To make this pudding shot, you’ll need just 5 ingredients; graham crackers, Rumchata, cheesecake pudding, whipped topping, and milk – we call them the fantastic 5! A lot of people are curious, what is Rumchata? Rumchata is a cream liqueur made from scratch with distilled Caribbean rum, fresh dairy cream, vanilla, sugar, cinnamon, and other ingredients.

This Rumchata is then infused in cheesecake pudding, with layers of cinnamon graham crackers and topped with whipped cream to make your “soon to be favorite” bombed dessert. This recipe is totally customizable; you can combine varieties of pudding flavors, liqueurs, and cookies. Cheesecake pudding was used for this recipe but you can swap with banana, vanilla, or white chocolate. Feel free to go ahead and explore the richness in other flavors like chocolate, vanilla, pumpkin, and strawberries.

  1. Divide the graham crackers crumbs evenly between 16 plastic shot glasses, or soufflé cups.
  2. Whisk the Rumchata, milk, and pudding mix in a large bowl. Whisk continuously for about 2 more minutes.
  3. Now, put the bowl containing the mixture into the refrigerator and allow it to set up for about 5 minutes.
  4. Remove bowl from the refrigerator and fold in the cool whip.
  5. Place the cups on a table and spoon the Rumchata cheesecake pudding into each of them.
  6. Place in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
  7. Top with additional cool whip and graham cracker crumbs when you're ready to serve.

Notes: Serve them up in mini shot glasses instead of plastic cups if you're having your party indoors or if you're making just a small quantity. Also, make sure you use instant pudding and whole milk or 2% milk. You can get your Rumchata at liquor stores or even grocery stores. This recipe is for grown-ups only.
