Remember when I posted the Oreo Chocolate Pudding Parfait Recipe and told you that I was going to buy some shot glasses and make a strawberry cheesecake variation? I promised that I’d post the recipe and pics and so here they are. Enjoy!!
Strawberry Cheesecake Shooters
*makes 4 shooters
- 4 shot glasses (I used 5oz shot glasses)
1 (4-serving size) package Cheesecake flavored Jell-O Instant Pudding Mix
2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups frozen sweetened strawberries*, thawed
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
*If you cannot find pre-sweetened frozen strawberries, simply add 2 tablespoons of sugar to unsweetened strawberries after they have thawed and stir.
Mix pudding packet with milk as directed on package. Set in fridge to chill.
Place the thawed strawberries in a bowl and mash with potato masher or back of fork. Set aside. Take your graham crackers and process in food processor until finely ground or crush in a Ziploc bag using a rolling pin.
When pudding has set, it is time to assemble the shooters. First sprinkle a layer of graham cracker crumbs on the bottom of your shooters.
Next, spoon a layer of the cheesecake pudding on top.
Add a layer of mashed strawberries.
Repeat with another layer of grahams then pudding.
Finally, finish off the top with more strawberries.
Here is our finished product (you can even add a dollop of whipped cream if you like).
And here is a side view:
They were so easy to make and delicious!!
***Bonus Tip: Similar to the tip I mentioned in the Oreo Chocolate Pudding Parfait Recipe I also keep a gallon-size bag of crushed graham cracker crumbs on hand in my pantry at all times. It’s great for making pie crusts; cake, cupcake or sundae toppings and you can even mix them into shakes or smoothies.***
