Why settle for a chocolate martini when you can have a GERMAN CHOCOLATE CAKE Martini? 

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!

How to Make a Chocolate Martini 

This chocolate cake martini is so easy to make. Making this drink for dessert is definitely easier than making a whole cake!

  1. Add chocolate almond milk (or regular chocolate milk), coconut vodka/rum, and Frangelico (hazelnut liqueur) into a cocktail shaker with ice, and shake to combine.
  2. Combine chopped walnuts and shredded coconut in a blender and pulse into a fine mixture.
  3. Dip martini glasses into the chocolate syrup, then into the walnut mixture.
  4. Swirl chocolate syrup into the glasses (that extra chocolate in their really makes it feel like cake…YUM!).
  5. Then pour the cocktail mixture into the glasses and serve!

This drink looks so pretty, and will definitely have you craving actual chocolate cake, but these chocolate martinis are just as good!
