Chocolate Mudslide: 3 Recipes

I live in Northern California, and we've had three weeks of storms: bomb cyclones, atmospheric rivers, thunder, lightning, rain, wind, hail -- and mudslides. The impact of these Chocolate Mudslides is so much better than those in nature. Here are three recipes for that well known alcoholic beverage: the Chocolate Mudslide.  

And here's the toast: "May your mudslides  happen only in a glass!"

  • 0.5 oz Smirnoff No. 21 Vodka
