      If you hadn't noticed I (Martha) have an extensive kooky t-shirt collection.  The one pictured here is one of my favorites and it does ring true...guess that's why the big guy bought it for me!  I like chocolate and desserts, but when counting my calories I have to make choices and I will usually opt to have liquor as my dessert.  But sometimes you want to have your cake and eat it too...that's when the chocolate martini is the best of both worlds.

      I have two recipes in my repertoire.  One is creamy and almost milkshakey and the other is more of a true martini cocktail.  Which ever one you choose...enjoy becoming like a chocoholic for booze.                 

 XOXO Martha
