios, Rose Petals & Walnuts

You dig treats that are a little fancier than usual. So while you're perfectly content with regular ol' chocolate bark, this upgraded version, topped with fragrant dried rose petals and crunchy nuts, suits you.

4. Chocolate Hazelnut Crunch Bars

These slim chocolate bars look like they came right out of a high-end chocolate or pastry shop. The visual appeal may be what pulls you in, but it's how they taste — decadently rich and texturally interesting — that has you going in for seconds.
