Pumpkin Spice Pudding Shots

Okay.  I know that I posted about pudding shots before (see that recipe here).  This recipe is tweaked just a little bit, and they taste ridiculously good, so I’m posting about them…again 😀

It’s definitely autumn in Connecticut.  The leaves are beginning to change color, the air is crisp, and football is what consumes my Sundays (GO NY GIANTS!).  Pumpkin is the official fall flavor.  It seems like every brand has a pumpkin version of its original.  Pudding is clearly no exception.

My friend Lindsey was having a get together on Saturday and called for reinforcements (AKA me).  She’s been dying to try my pudding shot recipe since I first posted it.  I told her to pick up milk, whipped cream vodka, cool whip, canned whipped cream, garnishes and whatever flavor pudding she wanted to try. She bought pistachio, cookies & cream, and pumpkin spice.

She’s not normally camera-shy.  But when I whipped out the camera & started snapping shots of the food, she knew it was blog material.  I told her I wanted her to make a FSL cameo, but this is all she gave me.

She’s like one of the girls from The Price Is Right making the box of pudding look glamorous 😉

I digress…

We made the cookies & cream first and followed the original recipe.

These weren’t topped with whipped cream or crushed oreos yet because we made them the night before.

Next, we made the pistachio.  We also decided that this was the point where we “tested” a few out just to be sure that they were good 😉  We thought that they were a bit too strong.  Yikes!  At this point we decided to cut the recipe for the next batch.  This is what we did:

1 cup whole milk

1 packet pumpkin spice pudding mix

1 regular sized tub of cool whip

1 cup whipped cream vodka

a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice

Put all of these ingredients into a big bowl.

Mix Mix Mix

Pour the mix into squeezable shot glasses, garnish with a squirt of whipped cream and a dusting of cinnamon!

I triple dog dare you to try to have just one of these.  I’m not kidding.  Instant party in your mouth. Like, for real.

What’s your favorite pumpkin flavored fall dessert?

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.
