Perfect and easy chocolate martini recipe

Some things become a signature item. My husband has a few of those. Whenever it’s pancake time, the wee ones look to him. When adults come over, they’re beginning to look to him for something different.

He’s our martini man. Chocolate martinis, to be specific. They’re pretty much a staple at any party we throw now. Well, except for the Super Bowl, of course. It doesn’t fit so well then.

But yum. Did I mention yum? Nah… a picture’s worth a thousand words:

Chocolate martinis at home

Chocolate Martini

5 parts half and half
1 part vodka
3 parts crème de cacao
3 parts Godiva liqueur
Hershey’s syrup for garnish

Place the half and half, vodka, crème de cacao, and Godiva in a shaker with ice (or two cups turned with openings facing each other to make a shaker if you don’t have one).

Line your glass with chocolate syrup to make it look pretty, but use less than you think you’ll need. Gravity helps you more than you anticipate here.

Prep your martini glass with chocolate syrup

Shake the alcohol, and pour immediately into your glass. Serve and enjoy. If there are leftovers, save them. Warning: placing them into a camelback is dangerous. Just sayin’!

Chocolate martini in a Camelback? Dangerous!

    That looks so, so good. I want to make one of those and just skip dinner tonight.

    The chocolate martinis look like a lot of fun! I'll be making them for our next party. I'm now following you . I would love it if you visited my blog and followed me back.

    3 words for you…

    Key lime pie!

    Best martini ever!

  • Not a Perfect Mom

    have you ever had the key lime pie martini?
    my fave!!!

    Jaci – If you need permission, I'm granting. I drank about a quarter of that camelback for my dinner Tuesday night!

    judee – Aww, you're so sweet. I'm sure they'll be a hit for your next party.

    Tara – Mmmm yep. And fun!

    Susie – Just make sure you invite me, alright? 😉

    Don – Yeah, but Wildfire changed their recipe, and they're SO not good there now. I talked to the manager, and they're trying to rework it, but I'm so sad.

    Holly – I have. Wildfire by us had the best ones ever, and none can compare. I may have to figure out how to do a *good* one for my next trick.

  • Steph @ Problem Solvin Mom

    Mmmm, so you're mixing drinks when we meet up next month, right?! 🙂

  • Michelle

    Steph – Technically, that's my husband's job 😉 But why not!

    […] Whenever I host a party, I do my best to have a “signature” drink.  It’s tasty, and it makes it just a little more fun for everyone.  On Sunday,  I hosted my annual cookie exchange – cookie recipes to come, too! – and I definitely wanted to come up with something fun.  Last year, we had chocolate martinis.
