Both Chocolate and Vodka are known aphrodisiacs. Mix the two together and you have a killer cocktail for passion. They can be combined together in foods, in a drink or just straight up ala carte. Grab some candles, put the lights down low, break out some Barry White and let the evening go.
Paper Moons Homemade Vodka Chocolate Video
Yeah yeah, the Video is homemade. I didn't say it would teach you to make homemade chocolates! (we will do that later, only we wont use a video)
Just settin the mood....
Chocolate Covered Vodka Cherries
This is the easy kind.
- Bottle maraschino cherries.
- Lots of Dark Chocolate.
- Wax paper
Drain the bottle of cherries. Pour in the vodka. Let sit for at least 24 hours. (don't be so impatient.) 3 days to a week is best.
Pour the Vodka out of the cherries. (You have just made cherry vodka) Drink this. Pat the cherries dry. Put them back in the bottle and place in the freezer.
Wait. (at least an hour)
Get a good quality Dark Chocolate (milk chocolate works, but hey, go for the best) Reserve jut a bit, and melt the rest in a double boiler. When melted, wait one minute, then add the remaining chunk of chocolate. Fold gently till it is melted.
Lay the cherries out and pat them dry again.
Place a toothpick in a cherry and dip into the chocolate. Using another toothpick, push the cherry off onto waxed paper. (re dip the tip of the toothpic in chocolate and "paint" any hole from the first toothpick.
Let cherries sit for at least 15 min. Place them in the freezer for about 5-10 min. Place your beautiful boozy cherries in an airtight container until you are ready to gift wrap them or consume.
( if you use real cherries, pit them and let them soak 2-3 weeks )
Home made Chocolodka
