DIRECTIONS

  • Sweeten the cocoa powder to your liking by mixing the cocoa and powdered sugar.
  • Take a large martini glass and very carefully coat the rim in caramel sauce from the squeeze bottle, being careful not to let it drip too far down the sides.
  • Then, dip the entire rim of the glass into the sweetened cocoa powder, being sure to coat all of the caramel.
  • The desired effect is a chocolate dusted caramel rim.
  • You can also put just a drop of chocolate syrup at the bottom of the glass for color.
  • Shake the vodka, creme de cacao and praline liqueur in a martini shaker with ice to chill.
  • Fill the martini glass nearly full with crushed or shaved ice, being careful not to touch the rim.
  • Strain the drink into the martini glass.
  • Garnish atop the floating ice with a roasted pecan half and a small piece of chopped chocolate.
  • Or you can garnish it with a half of a Turtle candy by making an incision and hanging it on the rim of the glass.
  • Also, if you prefer your martini to LOOK dark like chocolate, I would use the dark creme de cacao, however, the garnish will stand out more when the drink is more translucent.
