The Diva Steals a Chocolate Kiss with Chocolate Covered Berries and The Moo Cow

Krista Davis is stopping by for Drinks with Read to match her new book, The Diva Steals a Chocolate Kiss with not one, but two, perfect drinks...


An all-new tale in which chocolate is the kiss of death…

Domestic Diva Sophie Winston is in charge of the sweetest event in Old Town this summer. Amore Chocolates is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary with a chocolate tasting at the mansion of the company’s CEO, Joe Merano—and Sophie is running the show. With cookies, candy, and five kinds of chocolate cake, it’s a chocolate lover’s dream! But when Joe goes missing, the celebration becomes bittersweet. And when Sophie discovers the body of a competing chocolatier in the guesthouse, the event turns downright deadly.

As if that wasn’t enough, Sophie’s been receiving daily boxes of sweet treats. After ruling out her new beau and her exes, Sophie wonders if someone’s trying to send her a message—and if she’s next on a chocoholic’s hit list…

Includes delicious recipes and entertaining tips.

Chocolate Covered Berries and Moo Cow

It’s not terribly surprising that most alcoholic drinks involving chocolate are after dinner drinks. The great thing is that they don’t require a lot of different kinds of alcohol nor is there any complicated trick to mixing them. They’re pour and stir.

I will mention one drink recipe in THE DIVA STEALS A CHOCOLATE KISS that is out of season but so good that I had to include it, the Chocolate Kiss. Hot chocolate that is so good you’ll wish it were winter again.

Chocolate Covered Berries and Moo Cow should be served in small cordial glasses. If you don’t have enough matching ones, then mix and match. The glasses are small and will look very cute together. In my diva books, there’s a little tip at the beginning of every chapter. Here’s one for you. Can’t find anything to measure an ounce to make a drink? Use a measuring spoon. The tablespoon will be close enough to an ounce that you can get away with it.

Chocolate Covered Berries
(shorter glass in the photo)

1 ounce chocolate liqueur (like Godiva)
1 ounce Chambord
1 ounce Irish cream

Pour the liqueurs into a small glass. Swirl and enjoy.

Moo Cow
(taller glass in photo)

2 ounces chocolate vodka
2 ounces Baileys Irish Cream

Pour into a small glass and stir. 

Note that each of these makes one drink. All the more reason to make yourself one when you’re reading the book. Cheers!
