Substitutions:

  • For the pudding mix, you could use any flavor you prefer. White chocolate or cheesecake pudding mixes would both be delicious!
  • You can use any liquor you like, we recommend rum or bourbon, but I’ve also heard Fireball whiskey goes great with eggnog, too!
  • Use what spices you like, we usually do cinnamon and a sprinkle of nutmeg, but you can customize these to your taste.

Tips:

  • Use a medium cookie scoop to easily pour the pudding shots into the plastic cups.
  • We buy these plastic cups from Walmart, and they are also available on Amazon.
  • Store these in the refrigerator until ready to serve, and then top with your whipped cream and sprinkle of cinnamon, though, you’ll want to serve these within 24 hours of making them.
  • For easy transporting all of these little cups to the refrigerator, place them on a baking sheet first.
  • These little creamy eggnog holiday treats are perfect for your next holiday party. They’d be perfect for Christmas or New Years Eve.
