Chocolate Fluffernutter Martini

Chocolate-Fluffernutter-Martini-1

Did you grow up with fluffernutter sandwiches? Do you still sometimes make one for yourself? Come on, tell the truth. It's overly sweet, way too sticky and...we still love them.

My obsession with peanut butter is still running high but I don't usually have a jar of fluff in the house unless there was a batch of whoopie pies being made. So, you guessed it - there was a recent batch of gingerbread whoopie pies around here and a leftover jar of fluff. Plenty for both a nostalgic sandwich and something for a more adult palate. Vodka definitely helps cut down the sweetness, as does the milk and coffee liqueur. What's left is a great cocktail and your choice of how much to lick off the rim with each sip. My rim may or may not have been completely naked by the time I was done. Cheers!

To make the syrup, add the sugar and water to a heavy bottom pot and cook on low heat for a couple of minutes, just until the sugar dissolves. Stir in the peanut butter and sea salt until fully combined. Allow to cool. Syrup can be stored in a lidded jar or bottle in the refrigerator for up to a week.

To make the cocktail, add the marshmallow fluff to a shallow bowl and heat in the microwave for 10 - 20 seconds until softened. Dip the rim of a cocktail glass in the warmed fluff and refrigerate for at least 5 minutes to set.

Pour some of the peanut butter syrup into a shallow bowl and dip the cooled rim of the glass in the syrup. Return to the refrigerator for an additional 5 minutes to set.

Add the marshmallow vodka, milk, chocolate liqueur, coffee liqueur and peanut butter syrup to a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice, shake well and pour into the prepared glass.
