A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending a Barry Callebaut Chocolate Demonstration at a local cooking studio. Chef Alicia Boada from Callebaut gave a very informative and delicious demo.
The demo started at 12:30pm with a chocolate martini and raspberry truffle. What a way to start an afternoon 😉 …
Followed by a tasting of chocolate … oh, the things I have to endure in the name of research …
Then we observed the making of Dulce de Leche Molten Chocolate Cake with Carmelized Banana and Tahitian Vanilla Ice Cream … I do believe everyone was drooling …
Eating all of this was a tough job … but I successed. I did it in the name of research … and the love of chocolate!
Anyway … I didn’t share this to torture you. I thought of a very easy Valentine’s Day idea.
Did you notice the chocolate syrup striping on the glass with the chocolate martini? I thought you could use the same idea in an actual martini glass with chocolate syrup or melted chocolate like I did …
I found that the angle of a martini glass makes this very easy to do.
This could be used for so many things … martinis (of course), any dessert or chocolate milk for the kids.
I filled it with some mousse, chocolate sprinkles and topped it with a heart that I had made from the Valentine’s Sno-Caps cupcakes.
I am sharing the Chocolate Martini recipe … it’s a good one!
Chocolate Martini (courtesy of Kitchen Wizards)
3 oz chocolate Liqueur
2 oz vanilla vodka
1 oz half and half
1 Tbsp. chocolate syrup
Pour over crushed ice.
You can stripe the glass with syrup before pouring.
Sounds sinfully delicious!
It was delicious … probably sinful too … but in a good way.
Don’t care for martinies, but I think I could really get to like the Chocolate Martini. i like the Mousse Martini too.
You can put anything you like in a martini glass!
I would fill my martini glass with a strawberry smoothie.
Pretty pink for Valentine’s Day 🙂
AWESOME!!!!!!!!! I will take 5.
I don’t want to judge, but 5 may be pushing it 😉
