Ingredients for Chocolate Vodka Shots

Ingredient for chocolate vodka pudding shots on a counter.

It only takes a few simple ingredients and a few minutes to make these yummy pudding shots.

  • Whipped Topping – Cool Whip brand is a classic option, but any kind of whipped topping will do the trick here.
  • Chocolate Vodka – I recommend using the 360 Double Chocolate Vodka for the best chocolatey taste, but other chocolate vodka brands include Van Gogh, Cupcake, Three Olives, and others.
  • Milk – feel free to use any variety of milk here, from a nice full fat milk to a non-dairy replacement like almond milk or oat milk.
  • Oreo Pudding Mix – available online at Amazon or Walmart, this special pudding mix is one of the secret ingredients that gives your pudding shots a unique and irresistible flavor.
  • Oreo Cookies – serve as the bottom layer for your pudding shots. You can replace these with any kind of chocolate sandwich cookies you enjoy.
  • Mini Oreo Cookies – act as a cute and tasty garnish for your shots.
  • Condiment Cups – use any kind of disposable party shot cups to make these super easy to transport and to reduce extended clean up time. Condiment cups with lids are particularly good for when you need to bring these pudding shots with you somewhere.

How to Make Chocolate Vodka Shots

  1. Combine the chocolate vodka, milk and pudding mix in a large mixing bowl.

    Pouring vodka into pudding mix.

    The double chocolate flavored vodka is what gives these pudding shots their bold chocolatey flavor.

  2. Slowly stir in the whipped topping.

    Whipped topping ensures the mixture stays fluffy and satisfying.

  3. Add crushed Oreo to the condiment cups.

    A base layer of crushed chocolate cookies provides even more flavor and a nice crunchy texture.

  4. Transfer pudding mixture to condiment cups or plastic shot glasses. Garnish with a mini Oreo cookie.

Pudding Shot FAQs

What to mix with chocolate vodka?

Other common chocolate vodka recipes include the chocolate martini (typically made with vodka, chocolate liqueur, and Irish cream liqueur).

The Death by Chocolate cocktail, which resembles an adult milkshake, and the Chocolate White Russian are two more.

You could even combine chocolate vodka and chocolate milk for a simple creamy cocktail with a rich chocolatey flavor.

Does chocolate vodka taste like chocolate?

Absolutely, most brands of chocolate vodka create a product with a distinctly chocolatey flavor. This makes it perfect for dessert cocktails or even to be sipped on its own.

Is chocolate vodka sweet?

Most chocolate vodkas do have a bit of sweetness to them, but the flavors are typically more focused on a deep and rich chocolate.

Sweetness is often added to counteract the natural bitterness of the chocolate, but much of the sweetness in these Chocolate Vodka Pudding Shots comes from other ingredients.

What is the alcohol content of chocolate vodka?

The brand I used, 360, has an ABV of 35%, or 70 proof. Most chocolate vodkas you can find will have the same or similar alcohol content.

Oreo cookie pudding shots are such an easy to make party food.

Popular Variations and Substitutions

  • To make these more like cookies and cream pudding shots, use a whipped cream vodka instead of the chocolate.
  • Turn these into s’mores pudding shots by using some graham crackers and chocolate shavings instead of the Oreo cookies.
  • Use other flavors of pudding to customize these pudding shots to your liking. You could use a classic chocolate or vanilla pudding mix, or even something a little more complex like devil’s food or cheesecake pudding.
  • For some additional garnish and chocolate flavor, include a drizzle of chocolate syrup or some chocolate sprinkles with each shot. Or, top with a swirl of whipped cream or a dollop of the same whipped topping you used for the pudding mixture.
  • The crumbled Oreo layer is optional, as is the mini Oreo garnish. These chocolate shots will also taste delicious with just the pudding mixture.
  • If you’d like your shots to be a bit stronger, use Baileys instead of the milk component.
  • You can also serve this as a boozy topping for ice cream, cake, brownies, and more!
