Strawberry Fudge-tini

For the martini AND the chocolate lover!

Why do I always feel like I am behind? Whether I am working full-time or not, life is always busy. Although, I do much prefer the not-working-full-time brand of busy. I'll take cleaning up spilled milk and changing dirty diapers any day over that corporate, um, stuff, from a few months ago. 

For the past few days, between milk spills and time-outs, I have been pondering (and eating) fudge! The kind folks at Swiss Maid Fudge contacted me and asked me if I would like to receive FREE samples of fudge. Yes, please! I created (with the help of my kind husband) five unique recipes involving fudge and I will be sharing those with you over the next five days.

The first recipe I am going to share is a Strawberry Fudge-tini. If you like martinis, I promise you will enjoy this one!

This recipe is for a single serving, so adjust measurements as needed.

If you want to add a fun flare to your final product, drizzle Hershey's syrup over a martini glass. Place the glass in the freezer for 5 minutes.

Mash 1 large strawberry and place it into a cocktail shaker.

Add 2 1/2 ounces of chilled vodka to the shaker and shake vigorously.

Strain into the prepared glass.

Place two 1/2-inch cubes of milk chocolate-flavored fudge into the bottom of the glass. 

Garnish with a strawberry slice. Serve!

By the way, here is a photo of a small portion of the fudge I received in the mail. YUM!
