Once we hit forty, women only have about four taste buds left: one for vodka, one for wine, one for cheese, and one for chocolate.
— Gina Barreca

This martini will satisfy two of those four taste buds. 🙂

Chocolate Bunny Tail Martini

I love vodka and I started wondering if there was a way to combine it with something else I love… chocolate! I researched a bit and found this article that listed three ways: water dish, freezer and dishwasher… umm, dishwasher? I opted with the freezer. Basically you add your chocolate to the vodka, pop it in the freezer for a couple weeks shaking it every now and again, and in two weeks you have chocolate vodka.

According to the article, the quality of vodka isn’t a concern because the chocolate makes up for the taste. But I say, yes it does matter. Cheap vodka is still cheap vodka and will leave me feeling nasty. So I went big… real big… Crystal Head. Of course, you can substitute any vodka you’d like. But I wanted to make this as an (adult) Easter treat and Crystal Head is a treat!

Crystal Head Vodka and Godiva Chocolate

I had an empty Crystal Head vodka bottle that I poured six ounces of vodka into. Then I chopped up half of a Godiva dark chocolate bar and added it to the bottle. I put Mr. Crystal Head into the freezer and shook him ever day. At first it didn’t look like much would happen, but during the second week things changed. The chocolate dissolved and started to look like chocolate milk. Oh… my yum!

By day 14, most of the chocolate was dissolved into the vodka. I strained the vodka chocolate into a shaker and added a cup of homemade whip cream and shook until mixed. Then I just poured into two martini glasses and topped with a dollop of whip cream. It’s so simple to make your own whip cream and the taste is worth it (recipe is below).

These taste amazing and are really more a dessert than martini. We liked them so much, we have another batch going in the freezer. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
