Do you want to be the favorite at Christmas this year? Do you want everyone to eagerly await your entrance? Do you want to be invited to all the parties? Do you want to have the most Christmas cheer? Of course you do!
If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, this is the recipe for you! Easy, no baking, tasty, and filled with bourbon. We're in the holiday spirit now! These are creamy, flavorful, and have just a touch of delicious bourbon.
Pudding shots are so much classier than a pudding shot because they come with a cookie spoon. Totally classy! I brought these to our annual Christmas Eve feast and they were all gobbled up. The great thing about Christmas Eve is even though the cousins are all in their twenties or thirties, we are still resigned to the kids table. #KidsTableForLife. Make these happen this December!
Eggnog Pudding Shots
Adapted from That’s So Michelle
Yield - 30 1 1/2-ounce shots
1 box (3.5 ounces) instant vanilla pudding
3/4 cup eggnog
1/2 cup Bailey’s Irish Cream
1/4 cup bourbon, rum, or brandy (I used bourbon, always bourbon)
8 ounces Cool Whip, thawed
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg + more for topping
30 vanilla wafers for serving
Whisk together the pudding and eggnog in a large bowl, the mixture will be thick. Whisk in the Bailey’s and bourbon.
Fold in the cool whip.
Transfer the mixture to a piping bag (the easiest way to fill the cups) and fill the cups leaving a 1/4 inch opening at the top.
Grate fresh nutmeg over the top and cover the lids. Place in the freezer until serving.
For service remove the lids and place a vanilla wafer in each cup to use as a spoon.
