Caramel Apple Pudding Shots are perfect for your fall parties or tailgating…
So last weekend we went to our neighborhood Halloween Party. Amber, my neighbor and resident food taster here at dadwhats4dinner.com hosts this awesome party every year. She goes all out and I mean all out. I have never seen so many decorations.
Unfortunately this year we could only stay until around 10:00 because of a 6:00 am wake up call to travel to a soccer tournament. Yeah us! I think the party was still rocking when we left for the game.
Since a lot of the partier’s know what I do for a living, I always try to come up with something new to bring. This year I made these Caramel Apple Pudding Shots. They are dangerous. They taste just like eating a caramel on a stick but great with a nice little kick. I guess if you have ten of the pudding shots it might have more than a little kick.
This is a simple recipe to make and only takes about an hour to set up in the freezer. I served mine frozen but you could also serve them chilled. I found my little 1 oz cups with lids at Gordon Food Service (GFS). I also found the little spoons.
The spoons are not necessary because you could just squeeze the shot out of the cup and finish it off with your tongue. I guess it depends on how sophisticated your crowd is at your party. The later in the evening the less important the spoons become.
This is an easy to make adult treat perfect for a Halloween party. Mix the pudding mix and milk. Blend in your liqueurs, spices, and caramel. Fold in cool whip and pipe into 1 oz. cups. Top with caramel and nuts. As you can see my cats are ready for Halloween. I hope you are.
