Notes

Alcohol selection: Everyone is different and so choose according to your taste.
 
Rims: Coat rims with cocoa, sugar crystals (colored or not), shaved chocolate, or other sprinkles of your choosing.  Or leave uncoated if desired.
 
Servings: We did not add a number of servings because some may want to keep it all for themselves.  🙂
 
Toppings:  Toppings can be anything you’d like…..Andes candies pieces, shaved chocolate, cocoa powder, a dollop of whipped cream, or other sprinkles.
 
Chocolate sauce can also be drizzled inside the glass.  We like to use Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Sauce.
