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?

    Do you think if I made these pumpkin pie shots with skim milk and fat free cool whip they would still be good? As long as the whipped cream on top is full fat??? Just wondering if that would mess up the consistency?

    I tried to make these and I don’t think they turned out correctly. I used everything from the list and mixed in a bowl but it was very runny. I let it sit in the fridge for around 10 hours, still no change. Your picture has a very pudding consistency, mine looked more like milk. Any tips or suggestions?

    I have made pudding shots with skim. The key to get them to become thick is to freeze them they become the consistency of mousse

    Great recipe. We are making these for our annual Halloween costume party. We are simplifying our clean up by using standard shot glass size edible chocolate shot cups. These are going to prove to be decadent beyond measure. Ours out coming from our local chocolatiers at Philadelphia Candies in hermitage pa. Thanks o you both for great inspirations!

    Do you think I can use pumpking pie filling instead of the instant pudding and milk? I can’t find that flavor of pudding anywhere!

  15. Matso says:

    Would one batch make enough to fill a pie crust? I am thinking of putting it into a graham cracker crust and serving as a dessert. Would it be thick enough to do that?

    I made it with just the vanilla pudding and added a sprinkle of pumpkin pie seasoning on the top and it was delicious!

  18. Kynlon says:

    Would you suggest making the pumpkin shots the night before? Thanks!!

    As long as it wasn’t part of what was recalled, try cinnamon whiskey instead of whipped vodka for a pumpkin pudding shot with extra zing! Had them over the weekend, served out of the freezer – Amazing! 😈
