Easter is coming, and you might think that the mudslide of solid eatin’ chocolate which is about to engulf you will be enough. Think again, gentle reader, for we are proud to present not one but 47 recipes, for chocolate cocktails which means you can drink the stuff at the same time you scoff. How’s that for ergonomics? Our researchers toiled in the depths of the Interweb to bring you three sites with glorious recipes, so let’s waste not further time!
