From Russia with love

With soups, stews and a little bit of vodka, this dinner will keep even the Russian winter at bay. Tuck into a feast fit for the Tsar!

Rolo Vodka

Lots of tots of chocolatey goodness.

Recipe from: 10 August 2011
Preparation time: 10 mins
Cooking time: 0 mins


  • 150
  • 100
    Rolo's (2 packets)
Servings: Change Serving


Grab a sealable bottle (you can use your vodka bottle if it only has about 150ml left – I used a Grolsch Beer Bottle).
Chop the Rolo’s in half so that they fit through the bottle opening.
Add the vodka to the bottle (If you are using a separate one).
Boil some water, and add to a pot/bowl/jug big enough to fit the bottle you are using to make the vodka in.
Place the bottle in the boiled water, and give it a shake every now and again to mix the chocolate into the vodka.
Serve in shooter glasses, once the chocolate has completely melted into the vodka.

Chef notes:
You can use 100g of any chocolate, as long as it doesn't contain fruit, nuts or biscuits.
Enjoy, and drink responsibly, as this mixture can get quite potent.
