Here's a tip from recipe creator CHEFWANDA: "Sometimes for extra fancy presentation, I melt a handful of chocolate chips in the microwave, and then rim the martini glass with the melted chocolate. Then, place the glass mouth-side down on parchment paper and place in the freezer. This gives the glass a candy rim and gives each sip extra chocolate flavor."
