Strawberry Cheesecake Pudding Shots Recipe
I’ve never made a cheesecake from scratch. It just seems like one of those things I’d probably screw up. It wouldn’t set. It would jiggle too much and fall all over the floor. It would taste like cream cheese and nothing else. I don’t know. I just know I’d screw it up. So instead of even attempting to try to make a cheesecake, I think I’ll stick with something I know I’m good at making and make these strawberry cheesecake pudding shots instead.
Because you can’t screw up pudding shots.
I mean, I guess they can get too liquidy. But, if that’s the case, you can just fluff them up by adding more Cool Whip. Or they can get lumpy. But, if that’s the case, you can use a strainer or add more fatty milk, or beat the shit out of the mixture. Or they can get too strong. But, if that’s the case, you can work on your alcohol tolerance.
I mean, they are SHOTS, after all.
This strawberry cheesecake pudding shots recipe starts with a layer of cheesecake pudding that’s mixed with Baileys’ Original Irish Cream alcohol. It’s then topped with a layer of alcoholic strawberry pudding made with Strawberries and Cream flavored Baileys’ (if you can’t find this limited edition flavor you can always substitute strawberry vodka or use more Original Baileys’). Finally, for that little bit of “crust,” top it off with some crushed graham crackers.
It’s everything you love about a slice of rich strawberry cheesecake with way less effort, way less chance for something to go wrong, and way more alcohol…

Beat with a wire whisk for 2 minutes, until combined and soft. Add up to half a container of frozen whipped topping until thoroughly combined with desired consistency.
- Pour strawberry pudding mix into a separate medium mixing bowl. Slowly pour milk and Strawberries & Cream Baileys over the pudding mix and stir to combine. Beat with a wire whisk for 2 minutes, until combined and soft. Add up to half a container of frozen whipped topping until thoroughly combined with desired consistency.
- Spoon cheesecake pudding into serving dishes, filling halfway. Spoon strawberry pudding on top, filling almost to the top of the serving dish. Top each serving with a layer crushed graham crackers.
