Want to know a secret? I made this recipe last weekend, and man, did I need it!
I’ve been feeling a bit overwhelmed and unmotivated lately. I had a whole lot of plans for the past couple of weeks – from personal to professional, chores to fun family time activities, blogging included – and just couldn’t muster up the energy or excitement to follow through on them. That happens to me sometimes – too much to do makes me overwhelmed and then I end up not wanting to do anything, exacerbating the problem. So the chocolate bars that I bought for my s’mores-inspired dessert will remain in my pantry a little longer.
Instead, I took the easy way out from my final #Choctoberfest post – a cocktail. But I have to tell you, this martini really hit the spot after I was done shaking it up, testing it, and photographing it. The kids were off somewhere else in the house. I thoroughly enjoyed this sweet, slightly creamy cocktail while reading a book. Those few minutes of quiet were AMAZING.
More Recipes Using Chocolate Liquor
Just in case you are worried about buying the bottle of chocolate liquor… here are a few more recipes that use chocolate liquor. I’ve made both of these recipes with Godiva’s Dark Chocolate liquor, but you could use a milk chocolate liquor and/or another brand as well.
