Are you the type of person that would rather have a sweet and creamy cocktail instead of dessert? Then this is the martini for you. It’s a vodka based martini with nutty Frangelico hazelnut liqueur, dark creme de cacao and cream. The flavor is a fun play on Nutella, the chocolate hazelnut spread that seems to be universally adored.

1 ounce vodka
1 ounce hazelnut liqueur such as Frangelico
1/2 ounce dark creme de cacao
1 ounce light cream (half and half) or almond milk
Add vodka, hazelnut liqueur, creme de cacao and cream to cocktail shaker. Add ice to cocktail shaker; cover and shake vigorously. Strain into chilled cocktail glass.
