Do you ever want to drink your feelings? Today my feelings taste like chocolate. Lots and lots and lots of chocolate. So I went for the best of both worlds: alcohol with chocolate in it. Enter the Marnier Chocolate Bonbon:
This recipe calls for some fancy shit. And you probably already know how that’s going to go, since we’re talking about me. Guys, I can’t even manage for-real hot chocolate. My version comes out of a Keurig.
I do have Grand Marnier (but I am not above using Triple Sec in an emergency, people, don’t get me wrong). Fancy tequila and hand-whipped cream? Fuck no.
Also in the “no” category is an Irish coffee or small wine glass. So since I was working with a big wine glass, I decided to make mine a double. I’m all about the problem-solving. (No kidding. That shit’s on my resume and everything.)
So what does it taste like? Like my sweet Aunt Bippy kicked you in the teeth. Ok, well. I don’t actually have a sweet Aunt Bippy. Or a mean Aunt Bippy, come to that. No such person exists, sweet or mean. But if I did have an Aunt Bippy, she would be the kind of person who makes hot chocolate for her guests from scratch and then hand-whips some damn cream, because nothing is too good for you little poops, but then she has a minor and temporary psychotic break and Chuck Norrises her foot right into your mouth for making fun of her Tarot card collection.
