These Pudding Shot Recipes are all easy to make, delicious alcoholic pudding shots that are perfect for the holiday season.
Some of these recipes are made with a specific type of alcohol, such as vodka, Kahlua or RumChata, but there are some other basic recipes where you can easily substitute in your favorite alcohol.
Pudding shots are most popular around Christmas season, but they are great any time of the year, including Valentine’s Day and even in the summer.
Tips For Making The Best Pudding Shots
- Pause while mixing for smoother shots. Sometimes when mixing pudding shots, it is hard to dissolve all the pockets of pudding powder or Cool Whip chunks. If you find this is happening, just let the pudding sit for a minute, then stir again. The chunks will dissolve much more quickly!
- Put the pudding into your serving containers before it sets. Don’t store the pudding in a big container and then divide it up before serving. Once the pudding shots have set, they don’t transfer as nicely. Put the mixture into your shot glasses before you chill them in the fridge.
- Experiment with flavors. Pudding shots are quite a forgiving recipe! It is easy to replace some of the alcohol with another type of alcohol or liqueur. Or, you can use different flavors of pudding powder (or even a combo of two flavors!). Use the recipes below as a starting point and get creative and try something different.
