If you’ve never heard of Pinterest check it out!!  It’s FREE to join and it’s like an online “bulletin board” where you can post your favorite pictures, ideas, recipes, and anything or everything you see around the internet on your own “boards”.  It’s easy to use and you can follow other people and they can follow you so you can find new things based on your interests.  It’s addictive, so beware!  I have found all sorts of great party ideas, recipes, photo ideas, crafts, gift ideas, etc.  It is similar to StumbleUpon which is also another great FREE website!  Both are worth checking out!  You can follow me on both.

Back to today’s drink….Mississippi Mudtini!  This drink is easy to make and quite decadent!  I think it takes me longer to spell M i s s i s s i p p i!  If you’re not familiar with Mississippi Mud recipes, they usually involve chocolate, marshmallow, and nuts.  The nuts are usually pecans, but I’ve seen walnuts and other nuts used too.  Great combination isn’t it???  To make the drink I used Pinnacle Marshmallow Vodka, Godiva Chocolate Liqueur, Nocello (walnut/hazelnut liqueur), milk, and some Hershey’s chocolate syrup. You could use any kind of nut liqueur.  I would have liked to have used a pecan liqueur but they’re not as widely available or easy to find as some of the other nut liqueurs.

I topped the drink off with Reddi-wip Chocolate whipped cream (oh my goodness, this stuff is GOOD!).  Then I found some chocolate bars in the cupboard and used a peeler to make some quick chocolate shavings.  The chocolate was probably leftover from the kids Halloween stash, so shhhhhhh…..

  10. Kelli from Happy Hour Cupcakes pointed me to this recipe and I had to try it out. I made slight modifications, using Frangelica for the nut liquor and cutting the vodka in half (4oz made the first drink overpowering). But the end result was chocolate decadence to ring in the New year with.. Fantastic recipe and a definite repeat in the near future.

  11. Hi Kelly…Wow, a chocolate lovers dream! Thank you. Lisa Montalva

  12. I am D.Y.I.N.G. for this right now. It’s 9:37 a.m. and I want to dive in! This is beyond fantastic Lisa. It could not be more inviting.
