These dreamy RumChata pudding shots are luscious little cups of cinnamon-y, vanilla-y alcohol-infused pudding that will be the star of your next cookout or tailgate!
RumChata Pudding Shots
I’ve gotta hand it to you guys — ya’ll surprised me! Back in June when I shared these chocolate puddings shots, I made a bold statement that summer 2019 was going to be the summer of the pudding shot. AND IT WAS!!!
But what I didn’t predict was that you guys would continue making them for your tailgate shindigs right on into fall. Seriously, THOUSANDS of you have been hitting up my site each week — just for these pudding shots… And since I was already planning to make them for the Luke Bryan (!!!) concert this Saturday, I figured now would be a good time to create a new recipe.
So I present to you these amazing RumChata pudding shots! If you’re a fan of dreamy RumChata liqueur, with its mixture of rum, dairy cream, cinnamon, vanilla, and sugar, you are going to ADORE these creamy cinnamon vanilla pudding shots.
So do you want to learn how to make these pudding shots??? Of course you do! Because pudding shots with rum is where it’s at… And you can’t beat a good 5-ingredient recipe.
Vanilla Pudding Shots with RumChata Ingredients
Yep, FIVE — count ’em: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 — ingredients are all you need to make these yummy Jell-O pudding shots with RumChata. There are a lot of other fancier RumChata pudding shot recipes out there, but you know me — I like to keep it simple (but still delicious)!
So head to your local grocery store (preferably one that has a state liquor agency inside) and pick up the following ingredients:
- RumChata liqueur
- Pinnacle vanilla vodka
- 2 pkgs. of instant Jell-O vanilla pudding
- a 16-oz. container of Cool Whip
- and milk (if you’re out)
Oh, and you’ll also want to grab some of these little condiment/pudding shot cups! Most grocery stores carry them with the paper plates and plastic utensils, but they’re actually MUCH cheaper on Amazon. So if you know you’re going to be making them soon, save yourself some cash and order them ahead of time online.
And while you’re at it, I highly recommend ordering one of these medium cookie scoops, if you don’t already own one. I’ll tell you why in just a minute…
How To Make Pudding Shots With RumChata
This RumChata pudding shot recipe is seriously SO easy to make. After you’ve made them once, you won’t even need the printed recipe! Although you might want to take a copy (or five) with you to the party, ’cause you’re definitely going to be asked how to make these party-perfect RumChata shots…
Anyhow, it’s simply one cup each of RumChata liqueur, Pinnacle vanilla vodka, and milk mixed with two 3.9-oz. packages of instant vanilla pudding. Fold in a 16-oz. container of Cool Whip and voila!
And here’s where that medium cookie scoop I mentioned comes in. It’s ideal for transferring the pudding shots mixture into the condiment cups. One big scoop, plus a little extra dab on top, should be enough to the fill the cup while still leaving a little room for expansion when they freeze. TRUST ME — this task will go so much faster with the right tool.
Close up the pudding shots with the lids and pop them in the freezer. Can you freeze pudding shots? YES! Because these are pudding shots with alcohol (and a LOT of it, LOL), they’ll never freeze completely solid. And they’ll always be ready to go when you are.
How To Serve RumChata Vanilla Pudding Shots
When it comes to serving pudding shots, I actually prefer them straight from the freezer. But you can also just store them in the fridge or let them thaw a little before serving — totally up to you! If you’re planning to take them on the go, just throw them straight from the freezer into a cooler filled with ice and they’ll be good for the day.
Oh, and if you’re wondering: how long do frozen pudding shots last? Pudding shots with alcohol can be stored for about 2 months in the freezer and about 5-7 days in the fridge. But I can assure you they’re NOT going to be around that long!
