Kitchenelf, we agree - this is by far the best chocolate martini we have tasted (and that has been alot!). I, personally, do not care for the creamy kind.

Gobo, yes, DH means dear husband - I hope your mom likes this martini!

with a little orange

I make mine like that too but my favorite variation is to add a splash of orange liquer (mine's homemade but use what you have as long as it's good quality) and then garnish with a homemade dark chocolate covered candied orange peel for a swizzle stick. Ohhhhhh!

wanna have a little fun with them? Put a half dozen or so espresso beans in the shaker, and three or four in the bottom of the glass, dip a towel in some coffee or espresso and rim the glass, then sugar the edge of the glass with raw (demarra or 'Sugar In The Raw') sugar. Add or subtract the beans in the shaker to taste. The vodka quickly absorbs the flavor of the beans and the ice will crush the beans. Tasty. A touch of caramel in the bottom or a touch of cream floated on the top are nice touches as well.

Or you can put a Hershey's kiss in the bottom of the glass before filling with the martini - I had that nice surprise in a restaurant once.
