3 Boozy Puddings That are Ridiculously Easy to Make


A cup of pudding brings up memories of lunchtime treats and after-school snacks. There’s something so satisfying about pulling back that foil lid and digging into the plastic cup; and while our tastebuds have matured to prefer homemade pudding over the processed stuff, we still love the ease and convenience that Jell-O’s boxed mixes bring to the table. Plus, those instant packets booze-up just as well at the brand’s fruity gelatin. Yep, we’re talking about Jell-O pudding shots.

Whether you’re a diehard chocoholic, crave bittersweet tiramisu or long for the tropical flavor of a banana-coconut Daiquiri, there’s a spiked pudding here for every palate.

While the days of snack packs may be behind us, we’ve replaced the childhood favorite of chocolate pudding with something way better: a boozed-up version that’s just as easy to make as it is to devour. Spiked with rich RumChata liqueur and topped with a dollop of homemade whipped cream, it’s the perfect way to end a dinner party or treat yourself to a boozy afternoon snack. A final scattering of chocolate sprinkles will make you feel like a kid again.

Every Italian knows there’s no better way to end a meal than with tiramisu. The name of the dessert translates to “pick me up,” and it does just that with its buzzy mix of booze, sugar and caffeine. For this jiggly, super easy take on the classic dessert, we combined nutty amaretto and coffee liqueur with vanilla pudding and freshly-made whipped cream. A dusting of cocoa powder gives it that signature bittersweet finish to remind you that, even though you’re eating instant pudding, you’re still a grownup.

We love banana cocktails for their sweet, tropical flavor that instantly transports us to a beach far, far away. And because banana pudding is one of the best desserts of all time, we decided to combine the two favorites into one sugary, boozy delight. Dark and coconut rums join forces to spike this pudding with island flavor, while a plethora of tasty toppings give it a decadent, playful finish. Forget about cake—stick candles in this baby the next time you want to wish someone an extra happy birthday.
