I told you all I was obsessed with Valentine's Day. A few years ago I made this drink up to have as dessert. Wowsa was it yummy. Strong. But yummy. Enjoy!

Serves 2

Prepare martini glasses by filling with ice cubes and water to chill glasses.

Pour following ingredients into pitcher and stir:

1 cup ice cubes
2/3 cup vodka
¼ chocolate syrup (I used Hershey’s)
1 tbsp Karo Syrup
¼ tsp vanilla

Stir until well mixed. Add ½ cup whole milk or half & half. Set aside or in fridge.

Pour ¼ cup of cocoa powder on a small plate. Pour ice water mixture out of martini glasses but make sure you run a wet finger over the edges. Dip edges of glasses in cocoa powder like you would if you were rimming a glass in salt for a margarita.

Place 3 chocolate chips in the bottom of each glass.

Pour drink mixture into glasses but make sure that you keep the ice from dropping into the glasses.

* Can be made in a martini shaker but I prefer mixing them.
** VERY strong!!! But yummy.
