A Fun Dessert Shot Recipe!

These Whiskey Chocolate Cake Shots are really super tasty. That’s really the bottom line, here. BUT, they are also super fun for parties, happy hours and holidays like Valentine’s Day!

Maybe you’re not a baker and just can’t get it together to make a Valentine’s Day dessert? Just shake up a few batches of these dessert shots, grab a box of good chocolate and you’re good to go.

Trust me, my friends, these are date night worthy shots.

How Do You Make Chocolate Cake Shots?

Start by grabbing a good size, 2 ounce shot glass. These are dessert shots so you want a little bigger glass than a 1 ounce or 1 1/2 ounce shot glass. We want nice, big, bold chocolate dessert shot glasses!

Next it’s time to rim the shot glasses. You can do this way ahead of time so it gives you plenty of time to whip together that wonderful dinner that you’re making…(tips for easy dinner ideas down below!)

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.

Of course you can switch up the color of the sprinkles, too! 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
  • 1/2 Bailey’s Irish Cream
  • 1/2 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.
