I like to make desserts that don’t skip on flavor and don’t make people feel restricted but also are portion controlled. I’ve always had a problem with a huge plate of cookies in front of me or a giant table filled with desserts. I always ate too much and always regretted it. Because of that, whenever I host a party I try to be mindful with my desserts. I try to only have 1-2 desserts and I also try to make them feel portioned.
This past weekend I hosted a party and decided to try my hand at a couple boozy chocolate desserts. They were fab! and satisfying, I don’t think any of my guests left feeling overstuffed:)
First: Boozy Chocolate Pudding Shots
- 3/4 Bag of a large chocolate pudding bag ( I think a small would suffice also, but I had a large)
- 1 C Whole Milk
- 3/4 C Baily’s Irish Cream
- 1- 8 oz. tube of cool whip
- 1 bag of giant marshmallows
- Candy Candy Garnish (optional)
Start by mixing the pudding, milk and Irish cream together.
Fold in whole container of Cool Whip.
For chocolate pudding shots, pour into individual shot sized portions and garnish with candy canes or candy cane sprinkles.
Place in fridge. Note I finished these at 5 pm and served them at 10 pm and they were perfect.
For the boozy chocolate marshmallows
Dip half of the marshmallow in the pudding mix. And garnish with candy cane sprinkles or other topping of choice.
Place in fridge until ready to serve.
