**One of my favorite adult treats this year were the pudding shots!  



3/4 cup of milk
1 (3oz) small box instant pudding mix
1 (8oz) tub extra creamy whipped topping, thawed
3/4 cup of alcohol

Mix milk and liquor together then add pudding mix and whisk together or blend on low speed for 2 minutes.

Fold in whipped topping.
Pour into 3/4-ounce plastic cups with lids.
Best if frozen overnight.
Each recipe makes about 20 servings.


The best combination = white chocolate pudding, mocha Kahlua and Peppermint Schnapps!!
