Shots That Taste Like Chocolate Cake

While most shots have a bitter aftertaste, leaving a sour flavor in your mouth for the rest of the night, you won’t find this to be a problem while trying out these delicious, chocolatey shooters. 

The only problem is, you may find it hard to stop throwing them back! Remember to drink responsibly.

1. Chocolate Cake Shot Recipe (Thrillist)

  • Vodka
  • Frangelico Liqueur
  • Lemon
  • White Sugar

We’ll kick things off on this list with the classic Chocolate Cake shot which most bartenders associate with the name, made with vodka and Frangelico.

When combining chocolate-flavored products, replicating the flavor of chocolate cake to create a shot seems to be a feasible task.

This chocolate shot, on the other hand, tastes just like the genuine thing, despite the fact that it actually contains no cocoa.

In this simple concoction, Vodka and Frangelico are combined to produce the illusion of a liquid chocolate cake. With a sugared lip on the glass, you’ve got a sweet, delicious shooter which even shot sceptics will enjoy!

2. Chocolate Cake Shot 2 (Homemade Food Junkie)

  • Frangelico Liqueur
  • Vanilla Vodka
  • White Sugar
  • Lemon
  • Syrup

This chocolate cake shot, much like the previous entry on this list, blends Frangelico liqueur and vodka with a touch of sugary lemon. The difference? Vanilla vodka is used within this recipe, and syrup is used to line the shot glass.

Whether it’s your birthday or someone else’s, keep the party going with this charming birthday cake shot.

Alternatively, perhaps you simply want to cleanse your palate with a chocolate cake shot on a normal day with no celebrations needed. We say, go for it!

3. Chocolate Cake Shot 3 (Tipsy Bartender)

  • Chocolate Vodka
  • Irish Cream
  • Cake Flavored Vodka
  • Chocolate Liqueur
  • Sprinkles

With this alcoholic Chocolate Cake Shot, it’s time to get serious with your dessert drink skills! Unlike the previous two entries on this list, this delicious shot actually contains the flavors of chocolate and cake.

This yummy shooter is perfect for a birthday party due to its use of whipped cream and sprinkles, but is also great for any form of gathering or celebration.

All you need to do is shake the alcoholic ingredients together in a glass filled with ice, before straining into a chocolate syrup and sprinkle decorated shot glass. This is a shooter that looks just as great as it tastes.

4. German Chocolate Cake Shot (Tipsy Bartender)

  • Chocolate Liqueur
  • Butterscotch Schnapps
  • Coconut Rum
  • Jagermeister

If you enjoy dessert shots with just as much chocolate taste as they radiate alcoholic goodness, you simply must try these German Chocolate Cake Shots.

They look great, taste great, and will make you wish that you had made more! Again, this is another chocolate flavored shot that requires sweet liqueur in its recipe, including butterscotch flavored schnapps and chocolate liqueur.

This is a sweet treat that can be enjoyed by anyone and everyone (providing they are 21 or over, of course).

5. Chocolate Birthday Cake Shot (Instructables)

  • Cake Flavored Vodka
  • Chocolate Vodka
  • Chocolate Syrup
  • Whipped Cream
  • Candle (optional)

Whether it is your birthday or someone else’s, this Chocolate Birthday Cake shot is a must-have for anyone celebrating becoming another year older.

The added candle will be the cherry on top of the cake… or, well, the candle on top of the shot.

It is so easy to create at home: all you need to do is combine the cake flavored vodka and the chocolate vodka in a shot glass, and top with some whipped cream, chocolate syrup, and a candle!

Try using chocolate whipped cream for extra chocolatey goodness.

6. Cookies And Cream Shooters (Tipsy Bartender)

  • Chocolate Vodka
  • White Chocolate Liqueur
  • Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Oreos
  • Whipped Cream

Do chocolate cookies count as chocolate cake? Probably not… well, definitely not. However, these shooters taste just like a mouthful of cake batter, and will cause everyone who tries them to fall in love with you (and the shot).

The secret to creating this cake batter/cookie dough texture is by blending the flavored alcohol (the chocolate vodka and white chocolate liqueur) with some vanilla ice cream and Oreos, thickening the mixture.

The smoothness and added crunch to this shooter is absolutely delicious!

Chocolate Cakes (And Other Desserts) That Taste Like Shots

Next up, we have the next best thing to chocolate cake: alcoholic chocolate cake. Double the flavor, double the fun! 

These mini treats are great to serve at large parties and gatherings, and everybody is going to love them.

Consider bringing along some candles if it is a loved one’s birthday, and stick a lit one in one of the shots! Let’s get the party started.

7. Chocolate Cake Whiskey Shots (Oh Bite It)

Whiskey: Good. Shots: Good. Chocolate cake: Good. 

Chocolate Cake Whiskey Shots? The best.

Each booze-soaked shooter will warm you up from within, and between the chocolatey sweetness and the delightful rush, you’ll wish you could keep eating till you couldn’t any longer (or, at least, until you run out of cake).

Each person will need to take a shot glass and scoop out their own shot from the cake, creating more fun than ever before!

8. Chocolate Bourbon Cake Shots (The Baking Fairy)

Chocolate Bourbon Cake shots are a great way to commemorate a birthday or special event, and they’re also a real blast to make. They are perfect in appearance and flavor, and will undoubtedly astonish your loved ones.

These mini marvels may appear to be difficult to create, but they are actually quite simple: prepare a little sheet cake and cut out cake circles using a shot glass.

The spicy bourbon and sweet, sugary buttercream are the perfect complement to each other.

9. Oreo Shot Glasses (

Again, we may have to ignore the fact that Oreos are not chocolate cakes for this entry… but, while turning a blind eye, you can enjoy this delicious dessert-based shot glass!

These edible shot glasses are totally Instagram worthy, and taste awesome.

Have your Oreo and drink it too with these grown-up versions of your favourite after-school snacks. Oreos are crumbled and baked before the rims are dunked into melted chocolate and more crumbled Oreos.

Finish the dessert in your own way by deciding which alcohol to pour into it! We recommend a sweet liqueur, or even a shot of Baileys. The decision is yours!

10. Drunken Dirt Worm Cups (Tipsy Bartender)

Who remembers making dirt worm cakes when they were a kid? Or, who remembers eating actual worms as a kid? Well, this shot tastes a lot better than the latter, we promise.

These Drunken Dirt Worm Cups are a must-try for anybody looking for the perfect dessert shooter.

The combination of sweet liqueur, Irish Cream, chocolate pudding and crushed up cookies make for a delightful treat, perfect for adults who still think they are children. The gummy worms complete the look.

Pudding And Jello Shots That Taste Like Chocolate Cake

Who doesn’t enjoy a semi-solid shooter that can be eaten rather than swigged? 

A Jello Shot is booze-infused jello, while a Pudding Shot is booze-infused pudding, for those who aren’t sure. You can make them in a variety of tastes and colors, as well as with various types of alcohol.

11. German Chocolate Pudding Shots (Pudding Shot Madness)

Nothing comes close to a truly delectable pudding shot, especially one that tastes like a German Chocolate Cake.

These shots combine the flavors of coconut, coffee, and caramel to create the ultimate mini tasty treats.

The alcohol content comes from the coconut rum and the caramel or espresso flavored whiskey cream, while the chocolate pudding and whipped topping create the gelatin texture that we all love.

Just make sure you hide these treats from the kids!

12. German Chocolate Cake Vodka Shots (The Homestead Survival)

Next up, we have more German Chocolate Cake goodness! This time, the dessert comes in the form of a jello shot. 

Soirees, birthday gatherings, dinner parties, or even just a fun night in at home are all great settings to offer these tiny mini flavored chunks of delight, stacked with gorgeous brown and orange layers of chocolate and butterscotch.

The cake flavored vodka gives the shot the signature German Chocolate Cake flavors. Absolutely beautiful!

Non-Alcoholic Shots That Taste Like Chocolate Cake

14. Red Velvet Cake Milkshake Shooters (The Cake Merchant)

We will be looking at some extremely lovely mini milkshakes in shot glasses next on this list. They’re bright pink in color, and the best part is that they taste exactly like cake!

To make the shot glasses, coat the rims in liquefied white chocolate before coating them with tiny heart sprinkles.

Then, to make the delicious thick milkshake, combine the ice cream, milk, cake mix, and other ingredients in a blender. We’ve never seen such adorable little shooters!

15. Quick & Easy Brownie And Chocolate Mousse Shot Glass Desserts (Langs Chocolates)

These velvety desserts are smooth and delicious. You can either eat them slowly, using a spoon to scoop out the insides, or you can gulp them down in one go.

Of course, you could add alcoholic components to the mousse if you wish to create a boozier variation, but by using the original recipe, you can create these mini desserts for a kids’ party. The decision is yours!

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are The Best Liqueurs For Chocolate Cake Shots?

Hazelnut liqueurs are rich and earthy, and are utilised in a variety of cocktails and shots, such as Chocolate Cake shots.

When it comes to making cake-flavored shots, Frangelico is the most widely used hazelnut flavored liqueur, hence why it’s so popularly used in chocolate cake shots.

Frangelico has a delicious roasted nutty flavor with a foundation of creamy chocolate, mild vanilla, and even a Graham cracker aftertaste.

In some varieties of Chocolate Cake shots, vanilla vodka and cake-flavored vodka are also commonly used.

What Is A Chocolate Cake Shot Made Of?

Since there are no actual chocolate ingredients in this drink, your standard Chocolate Cake shot is produced with a deceiving formula. This shot is created with vodka and hazelnut liqueur and garnished with a sweet lemon.

It tastes exactly like a sweet and soft chocolate cake in the form of liquid when combined, showcasing the incredible power of flavor science.

How To Drink A Chocolate Cake Shot?

While drinking a typical chocolate cake shot – the transparent ones usually made with vodka and flavored liqueur – you may be given a slice of lemon coated in sugar along with it.

Before throwing the shot back, you will need to suck the sugar coated lemon, and do not swallow yet. With the juice still in your mouth, take the shot.

Every flavor from the lemon and the shot will combine in your mouth, somehow perfectly mimicking the taste of a slice of chocolate cake.
