Coconut Dream Pudding Shots

We have a new recipe for pudding shots from our Connecticut connections. Found Coconut Cream pudding in my cupboard. Working out the details now, then have to freeze. Just dreaming of what can be mixed with Coconut Creme... Reviewed the recipe again - calls for freezing for 4 hours! How can you do a shot that has been frozen? We might have to modify this recipe. Calls for milk - that's harder to come by than 1 cup of liquor. For the record, we have to modify the recipe because it makes 40+ servings. This recipe is brought to us by the Flying Beavers of Woodbury, CT. We haven't met them, but they are friends of a friend type of thing.
Ok, they've only been in the freezer for 15 minutes and they are certainly not "potable". They are completely frozen. Do we thaw and enjoy? Here's the recipe we created:

Coconut Cream Pudding Shots
1/3 package coconut cream pudding
1/3 cup milk
1/9 cup chocolate vodka
1/9 cup amaretto
1/9 cup creme de cacao
1/3 tub Cool Whip

We are moments away from consumption, and want to know the proper method for these delicious concoctions. We can only think spoon at this time.

Alright, we're back, we figured it out, and we're idiots. I think the intent was to pour the mixture into a small, squeezable cup (like the ketchup cups at McDonald's). We obviously used the wrong vessel (see photo). Have you ever eaten pudding with a straw? They taste delicious though and the little bits of coconut that must have been in the box of pudding add a nice texture.

Lesson learned - keep the bartender out of the kitchen. We scooped the leftovers into a little popable ice cube tray and are looking forward to trying them tomorrow.

Bottoms Up and Cheers!

  1. One package instant pudding, 3/4 cup of milk, 1/2 cup of kahlua or similar, 1/4 cup vodka or similar. Mix. Add eight ounce tub of extra creamy cool whip, freeze at lest an hour. My favorite combo is cheesecake pudding, baileys, raspberry vodka. Delish, and definitely a party favorite!! -Beth Ligon
