The best thing is to serve it in chilled martini glasses, garnished with a mini Snickers.
Tips and Tricks
- Chill Your Glass: A chilled martini glass enhances the flavors and keeps your drink cool longer.
- Shake, Don’t Stir: Use a cocktail shaker filled with ice cubes for a smoother, well-blended drink.
- Syrup Drizzling: To step up the presentation, drizzle chocolate syrup on the inside of the glass before pouring the cocktail.
- Peanut Butter Twist: For extra richness, add a spoonful of peanut butter into your cocktail shaker.
- Hazelnut Heaven: Switch Irish cream liqueur with hazelnut liqueur for a twist.

Common Problems and How to Avoid Them
- Too Sweet: If you find the drink too sugary, balance it with a splash of lemon juice.
- Not Well-Mixed: To avoid this, make sure to shake vigorously in the cocktail shaker.
Tips for Making This Recipe with Kids
Since this is an alcoholic drink, the kids can’t consume it. However, they can have fun helping you garnish the glasses. Teach them how to delicately dip the sides of the glass in caramel sauce and then in crushed peanuts.
- Crushed Peanuts: For a crunch in every sip.
- Whipped Cream: A dollop on top with a drizzle of caramel sauce for added richness.
- Mini Snickers: Use cocktail skewers to place a small piece of Snickers candy bar on top.
