I have been thinking about making chocolate shot glasses for a long time. A couple years ago, Jason gave me a shot glass mould, and so far I’ve only used it to make gummi shot glasses. (and the shot glasses are on sale now!)
Then, a few months ago, Jason came home with this local lovely:
Chocolate vodka made by Portland’s New Deal Distillery. I immediately thought of a crumbly graham cracker glass rim, with a lovely pouf of marshmallowy whip atop a shot of this vodka.
Then even better, I remembered my shot glass mould!
Hallelujah, the holidays could not come fast enough.
These are fun. These are tasty. These are happening on New Years.
s’mores shots in chocolate glasses
10-12 ounces dark chocolate
shot glass mould
2-3 tablespoons (gluten free) graham crumbs
4 ounces chocolate vodka
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 tablespoons non dairy whip (Soyatoo rice whip)
Shot glasses (make a day ahead): In medium saucepan, melt dark chocolate over medium heat. Spoon into shot mould, let cool. Place in refrigerator to set, preferably overnight. Makes four chocolate glasses.
Vanilla Whip: Stir vanilla into whip cream.
Pulse 2-3 graham crackers in food processor to a fine crumb (or use store bought crumbs), pour onto a flat plate. Wet the rim of each chocolate shot glass with water, roll in graham crumbs. Pour 1 ounce chocolate vodka into each shot glass, top with vanilla whip.
To be completely authentic, use marshmallows in place of vanilla whip: melt marshmallows top each shot glass with a pouf of mallow, or place marshmallows atop each glass and caramelize with a kitchen torch.
Cheers to chocolate! Cheers to you!
