The Toblerone chocolate bar was invented in Switzerland in 1908. It’s made with milk chocolate, nougat, almonds and honey and for years has been a go-to choice for chocoholics and duty-free shoppers. Turns out, you can also drink it—or something like it, at least, thanks to this Toblerone cocktail recipe. That’s great news for anyone who prefers their candy bars in boozier, more potable form.
The Toblerone cocktail is a rich after-dinner drink inspired by the iconic Swiss chocolate that is nutty, creamy and decadent. It features three liqueurs: Kahlúa, which is produced in Mexico and made from rum, sugar, and arabica coffee; Frangelico, an Italian liqueur flavored with hazelnuts; and Baileys, the popular Irish cream liqueur. Heavy cream and honey syrup join the three alcoholic ingredients for a touch more texture and sweetness, while a chocolate-coated rim and a garnish of Toblerone chocolate shavings complete the indulgent recipe.
This isn’t a health drink. But it is a liquid interpretation of the classic candy bar and a great opportunity to drink your dessert without visiting the candy aisle or airport. Make this sweet, satisfying cocktail after dinner or whenever your sweet tooth cannot be ignored.
