Pudding Shots!

 I’ve been wanting to do this post for months and thought I lost the photos I took during the last computer melt down.  (Happy to report our computer is up and running!!) Well, it turned out that I have them stored on my memory card!  YAY!

Without further delay, I give you the best party recipe known to man…

Hello class,  today we will be learning how to make pudding shots.

Start by gathering your ingredients.  This recipe will make about 30 shots.  You will need :

1 1/2 cups of whipped cream vodka

1/2 cup milk

1 packet of pudding mix

1 tub of cool whip

canned whipped cream for garnish

any other garnishes you might want

SQUEEZABLE paper shot cups

***If you are making pistachio, only use 1 1/4 cup vodka and add 1/4 cup of Amaretto  (garnish with whipped cream & crushed pistachio nuts) **


Make room in your fridge for the tray. Set up the cups on a baking sheet or tray.  Be sure to do this first or the pudding will set up in the big bowl and you’ll make a huge mess.  Trust me, I’ve done that.

Mix the milk, pudding packet, and vodka together in a bowl. Make sure it’s nice and smooth.Then, add in the cool whip.  Stir until blended well.

Pour into cups using a tablespoon, or if you’re me, a wonton spoon.  This part can get kind of messy.

 Fill each cup almost to the top.

Lick the bowl and spoon thoroughly.  This step is very important 😉 .  Up until this point I was only making pistachio pudding shots (they were the only flavor pudding shot that I ever tried).  After I lapped up every drop from the bowl, I found myself in the supermarket buying more cool whip to make more.  I had a genius moment of tipsiness and reached for the oreo and coconut pudding mixes.   Variety is the spice of life! 

Pop into the fridge.  They should be ready fairly quickly (like 25 minutes or so) but you can keep them in the fridge for a day if you need to.

Right before serving, top each cup with a squirt of whipped cream and your garnish of choice.

I used  Oreo pudding and garnished them with crushed oreos. This was the first flavor to get gobbled up.  They were amazing.

And I made the pistachio which I forgot to photograph (bad blogger!).

I also made coconut cream topped with toasted coconut,  which were my favorite.

  2. Did you thaw the whipped topping first? I bought mine and made right away and it made a huge mess when it flopped in the mixture and it was a little difficult to mix. Waiting for them to set up now. I used cheesecake pudding then mixed a little grenadine in the last bit of mixture and layered it on top. Can’t wait to try.

  3. I made the pistachio ones and they turned out awesome. At first I was a little worried as I thought the mix was a bit runny when I filled the cups and it did take quite a while for mine to set, so by the next morning, they were good to go. I was a little impatient and made a second batch and used less alcohol and a bit more of the pudding, those turned out good too, but by the time they were set, could have used a bit more booze. 🙂 All in all, they were a hit at the party I went to, I kept hearing people say, god those are good!! 🙂 Didn’t have time to take pics, but look about the same as the ones above. I switched up the garnishes using crumbled oreos, graham crackers and darker green sugar sprinkles.

  5. Mindy…they ALL were DELICIOUS!!!!!!! Please let me know next time you make them!

  6. Also very versatile because you can adapt it to any occasion by virtue of added ingredients — chopped toasted almonds or pistachios shaved chocolate chocolate curls toasted coconut or maraschino cherries on top.

  7. That sounds good! I will definitely give it a try the next time I have a party!. 🙂

  8. How is it that I attended two universities and have never heard of pudding shots? Good-bye Jell-o. 😛

  9. oh good god… did you KNOW it was my birthday or something! And whipped cream vodka… WHAT?!?!? Never heard of it before this!

  10. This is definitely going on my to-do list!!
