When I first read that Amy at Simply Sugar and Gluten Free  was hosting Cocktails, Mocktails and Appetizers for the Holiday Food Fest , I immediately thought of our Chocolate Martinis. It’s a recipe that my husband and I worked at creating several years ago. OK. My husband actually did the work, measuring, shaking, etc. I sat on the couch, tasted them and gave them a thumbs up or thumbs down. We tried several brands and types of alcohol to arrive at this recipe. I must warn you: Though they are deliciously chocolate, this is a martini and very strong! I’m a light-weight when it comes to alcohol, and one is usually all I can handle in one night.
Magic Shell  (optional for decorating the glass)
Dark Chocolate ice cream (The darker, richer chocolate ice creams are best for this.)
1.5 oz. Kahlua
1.5 oz.Creme de Cacao (You can use dark or clear varieties, we used the dark.)
1.5 oz. Vodka (Any will do, but we used a chocolate infused vodka for even more chocolate flavor.)
I am also linking this to “What Can I Eat That’s Gluten-Free?” at The Gluten-Free Homemaker . So, be sure to check out all of the gluten-free recipes and ideas shared at this round-up, too.
