I'm not a huge vodka guy. I've never really liked the taste that much, and I would much rather have a G&T or a beer than a vodka drink any day of the week. With the exception of a bloody mary, I'll steer clear of vodka, thankyouverymuch. At least, until I met chocolate vodka. Get this: chocolate vodka is vodka that tastes mostly like chocolate. Talk about making lemonade out of lemons. Or, in this case, making chocolate vodka out of vodka.
The process is delicate, although not difficult. You'll need a double-boiler or some sort of jury-rigged double boiler to pull it off (a pyrex bowl in a big pot of water works). Since we're dealing with alcohol and open flames here, be careful.
Start by chopping up 5 candy bars. I'd recommend something like Milky Way or Mars bars, since then you get a little caramel essence infused into the vodka as well. I went with Mars bars. Toss the chopped up pieces into the boiler/bowl over simmering water. Stir them as they start to melt. When they are a fair bit melted, start pouring in your vodka, a little at a time.
Make sure that you don't let the vodka mixture get too hot, as that will burn off the alcohol (which has a lower boiling point than water. Try to keep the mixture at a lukewarm to warm temperature, so that the chocolate melts without the vodka boiling. Stir like crazy. Take the mix off of heat if you have to, and add more and more vodka to regulate temperature.
Once all of the chocolate has melted, use a funnel to pourthe mixture into a bottle. Let it cool to room temperature, and then pop it in the freezer. Let it sit in the freezer for at least 24 hours, and shake it every day. Boom. Chocolate vodka. I even made up some labels for mine, because I'm fancy like that.
