Optional: Drizzle vertical lines of chocolate and/or caramel sauce on the inside of 2 martini glasses. Chill in the freezer until ready to use.
For the cocktail: Add all ingredients to a shaker and fill with ice. Shake until chilled and strain into martini glasses.
Garnish with whipped cream and mini snickers. Enjoy!
I used caramel flavored Irish Cream in my martini to give it an extra caramel kick, but you can use plain Irish Cream if that is what you have on hand.
This dessert martini recipe calls for a splash of half-and-half; you can use either fat free or regular if you like. If you want your cocktail a little less strong, simply add more half-and-half. If you like your cocktail stiff, skip the half-and-half all together.
To decorate the glasses, I like to use chocolate and/or caramel sauce. Simply drizzle the sauce(s) on the inside of the glass and then place the glass in the freezer for at least 10 minutes. You can skip this step if jazzed up martini glasses aren’t your thing. I have included a homemade chocolate sauce recipe below, but feel free to use store-bought.
I didn’t take any photos of this, but whipped cream on top is an excellent addition, along with some coarsely chopped snickers bars.
