What are pudding shots?

The creamy cousin of the jello shot, the pudding shots are an alcoholic pudding that can be made in a variety of flavors. The base of pudding shots is instant pudding mix that you add to alcohol for a boozy treat. These shots are super easy to make in large batches and you can prepare them ahead of time so they are the perfect thing to serve for parties and events.

Ingredients for pudding shots

  • Instant pudding mix: Make sure that you get the instant variety of pudding mix and not the kind you have to cook, as that won’t set up the same.
  • Milk: You’ll want your milk straight from the fridge as cold milk helps the pudding gel together properly.
  • Alcohol: We are using Bailey’s for this recipe, but you can substitute whatever kind of alcohol you like! You can also split the alcohol content between two liquors for a more nuanced taste.
  • Cool Whip: This creamy addition helps give the pudding shots more body and adds to the fluffy dreamy texture.

What are the best toppings for pudding shots?

  • crushed graham crackers
  • mint
  • cinnamon

Add right before serving so your toppings don’t melt or get soggy!

How do you serve pudding shots?

You can serve pudding shots in small plastic cups with lids or in shot glasses if you want a reusable option.

How do you eat pudding shots?

Depending on how much Cool Whip you add to the recipe, the consistency will be a thicker or thinner pudding. Thicker pudding shots can be served with small spoons to scoop it out and thinner pudding shots can be tipped and drunk straight into your mouth.

How many pudding shots does it take to equal one regular shot?

If you add one cup of alcohol and get 20 pudding shots, each shot will have .4 ounces of alcohol. One shot is usually 1.5 ounce of alcohol, so you would need about three pudding shots to get the content of one regular shot.

Tips for Making

  • If adding toppings like whipped cream or chocolate shavings, add right before serving so they don’t get soggy or start to melt.
  • As long as your alcohol adds up to one cup of liquid, you can divide that into several different alcohols if you want more than one alcohol flavor.
  • Want a stronger pudding shot? Use a harder alcohol (like vodka, rum, etc.) or choose something with a lower alcohol content (like Kahlua or Bailey’s) if you want less of an alcohol punch.
  • If your larger size of instant pudding package recipe calls for more than 2 cups of liquid, just split that amount evenly between milk and alcohol so it will set properly (so if it calls for 3 cups liquid, do 1.5 cups of milk and 1.5 cups of alcohol).
