We've narrowed down seven of the most decadently delicious brands that are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Tempus Fugit's Creme De Cacao

Nero Cioccolato Gianduia

Nutella fans, this is the drink for you! Made from Italian grappa, Bottega's velvety chocolate and hazelnut liqueur is as good, if not better, than the popular chocolatey spread. 

Godiva Dark Chocolate Liqueur

No one knows chocolate like Godiva. The Belgian chocolatier has been producing fine sweets since 1926 and now they've created a liqueur with the perfect combination of unsweetened dark chocolate, black cherry, candied orange peel, and coffee. Serve it neat as something to sip on after dinner or mix into a more decadent cocktail.
