A few weeks ago I gave you all the ingredients you need for a "Good God Almighty" Spiked Hot Chocolate Party—and MyBrownBaby mommies from far and wide said they were plotting and planning chocolate get-togethers of their own. Getting Morris Chestnut and Omar Epps to the party apparently isn't an issue (we all own a small hunk of that chocolate on DVD), and assembling a bunch of girlfriends to get in on the action is easy enough. But I neglected to include recipes for the Godiva Chocolatinis and the Godiva liquer- and rum-infused fudge brownies.

My bad, y'all.

No worries—I got you.

The absolutely-to-die-for brownies we had a the Spiked Hot Chocolate Party I hosted at my place were handmade by Kris, the super sweetie pie husband of Akilah, a.k.a. Execumama. The exchange was simple: Kris agreed to make the brownies if I sent him a Godiva Chocolatini. What?! As Akilah says: SCORE!

Of course, getting the brownies was a lot easier than copping the recipe. But finally, earlier this week, he divulged the secret recipe for his Godiva liquer- and rum-infused fudge brownies over at the fabulous Execumama. CLICK HERE to find out how to make this chocolatey, brownilicious goodness.

As for the Chocolatinis, those were my thing. I copped the recipe from Drinks Mixer and made them by the glass; each one came out absolutely perfect. I rimmed our glasses with chocolate syrup and dropped Hershey's kisses at the bottom of the glass to make our drinks extra special. Heck, I might just make one for myself tonight—who needs a party?


What You Need

1 1/2 shots Godiva® chocolate liqueur
1 1/2 shots creme de cacao
1/2 shot vodka
2 1/2 shots half-and-half

How You Make It

Mix all ingredients in a shaker with ice, shake and pour into a chilled cocktail glass.

Enjoy (responsibly) and happy weekend!
