  • 1/4 Cup Milk 
  • 1 Box Chocolate Pudding Mix

If you don’t have chocolate vodka, you can use regular vodka as the chocolate powder does have a lot of chocolately flavor. 

If you really want more of a chocolate taste, use chocolate milk instead of white milk.

Tips For Making Your Dirt Pudding Shots Amazing

  • It takes a long time to get the mixture to thicken after adding the alcohol if you use a whisk. I definitely suggest a hand mixer to make things much quicker. 
  • Do not add more than the suggested alcohol or it won’t be thick enough to set. 
  • If your mixture just won’t thicken, add a bit more pudding powder until it reaches the right consistency. 
  • If your mixture is too thick, you can add some more alcohol, a bit at a time, until it reaches a nice or preferred consistency. 
  • Do not refrigerate these for longer than a day if serving. They will start to dry out and crack down the sides. These are best served the same day they’re made.
  • Do not garnish the shots if you’re going to have them sit in the fridge. You want to garnish them right before serving.
