Tips and Tricks

  2. Chill Before Serving: A few hours in the fridge helps set the pudding.


  1. Irish Coffee Pudding Shots: Add a cup of Kahlua liquor for an extra kick.
  2. White Russian Pudding Shots: Mix in cream vodka and use a chocolate pudding mixture.

Where to Serve

These Baileys pudding shots are a huge hit during the holiday season, St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, or any special occasion that calls for a dash of adult indulgence.
