Why Didn’t My Pudding Shots Set?
One very important thing to mention about making pudding shots is your milk and your whipped topping MUST BE COLD! Otherwise, your instant pudding will not set up to be thick enough.
You will have to beat your pudding and cold milk at high speed to get enough air into your pudding to have set properly. Refrigerate your pudding until you are ready to serve them up!
I promise your party will be more memorable with these Oreo pudding shots! They are fun, festive, and irresistible!
How Long Do Pudding Shots Last?
Pudding shots should keep in your refrigerator for 5-7 days and can be kept in the freezer for up to a month. Allow them to thaw in the fridge before serving.
Pudding Shot Recipe Tips:
- Instant Pudding is the best for pudding shots as it sets up quickly.
- Use very cold milk when making pudding shots and beat on high with a handheld mixer. The cold milk and all the air from whisking will work to set your pudding.
- Any type of alcohol will work in pudding shots, you can substitute brandy, vodka, flavored Irish cream, or whiskeys, tequilas, and bourbons in your shots.
- Flavored vodka would be delicious!
- Fold in the whipped cream, do not stir, or else your pudding will deflate.
- As far as what size cups to using for pudding shots, I used 1.02 ounce glasses I found on Amazon along with small plastic spoons. But you can use disposable plastic cups or any other cup you like!
Can Pudding Shots Be Made With Almond Milk?
Almond milk does not have the fat that cow’s milk has, so your pudding will not set up properly. This will hold true for any milk alternative.
You can use a thickener with almond milk if you are working with old-fashioned pudding that needs to be cooked.
