Happy Friday, my friends! This has been a WEEK. Super buys, full of running around, and crammed to the brim with work. I am so fortunate that I love what I do, and it often doesn’t feel like work, but I for sure am in need of a weekend and a break. Tell me what you are doing this weekend to relax. Especially if you have kids. Tell me what you do to take care of yourself and squeeze in some relaxation so you don’t burn out. It’s okay if that includes one of these Baileys Chocolate Martinis.


Baileys is one of those fan favorite liqueurs that blends deliciously in anything from coffee to dessert. The popular Irish cream can add such a rich and creamy texture to even your most boring cup of coffee. Who doesn’t love a little Irish Whiskey in their coffee? Try this Salted Caramel Irish Coffee and you’ll totally see what I mean.

I never met an Baileys recipe I didn’t love, but one of my very favorite Baileys combinations is with chocolate. Serve up a slice of this Baileys Poke Cake at your ladies night. Can’t get enough? Make this No Bake Baileys Chocolate Pie. And if you love this chocolate martini recipe, try my Chocolate Covered Cherry Martini next time you’re craving a dessert in a glass.


  • Baileys Irish Cream (of course). There are other brands out there, but Baileys is a tried and true classic.
  • A couple ounces of vodka
  • A couple more ounces of creme de cocoa
  • Chocolate sauce, whipped cream and some yummy shaved chocolate for garnish
ingredients for chocolate baileys martini


  • In two coupe glasses, carefully drizzle chocolate sauce around the inside.
  • Combine four ounces of Baileys Irish Cream, two ounces vodka and two ounces creme de cocoa in a martini shaker and, you know, shake.
  • Pour into your two chocolatey lined coupe glasses.
  • Top with whipped cream and some gorgeous chocolate shavings and cheers!

Chocolate shavings are simple to make. Use a veggie peeler and gently run across a long chocolate bar. It’ll fancy up any dessert, cocktail, Thursday night, you name it.

Looking for other fun Baileys recipes? This Bailey’s Fudge or Bailey’s Dessert Fluff are sure to be crowd pleasers. And why keep it just at dessert? Make Baileys Spiked French Toast for brunch and prepared to be wowed.

    What a wonderful idea! Sounds delicious an I’m sure will taste a whole lot better. Something I can most definitely get my lips behind… or in front, whichever. And multiple time too.
    Thank you.

    Great recipe , thank you!
    If I may suggest using Vanilla flavored vodka such as Pinnacle Whipped Vanilla in lieu of plain….

    • Lisa Longley says

      Glad you liked it!

  4. Mary Lou Hudman says

    What is the chocolate sauce that you use?

    • Lisa Longley says

      I used Godiva chocolate topping. It’s thick and lines the glass perfectly.

  5. Lynn Bast says

    Do you chill each ingredient or mix with ice prior to pouring?

    • Lisa Longley says

      Either would work well here. I, personally, would go with chilling your ingredients to avoid getting small pieces of ice in the drink.

  6. Dorothea says

    I made this but we love Carolyn’s best so used it and was delicious. Thank you and I’m not big on drinking mixed drinks. I give it a 10 being the highest.

  8. Yolanda Tipton says

    What is the chocolate sauce made of?

    • Lisa Longley says

      It’s a store bought sauce for garnishing. But you could use our Fudge Sauce recipe.

  9. Holly Szklarz says
