Vanilla Pudding Shots

Friday was a recipe for the kids, today is all about the grown-ups.  Because honestly, the best part of being a grown-up is drinking, am I wrong?  Pudding shots look sweet and perfect for a kids party, but these cuties pack a punch, a vodka punch.  With a half of fifth of cake vodka in my cupboard, I’m always on the look out for ways to use it up.  I know I could just drink it all, but that seems a little excessive.

The pudding shots were made for our NYE’s party, but they would be great for any party, or any time when you want a party to happen.  Nothing says party more than sprinkles and whipped cream.  The pudding shots are easy to mix together ahead of time but I wouldn’t add the sprinkles and the cookie until right before serving.  As you can see from the picture the sprinkles bled a bit and the cookie get a little soggy.  The cookie makes a perfect little spoon to scoop up all the boozy vanilla pudding!  There may or may not be left over pudding shots in the freezer that serve as a delightful-midweek pick-me-up…

Vanilla Pudding Shots
Adapted from Endless Simmer
Inspired by That’s so Michelle
Yield – 48

3.9 ounce box instant vanilla pudding
3/4 cup cold milk
1/2 cup cake vodka, I used Three Olives
1/3 cup whipped vodka, I used Pinnacle
8 ounces Cool Whip, I used reduced fat
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
splash of vanilla
24 Dark Chocolate Pirouline Cookies
48 small cups

  1. Whisk together the pudding and the milk in a large bowl.  Whisk in the vodkas.  Fold in the cool whip.
  2. Set up the cups in a 9×13 baking pan.   Transfer the mixture to a large baggie and then snip off the end to fill the cups.  Fill each cup about 2/3 of the way.  Refrigerate for at least an hour.
  3. Make whipped cream by whisking the heavy cream in the bowl of a stand mixer until soft peaks form.  Whisk in the sugar and vanilla.  Transfer to a piping bag and pipe a dollop in each cup.
  4. Cut each pirouline cookie in half.
  5. Top sprinkles and half a cookie to use as a spoon.
