Chocolate Liqueur

Chocolate Liqueur

I’ve been making this for five years now after my aunt brought it to our Christmas Eve celebration and sent us each home with a bottle. It’s perfect to sip on after a Christmas Eve dinner or while you’re opening presents on Christmas morning. Cheers from our family to yours!


  • 1/3 c. sugar
  • 1/4. c. water
  • 1/4 c. cocoa
  • 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 c. heavy cream
  • 1 c. vodka
  • 2 tsp. vanilla


  1. Make note that you’re going to want to double this recipe right away.
  2. In a 2 qt. saucepan, stir together the sugar, water and cocoa. Cook until all ingredients have dissolved, stirring until well-combined.
  3. Remove from heat.
  4. Stir in the condensed milk, cream, vodka and vanilla.
  5. Chill (both the mixture and you).
  6. Enjoy over ice!
  7. If you’ve stored it for a few days in the fridge and notice some separation, shake the bottle or stir the liqueur prior to serving.

Recommendations for transferring:

  • Place a glass bottle over a plate in the sink.
  • Use a funnel and pourĀ slowly. It will fill much faster than you think!
  • Top with a festive cork for the holidays.
