Oh yes! Chocolate Cake Shooters seriously taste just like chocolate cake! Hazelnut liqueur, vanilla vodka and lemon juice come together for a surprising flavor explosion. The perfect party treat for Valentine’s Day, birthdays and more!
Happy Valentine’s Day! To me, Valentine’s Day has always been about one thing, and one thing only — dessert. Specifically, chocolate dessert.
Whether it’s a box of truffles, a fluffy cream-filled eclair or a big hunk of cake, chocolate should be at the top of everyone’s one-true-pairing list on February 14, date or no date.
If you forgot to take care of dessert tonight, then I’ve got just the recipe for you: shots that taste just like chocolate cake!
These Chocolate Cake Shooters are a totally unconventional way to finish off a romantic Valentine’s meal, but so super fun, too. They’re also great if you’re just enjoying a movie night with a few Galentines. They’d also be a fantastic idea for a birthday party!
Your sweetheart and/or galentines will love these Chocolate Cake Shooters. They’ve got some serious flavor magic.
I remember the first time I had them: a friend’s birthday party at a bar when someone ordered a round of them. When they came out a transparent, golden liquid, I didn’t believe they would taste like chocolate. You must taste to believe!
These shots are all about flavor chemistry. Hazelnut, vanilla and lemon don’t seem like they’d taste like chocolate when combined, but they definitely do! It’s so weirdly good — trust me!
To make them, you’ll need hazelnut liqueur (like Frangelico) and vanilla vodka, plus lemon wedges and some sugar. Roll the lemon wedges in the sugar and serve them with the shooters. To enjoy, you’ll suck the juice from a sugar-coated lemon wedge before taking the shot.
Next time you’re craving some chocolate cake — whether it’s Valentine’s or not — these shooters will do just the trick! Cheers! //susannah
