Chocolate Peanut Butter Martini

This winter, my husband, my friend Katie and I tried out a little fun with our favorite combination - chocolate and peanut butter (really, we all really really love it! Yeah, who doesn't...).  The result was a silky, smooth, delicious chocolate peanut butter martini. To. Die. For. 

I posted a picture of the martini on Facebook and got so many likes, comments and requests for the recipe, I had to share it! 

Place in shaker with ice: 
1 part Godiva Chocolate Liquer
2 parts Reese's infused vodka
1 part (or less if you don't like too sweet) pb simple syrup
Shake, strain into martini glass. 
mini peanut butter cup garnish (I actually used the dark chocolate ones from Trader Joe's. So good!)

**For Reese's infused vodka -- melt 1/3 cup Reese's mini pb cups in a double boiler. Once melted, remove from heat and stir in 1 cup of vodka. Pour into glass jar, store in freezer. Shake before using. You want it chilled before you use it.

**Pb simple syrup -- dissolve 1 c sugar in 1 c water, add 3/4 c pb and melt together over low heat. Heat until syrup consistency. Can store in a squeeze bottle or mason jar. You can strain this if you have any pb chunks in it.

As Katie noted is often the case with martinis, 1 is not enough; 3 is too many. Luckily, she could walk home.;) Seriously, this is a decadent, delightful treat. Cheers.
