It’s Christmas time, which inevitably means Christmas parties right? I am telling you right now, if you are hosting (or attending) a Christmas party this year you MUST serve (or bring) these pudding shots! I don’t often demand things of you (just my husband), so you know these have to be fabulous!
Everyone is familiar with jello shots, but I don’t really care for jello so they aren’t my favorite. THESE, however, are my favorite! I got the recipe from a friend, who got the recipe from her neighbor. These are not only easy to make, but the pudding and alcohol flavors can be easily substituted. We most commonly make these with chocolate, and I recommend using plain chocolate pudding instead of devil’s food. Recently we also used cheesecake pudding with cherry vodka (in place of the Baileys), and the highlight of our recent party was butterscotch pudding with butterscotch schnapps (pictured above). There are so many possibilities! If you make these with different flavor combinations I’d love to hear about them. Enjoy!
1 box instant pudding (3.4 oz)
¾ cup milk
¼ cup vodka
½ cup Baileys Irish Cream
8 oz cool whip, room temperature
Mix together pudding and milk, then add remaining ingredients. Pour into dixie cups or disposable shot glasses, filling ⅔ to ¾ full. Refrigerate at least one hour to set.
