Now, convention tells me I could make this with regular ole’ chocolate milk, but what fun would that be? NO FUN AT ALL! When I saw Silk’s new Nutchello on the shelves at the grocery store, I knew it was practically made for this German Chocolate Cake Martini!

I love all the flavors (Caramel Almond Cashew, Toasted Coconut and Cashew, and Rich Dark Chocolate and Walnuts), but the Rich Dark Chocolate + Walnuts is my favorite. It takes me back to my chocolate milk after school days. Only this version only has 90 calories and feels much more grown up somehow. It is SO ADDICTING you guys! It’s a must try on its own and a must have in this cocktail! This may be one of my favorite martini recipes!
