This chocolate martini recipe is so delicious and decadent that you’re going to hate me! Why? Because you are going to want to drink a lot of them. This delightful cocktail tastes like a boozy melted milk shake. So here’s my warning. Have one or two and be done. You’ll thank me in the morning.

Okay, so you won’t really hate me. You will love me because this rich, creamy and delicious cocktail will be your new first choice. You just have to apply some self discipline and only drink one. Or two. But never three. They’re 100% booze!

You have been warned. I will not be responsible if you consume more than two! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Helpful tips

  • Although I use Godiva chocolate liqueur in this recipe, the brand stopped making their liqueur. So, any chocolate liqueur will work.
  • I like to garnish this cocktail with chocolate sauce around the rim of the glass and then dip the rim in finely chopped dark chocolate.
  • For the garnish, use the chocolate of your choice but I prefer dark chocolate, like Dove brand. (Dark chocolate is my chocolate of choice to eat as candy, too!)
  • Dark chocolate also makes the garnish stand out more from the Godiva chocolate martini itself. Milk chocolate will look too much like the drink.
  • If you don’t have RumChata you could use Baileys Irish cream instead, but RumChata is definitely the way to go.

How to make the chocolate martini

Pre-step

Cut some dark chocolate into very small pieces and place them on a small plate. Stick your finger in chocolate sauce and run it around the rim of your glasses. Dip the rims into the chocolate pieces. Lift the glasses from the chocolate, gently shake any excess chocolate, right the glasses and set aside.

Fill your cocktail shaker half way with ice. As you measure each ingredient below, pour it into the cocktail shaker.

Step one

Gather the ingredients – Godiva chocolate liqueur, RumChata liqueur and caramel flavored vodka.

Step five

Cap your shaker and shake for at least 20 seconds.

Step six

Strain and divide between the martini glasses. Oh! And lookie loo, there’s more in the shaker! If this happens to you, grab a little glass and pour it in. I always love a sidecar of yumminess.

Notes

Helpful Tips
  • Although I use Godiva chocolate liqueur in this recipe, I have since found out they discontinued their liqueurs. Use any good chocolate liqueur.
  • I like to garnish this with chocolate sauce around the rim and then dipped in finely chopped chocolate.
  • Use chocolate of your choice but I prefer dark chocolate like the Dove brand. Dark chocolate is my chocolate of choice to eat too.
  • Using dark chocolate instead of milk is perfect because of the color difference between the Godiva chocolate martini and the garnish. Milk chocolate will look too much like the drink and not stand out as much.
  • If you don’t have RumChata you could use Baileys Irish cream, but RumChata is definitely the way to go.

  1. Yesss, I am so for taking a stand with you!!! Love this martini, but I also agree that sometimes it’s just tooooooo much in food styling when you put 100 extra items on top! I want to see what the actual food is that I’m looking at a recipe for, so I love the simplicity of this cocktail!

  2. I love me a good martini! Yum! And I love trying new flavors with those little airplane bottles. Great work on this martini!

  3. Yup, I hate you, but only because you didn’t invite me round for a BUCKET full of chocolate martinis. What do you mean you don’t even know me, we’d soon become friends over chocolate martinis!!!

  4. Oh perfection! These are just brilliant! Don’t worry–no one could ever hate you with those beauties ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for sharing, I may have found my Holiday drink right here!

  5. I made this in advance of a holiday party, and I must say, it is amazing! The party is coming up and I know everyone is going to love it!!!

  6. I can totally see how it would be hard to stop at 2!! This Godiva Chocolate Martini is so tasty! I would rather drink this than have dessert! It cures my sweet tooth cravings.

  7. Just in time for the holidays too, this looks delicious! I am never going to say no to something with chocolate, YUM! Thank you for sharing!

    1. Kelly, this makes two cocktails depending on the size of your martini glass. If they are on the small size, it will make 2 1/2. Hope this helps. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. I used a micro grater for the chocolate. Since I donโ€™t drink much or often, I didnโ€™t have martini glasses but these worked nice for a โ€˜doubleโ€™ ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Hehe. I’m glad to hear that Becca! When I want a decadent drink, this is my go to. I’m glad you enjoyed it and took the time to let me know.

  9. Best ever chocolate martini I’ve ever had & I’ve tried many!!! So rich & decadant like an after dinner dessert drink. Heed the warning to stop @ 2 as it is difficult to do, soooooo delish!

    1. Thanks Janie! I really appreciate it. When hubby drinks these, he keeps saying, “it’s like candy.” I have to remind him that it’s also very boozy! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for taking the time to comment and rate it!

    1. Thicker than a normal martini glass? On that post, I use a normal martini glass, a smaller coupe (in the background – I got that one at Amazon) and the bubble looking bottomed martini glass – I got at Crate and Barrel – it’s called a “Verve Martini Glass.” Hope that helps, Cathy.

  10. Found your receipel last summer and have been enjoying them ever since. Also have had “Girls Night In” with a pitch or 2 of these so now the girls are also hooked. I had to give the receipe to a very young bartender who wasn’t familiar with it and he did a great job! So the spread of this drink goes on and on!

    1. How very fun, Liz. Thank you so much for letting me know and I’m glad that you and your friends enjoyed it! It’s one of my most sought after drinks when I have a party.
