Boozy Bites Series: Mudslide Pudding Shots

Alright, I know you are questioning, how strong can my love for mudslides be? Strong, a lot strong, so much that I’m working on a mudslide cake. For now, I am sharing an easy pudding shooter in a marbled chocolate cup for your game day grubbing or for whatever reason you may just want to enjoy these.

Mudslide Pudding Shooters

If you are a regular reader then you know I’ve made quite a few mudslides recipes. And since I’m running a Boozy Bites Series that will be featuring pudding shooters, I thought to kickstart the pudding shooter portion of it I would feature one my favorite drinks.

These are a fast and easy treat that you can whip up quickly. To shortcut the hands-on time further, just serve the boozy pudding mixture in a glass or tart shell. To make the cups I used a silicone mold, since they are more pliable and make for easy removal rather than the traditional metal or plastic chocolate forms.

Now that I have featured all three types of desserts for the Boozy Bite Series (marshmallows, Jello shots and pudding shooters) I will be moving on to your requests next week.

A few notes:

  • Make sure to buy instant pudding and not cook and stir or you will have a lumpy mix.
  • You can use Cool Whip instead of making homemade whip cream, but I find the texture works out better with the latter and can be left out at room temperature longer.
  • These can be prepared and fully assembled two days in advance and kept covered in the refrigerator.

Mudslide Pudding Shooters

Chocolate Shells


  • ¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate, melted
  • ¾ cup white chocolate, melted

Mudslide Pudding Mix (makes approximately 2 ½ – 3cups)


  • 1 3.9 oz Instant Jell-O Chocolate Mix
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup Kahlua
  • 1/2 cup Bailey’s Irish Cream
  • 1 1/2 cup homemade whip cream (recipe follows)


To make chocolate shells

1. Melt both chocolates. Using a small paint brush, lightly spot areas with semi-sweet chocolate. Then use a separate brush and cover walls of form with white chocolate transfer to freezer and chill for 5 minutes. Remove and apply a second coat and chill once more. The chocolate cups can be made 3 days in advance and kept at room temperature or stored in the refrigerator.

To make mudslide pudding mix

1. Place pudding mix and milk in a bowl and whisk to combine. Add in Kahlua and Bailey’s and vigorously whisk to combine. Fold in whip cream until no streaks remain.


1. Fill a pastry bag with pudding mix and fit with preferred tip and pipe into chocolate shells.

    I just made these and they are wonderful! I noticed that you don’t have the recipe posted for your whipped cream (although the recipe notes that it should be posted) so I thought I would bring that to your attention. I used my standard recipe with a little less sugar: 1 c heavy cream, 1 tsp vanilla and 2 tbsp sugar. That worked out well, although I only folded in half and used the other half to top the individual servings.

    In any case, this is awesome! I served it in martini glasses with shaved chocolate instead of making the cups and it was just perfect :)

    Look yummy. What kind of silicone cup did you use?

    What did you use to “paint” the chocolate cups??? A muffin tin? Cup cake liners?


    • maureen replied: — January 24th, 2014 @ 11:03 am

      I had same thought looking at the recipe. Everyone comments on looks rather than having made them. Did you get a response? Would love to know.

    Diane — January 23, 2014 @ 9:39 pm

    These are incredible and can be made a day ahead especially if you use a recipe like the Stablized Whip Cream from the Italian Dish blog. I used ice tea spoon to fill small skinny glasses.
