This was great, the only change I made was using Baileys caramel Irish cream, it's a new liquor & I was looking for something to mix it with. Will definately have this again!

I thought this had way to much of a taste of vodka or it was just way too strong. I didn't quite understand the point of adding ice or water to the cup. They can just be put in the freezer to get cold beforehand. The 1 Tblsp. of chocolate would be way too much to. I found, from another recipe, it is easier to just dab the rim of the cup in some chocolate then to try to drizzle it all over the cup. It is a lot less messy. I ended up having to fix this, to cut through the strong alcohol taste.

Oh so good! I used regular (not white) creme de cacao, and Merry's caramel irish cream liqueur. This made it much more like the Milky Way candy bar!

This is a delicious drink! I like it full strength, but if it is too strong for you, reduce the vodka slightly. I added a 1/4 cup milk instead if water, used the Bailey's Irish Cream with Caramel, and a small chunk of a milky way candy bar in the bottom of the glass.

Yum. Yum. YUM! So good. But, wickedly sweet. This is more like a dessert cocktail, not something you'd want to drink one after the other. I'll tell you, they are hard to resist after the first. Even my husband loved it.

We sampled two different chocolate martini's for a chocolate themed party, and this was the hand's down favorite. It's powerful, so I think just a taste is the best way to enjoy. We made the full servings but split them between more people. A very 'chocolatey' martini, creamy and sweet. The chocolate drizzle made a very pretty presentation.

Really good, but strong!!! I drizzelled caramel syrup inside the glass along with the chocolate. I also had to cut it in half for my husband with some cream, he said it was too strong for him ;-)

Yummy! After reading some of the other reviews tho', I'd like to try the Irish Creme with caramel in it sometime.
