🔪 How to Make Halloween Pudding Shots

Making these shots is super easy, so you’ll be able to spend most of your time enjoying your friends.

Step 1: Make the Pudding

Make the instant pudding mix according to the package directions but substitute 1 cup of RumChata for 1 cup of milk. Place the pudding mixture in the refrigerator to thicken.

Step 2: Prepare the Oreos

Scrape the filling off of the Oreos and add it to the chocolate pudding. Then, carefully cut the cookies in half with a sharp knife. Cut one of the pointed ends off of each half, making a flat side that you can stick to the shot glasses.

Step 3: Fill the Shot Glasses

Remove the pudding from the refrigerator and fill the plastic shot glasses.

Step 4: Melt the Almond Bark

Melt the chocolate almond bark in the microwave at 15-second intervals until melted and smooth.

Step 5: Decorate the Shot Glasses

Dip the flat side of an Oreo in the melted chocolate and stick it on one side of the shot glass. Repeat with another Oreo and stick it on the other side of the glass. Repeat this process for all shot glasses.

⁉️ FAQ

Do you have questions about this pudding cups recipe? Here are the answers to the most commonly asked questions for this basic pudding shot recipe.

Can you add too much alcohol to pudding shots?

Yes. If you add too much, your pudding won’t set.

Why do pudding and Jello shots get you drunker?

They don’t. You just drink more of them because the sweetness masks the alcohol.

How can you enjoy shots without getting bombed?

Take it slow. Remember just like regular shots, too many of these pudding shots in quick succession will flood your body with alcohol. Try to have one at a time and keep some space between them.
