There really is a day for everything!
Then I found out that today is National Chocolate Mint Day and I was saved!
This is really like having a Thin Mint cookie in a martini form! Very rich and definitely a dessert cocktail, I really enjoyed this drink. I’ll have to hide a stash of Thin Mints in the freezer so I can make this again later on!

Yield: 1 cocktail
1 1/2 ounces heavy cream
1 ounce Godiva Milk Chocolate Liqueur
1 ounce vodka
1 ounce Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup (plus extra for rim)

1. Dip rim of glass into a plate of chocolate syrup and then dip into a plate of crumbled chocolate cookies.
