Recipe for Peanut Butter Cup Martini – For the Holidays All You’ll Have is Peanut Butter Breath!

I rarely imbibe in alcohol.   I get migraines from wine.  I get drunk from hard liquor.  I can get drunk THINKING about drinking.  When I do have a drink I like vodka martinis.  Actually I like the olives.

I like peanut butter cups better than olives.  If I were to drink regularly this just might be my nightcap of choice.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Martini

Prep time: 5 mins Total time: 5 mins Serves: 2

2 1/2 ounces Reese’s Mini Peanut Butter Cup Infused Vodka, (recipe below)
4 ounces milk
1 teaspoon Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup
4 mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, for garnish

To prepare the martini, combine infused vodka and milk in a cocktail shaker filled halfway with ice. Shake for 30-40 seconds and pour into two small (double the recipe and use BIG glasses OR drink it straight from the shaker) martini glasses.

*Garnish with Mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Infused Vodka

Plan ahead — it takes 7 days for the Vodka to get addicted to Peanut Butter Cups
6 oz. vodka (Barely enough for taste test.  I wouldn’t mess around with ounces because vodka is much cheaper by the liter.)
1/4 cup Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (After the taste test you might just throw in the whole bag)


  • Combine vodka and Reese’s Mini Peanut Butter Cups in a clean mason jar. (If you skip the taste test quantity you’ll need something bigger like an empty keg)
  • Close jar tightly and store in a cool dry place for 7 days.
  • Give it a good shake once or twice per day. (Bit hard to shake a keg so you might need energy from left-over peanut butter cups)
  • Once vodka has been infused, strain into a clean mason jar (read keg) using a fine mesh sieve or cheese cloth.
  • Store in a cool place or in the freezer. (If the keg doesn’t fit in the freezer, drink enough until the remaining quantity can be put into a clean mason jar)

*Garnishing Directions:

  1. Unwrap all the Peanut Butter Cups (one or more bags)
  2. Eat one PNB cup, take a swig, eat one PNB cup, take a swig . . . continue until all the PNB cups and martini mixture have been consumed.
  3. If there are left-over Peanut Butter Cups keeping making and drinking martini’s until the Peanut Butter Cups are completely gone.
  4. If there is any martini left, keep unwrapping and eating (as described in step #2) until there is no martini mixture left to drink.
  5. Alternate between #3 & #4 until the peanut butter cups and martini mixture are both finished simultaneously.


While consuming Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Infused Vodka do not drive any motorized vehicle, post your picture on Facebook, sign anything or make a video of yourself taking off your clothes, running down the street screaming uncomplimentary things about your neighbors and post on YouTube.

  1. Here’s a non-chocolate holiday-type drink recipe I sorta invented (but not quite).

    Mix a shot (whatever amount you can handle the taste of or the alcohol content of) of Kaluha or other coffee liquor with blend (coffee/half and half) cream (as much as you need). Add a scoop of stiff whipped cream.
    If you skip the whipped cream, and don’t mix the kaluha with the cream, each sip creates a lovely swirly pattern of brown on white.
    Peanut butter cups should only be in your checked luggage (spoken by a peanut allergy person)


    • Lorraine,
      I so hope you had your epi-pen (sp?) handy and didn’t go into ANAPHYLACTIC SHOCK reading the post on Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I should have posted a warning that this blog post contained peanuts in the title.
      Kaluha is one of my favorites — I’d forgotten in my peanut butter cup haze.


  2. I take it that since the word “martini” is in the title, some alcohol is involved?

    I couldn’t get past the Reese’s. I love Reese’s with a passion. The little mom and pop corner store 2 blocks away sells stuff at a bit of a reduced price because they own the property and that’s what they do to try and stay competitive with the convenience store chains. Reese’s Minis are always there. Always.

    The picture looks great. I’m sure it tastes great. I didn’t need to know anything else other than Reese’s is involved. You are a worthy opponent and you have found my weakness. Congratulations.



  3. I’ve tasted a Chocolate Martini, just a taste.
    I can’t hold my liquor. (with a disorder that causes vertigo, you really don’t want to drink.*snicker* people already think I’m drunk)

    Oh, but the Chocolate Maritni was very interesting.

    when I did drink some, I had a bartender friend who made me a drink that looked gross, but tasted just like Tootsie Rolls…boy could I get smashed on those…if I ever allowed myself. : )

    Just found this recipe for it on line…don’t know if it really taste like the one my friend made but here it is:
    1 oz brown creme de cacao
    1/2 oz vodka
    1/2 oz triple sec
    1 splash orange juice

    Stir the ingredients and strain into a rocks glass.

    if you ever want to experiment.



    • Wendy,
      Take a look at Rick’s comment below. Another recipe for Chocolate Martini, You can be the judge for the taste-off and decide which recipe packs the most chocolately delight. You can make the criteria up as we try out the various recipes.


      • Unfortunately for me, the biggest criteria would be no alcohol
        don’t think I’d be a very good judge. : )

        I saw on a PBS show once where they were talking about candy, and they made this chocolate drink in Hershey, Pennsylvania, everyone said it tasted like a Hershey bar.

        I’m move of a dark chocolate purist now a days. No alcohol for me. I do miss a good glass of deep red wine with dark chocolate…oh, there is this restaurant in Asheville, NC that makes everything Gluten Free, and they have this chocolate raspberry cake, that is so good with red wine….but the cake is really good all by it’s self.

        You guys will have to have fun without me. Enjoy.


  4. You might also like a “straight” Chocolate Martini.

    1 oz. of Three Olives brand Chocolate Vodka (actually exists!)
    1 oz. of Cask and Cream brand Chocolate Temptations cream liqueu
    .5 oz. Irish Cream liquor (Bailey’s or similar)
    Fill with ice and shake, strain in to pre-chilled martini glass rimming with chocolate shavings, garnish with chocolate shavings.
    I ACTUALLY have this (won at a charity auction) and would gladly share with you (have to visit us in Colorado, it doesn’t “travel well”).
