Butterfinger Pudding Shots

  • Author: Kim Seghers
  • Total Time: overnight or 4 hours
  • Yield: Yields: 1 dozen (2.5 oz) pudding shots


These Butterfinger Pudding Shots are the most delicious and sweet boozy adult pudding treats ever! Perfect to serve at any adult gathering.


  • 12 (2.5 oz) plastic soufflé cups with lids 
  • 1 (3 oz) box butterscotch instant pudding mix
  • 1 1/2 cups very cold milk
  • 1/2 cup Buttershots schnapps liqueur 
  • 2 cups Cool Whip, thawed
  • whipped cream, for garnish 
  • 6-8 mini Butterfinger candy bars, crushed (for garnish)


  1. Place the plastic cups on a baking sheet or large plate and set aside.
  2. Pour the butterscotch pudding mix into a medium mixing bowl. Whisk in the cold milk.
  3. Add the butterscotch schnapps and stir well until thickened (about 20 seconds).
  4. Gently, fold in the Cool Whip until there are no longer any white streaks of the whipped cream visible.
  5. Transfer the pudding mixture into the plastic soufflé cups, filling up to each rim.  Place the cups in the refrigerator and chill overnight or for at least 4 hours. After 4 hours, you can place lids on the cups if you are not serving them right away.
  6. Before serving, add a generous dollop of whipped cream on top of each pudding shot. Garnish each shot with crushed Butterfinger candy bars. (Optional – drizzle chocolate on top if desired).
  7. ENJOY!! 


You can use Duncan Hines Chocolate drizzle if you would like for an extra garnish.
