Let the kids have their cookies and milk before bed – but the adults can have these Chocolate Chip Shooters!
Dessert shots are one of my favorite things to break out after dinner. Maybe you’re too full from dinner but still want something a little sweet, or maybe you’re just not done with cocktails yet.
Coffee is usually the signal when you’re at someone’s house for dinner that the fun is over and it’s time to wind down right? Not that you can’t offer your friends coffee but I still like to pass out some shots just to keep things going for a little while longer.
This is a guy’s way of breaking out dessert. Throw a bag of good store bought cookies on the table and start mixing up the shots. That’s my way of doing it anyway. I do seem to have an effect on people around me when there’s cocktails going on…those who are friends with me know, saying no thank you isn’t really an option.
So when a friend of mine asked me to come up with a shot to have at his birthday party – you know I had lots of ideas. But he told me that it had to be something that he could serve to his buddy’s but all their wives too.
I had a bottle of 360 Double Chocolate flavored vodka that I have been wanting to try and this seemed like the prefect time to do it. 360 also makes a glazed doughnut flavor…something I’ll have to try in another dessert shot or martini for sure.
My first thought was a dessert shot. A dessert shot that the wives would love, but boozy enough for the men to like too. And this one fits the bill, it’s actually all booze. No fillers.
Amaretto, Bailey’s Irish Cream and chocolate vodka. If you don’t have chocolate vodka, you can substitute plain vodka and it’s still going to be great. But if you really want to kick up the chocolate flavor, definitely get the chocolate vodka. You can use it for a lot of drink recipes, not just this one.
It’s also pretty awesome just poured into a hot cup of coffee. So the next time you’re at someone’s house for dinner and they ask if you want coffee, you can tell them sure – with vodka.
