Chocolate Liqueur

Chocolate liqueur falls into three categories: chocolate liqueur, chocolate creme liqueur and creme de cacao. Most are lightly sweet and are consumed on their own after dinner. Chocolate liqueur is made from a base of either whisky or vodka and is often used in baking or cooking as well as mixing cocktails due to its alcohol content. Chocolate cream liqueur is the base of chocolate liqueur but with cream and often other flavor profiles like vanilla.
