Why You’ll Love These Chocolate Cake Shots

These Chocolate Cake Shots are really so delicious. Sweet, chocolate flavored whiskey shots that also pack a punch.

These dessert shots are fun to make and fun to drink, so why not set them out with dessert at your next party? Or if you’re not serving dessert at all, these chocolate cake shots will do.

How Do You Make Chocolate Cake Shots?

You’ll need large, 2 ounce shot glasses to make these drinks. These are dessert shots so you want a little bigger glass than a 1 ounce or 1 1/2 ounce shot glass.

Whiskey Chocolate Cake Shots are a dessert shot for parties
  • Rim The Glasses: You can do this step ahead of time if you’re making a lot for a party. Dip the rim of a shot glass into a plate with corn syrup, getting it nice and thick all around the edges so that the sprinkles have something to stick to. Now dip the shot glass in chocolate sprinkles, pressing them into the syrup so they stick.
  • Make The Drink: Add chocolate milk, Irish Cream, chocolate liquor and whiskey to a shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into shot glasses.

Of course you can switch up the color of the sprinkles for these chocolate cake shots. Grab any color you like to go with a certain holiday or birthday, maybe multi-color. Really, anything goes. They don’t have to be these sprinkles, either.

Any decoration you like that will stick to the rim of the glass will work. Those little tiny colorful balls…perfect for birthdays, gold or silver balls for New Year’s Eve, maybe? You get the point, anything that’s not too heavy will work!

Like we mentioned, you can make these dessert shots instead of dessert or right along with dessert! We have some really easy dessert ideas for all you non-bakers out there like me, head over to our Dessert Menu to check them out!

These Whiskey Chocolate Cake Shots are the perfect Valentine’s Day or special occasion cocktail! Serve these dessert shots instead of making dessert, or right alongside dessert!



  • 5 ounces chocolate milk (store bought, or make your own)
  • 2 ounces whiskey
  • 1 ounce Bailey’s Irish Cream
  • 1 ounce Godiva liqueur

For Rimming the Shot Glasses:

  • Corn syrup
  • Chocolate sprinkles


  1. Pour the corn syrup onto a shallow plate, making a fairly thick layer. Add the sprinkles to another shallow plate. Grab a shot glass and turn the rim around in the corn syrup, making a thick edge for the sprinkles to stick to.
  2. Dip the shot glass into the sprinkles, making a thick edge like you see on our shot glasses in the post. This is really just for appearance though, so any way you do it will work! Repeat with the other 3 shot glasses and set aside.
  3. Add the ingredients for the shot into a shaker with just a little ice. Shake very well until ice crystals form and then pour into the prepared glasses.
