Easy Baileys Cocktail Recipe 

Irish cream and Frangelico are two of my favorites. They’re a match made in creamy martini heaven. And things only get better when Nutella is involved.

Combining Irish Cream with Frangelico is a natural pairing. Frangelico is a liqueur made with toasted hazelnuts, brown sugar, cinnamon, cocoa and vanilla extract. Those are some of my favorite flavors and ingredients, and Frangelico lends a rich hazelnut flavor to the drink.

This chocolate martini recipe is an automatic win for me because it uses Irish cream. I even started making my own Homemade Irish Cream. I love DIY projects that take literally 1 minute to blend together and help me save a little money.

To rim your martini glass for this drink, you’re going to have to dip your finger in Nutella. Literally caught with your hand in the cookie jar, or the Nutella jar, is okay here. I tried rimming the glass by putting the Nutella on with a spoon, but it wasn’t working very well.

Normally it’s jars of chocolate peanut butter my fingers are caught in, but I won’t say no to Nutella.

Crushed graham crackers adorn the side of the Nutella-rimmed glass. It’s a good thing I was drinking this at home rather than at a swanky bar because I was literally licking the side of the glass. Classy.

If there’s a way to work graham crackers into a recipe, stuck to the side of a martini glass via Nutella is a great effort.

The graham crackers and Nutella, the creamy factor from the Irish cream; with hazelnut, cinnamon, and vanilla notes from the Frangelico, these martinis go down so easily.

Optionally, you could add a splash of coffee if you’re into Creamy Boozy Coffee drinks like I am.

How to Make a Chocolate Martini with Baileys

This is the best chocolate martini recipe and it’s so easy to make! Simply rim a martini glass with Nutella (I found using my fingers to be the easiest). Place the graham cracker crumbs on a plate and time the glass with them. 

Add equal parts Frangelico and Baileys to the glass and stir gently to combine. 

Can I Prep This in Advance? 

If you want to make multiple chocolate martinis for a group of people, you can prep the glasses ahead of time. However, I’d wait to combine the Baileys and Frangelico because this cocktail tastes best fresh.

Tips for Making a Chocolate Martini with Baileys

This recipe makes one cocktail, but you can easily scale it to serve a crowd. It’s a simple combination of one part Baileys to one part Frangelico, so you can measure out larger quantities as needed. 

If you don’t have graham crackers where you live, try using a neutral-flavored, slightly sweet biscuit or cookie instead. (A digestive biscuit is likely the closest thing in Europe). 

If you don’t typically keep graham crackers on hand, don’t fret. You can use the leftovers to make Graham Cracker Toffee, Cheesecake Bars, Chocolate Chip Cookie S’mores Bars, Boston Cream Icebox Cake, and more!

  1. i’d be licking the side of that glass too, nice one Averie! I’m thinking i might break my coffee fast with that boozy iced coffee tomorrow. The perfect entry to the weekend :))

    1. You need to break the coffee fast with this indeed! Good for you for doing that. I am doing better on my coffee than I was about 3-6 mos ago when it was at an all time high!

  2. Love this – I’m happy to have any excuse to put my finger in the Nutella jar!

  3. I have a big bottle of Frangelico sitting on my bar – I often just drink it straight as a fun after dinner drink (um, should I admit that??), but I am absolutely trying this version next time. Holy yum, Averie – love it!!

    1. I love your admission. I do the same with Baileys :) But together, the Fran and the Baileys are so good!

    2. Frangelico is dandy with bourbon, too. I like a little in a Manhattan, finding the rich nuttiness a nice complement to the warm caramel note of the whiskey. It also tames the sweetness of the maraschino cherry garnish.

  4. It’s a girly drink :D I love chocolate and nutella. wow, it must be delicious.

  5. A boozy Nutella drink? Hell yes! I could’ve really used this on Wednesday – shit day at work. Oh well – I’ll just have to make this all weekend!

  6. Minus the nutella and graham crackers I drink baileys and frangelico together on a weekly basis, it is by far my favorite combo ever!!!

  7. You’re amazing, Averie. Boozy liquid dessert = a very happy me. I’d have been right there with you, gnawing and licking at the Nutella and graham cracker crumbs on the rim of the glass. I have no shame, obviously. I’m in awe of how gorgeous your photos are. I’m terrible at photographing drinks!

    1. Thanks for the compliments, Nancy. I won’t lie, drinks can be tricky to photograph. The glare from the liquid and the glass and all the reflectiveness and light bouncing can be a challenge but when everything clicks, it’s all worth it :)

  8. Oh man, love me some Frangelico. That stuff is soooo tasty! I love using it in baked goods for a little hazelnut flavoring, too :)
