Hot Chocolate Shots

Hot Chocolate Shots

Ingredients

2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup chocolate ice cream
1 square unsweetened baking chocolate
1 3/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon orange extract
3/4 cup chocolate liqueur

1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips - for glass rim
Small orange wedges, to garnish

Method

In a saucepan, melt together the butter, sugar, ice cream, and baking chocolate until smooth.

Whisk in the water and orange extract. Heat over medium-high heat, just until steaming.

Once mixture has cooled a little, stir in chocolate liqueur.

Melt chocolate chips in a small, microwave-safe bowl just until melted. The chocolate should be smooth and melty, but not hot.

Dip the edges of each shot glass into the melted chocolate. Allow the chocolate to cool and harden before pouring hot chocolate liqueur mix into glasses and garnishing with orange wedge.
