Here’s How to Make Boozy ‘Adults Only’ Hot Cocoa Pudding Mugs

Let’s be honest — alcohol is the perfect way to warm up when temperatures are dropping outside. This explains why people geniuses always craft the most delicious methods of getting tipsy for the holiday season. Hey, when there’s snow on the ground and just about nothing else to do, what better way to get busy than festive, winter-themed shots? (Shots, shots, shots, shots, shots, shots, everybody!)

First came edible candy cane shot glasses, with all of their peppermint-y goodness to ease that oh-so-pleasant burn of liquor. And now? Boozy, “Adults Only” Hot Cocoa Pudding Mugs.

What are hot cocoa pudding mugs, you ask? Oh, just the most epic way to get crunk — chocolate pudding jello shots spiked with your choice of booze: either crème de cocoa or peppermint schnapps. Complete with a pretzel for a handle (yep), these fancy little buggers will satisfy your sweet tooth and have you buzzed in an instant.

Here’s how to make Kraft’s “Adults Only” Hot Cocoa Pudding Mugs:


  • 2-1/4 cups milk, divided
  • 2 env. (1/4 oz. each) KNOX Unflavored Gelatine
  • 2 oz. BAKER’S Bittersweet Chocolate, melted
  • 1 pkg. (3.9 oz.) JELL-O Chocolate Instant Pudding
  • 12 miniature pretzel twists, broken crosswise in half
  • 1-1/2 cups thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping
  • 1/4 cup JET-PUFFED Vanilla MALLOW Bits
  •  1/4 cup crème de cocoa or peppermint schnapps (your call!)


  • ADD 1-1/2 cups milk to dry gelatine in small saucepan; stir. Let stand 3 min. or until gelatine is softened. Cook and stir on medium heat 3 min. or until gelatine is completely dissolved. Remove from heat; whisk in melted chocolate. Cool 5 min.
  • BEAT pudding mix and remaining 3/4 cup cold milk in medium bowl with 1/4 cup crème de cocoa or peppermint schnapps, and whisk 2 min. Whisk in gelatine mixture. Spoon into 24 shot glasses sprayed with cooking spray. Refrigerate 3 hours or until firm.
  • UNMOLD desserts onto tray just before serving. Insert pretzel half into side of each for the mug handle. Top each with 1 Tbsp. COOL WHIP and a few MALLOW Bits.
Makes 24 servings (break out the party hats!)

The only question we have left is: how does one even begin to properly enjoy this treat? Do you tilt your head and slurp out the creamy confection, or just take a bite of the jiggly cup and try to awkwardly pop the rest in your mouth?

Eh. We’re pretty sure that after a few of these, you’ll have the answer (or just be too delightfully sloshed to care anymore.)

Holiday Candy Cane and Gingerbread Flavored Jell-O Pudding

Jell-O is taking it up a notch with Candy Cane and Gingerbread pudding this holiday season. Note, when Jell-O takes it up a notch that means that all those holiday potlucks you attend will also experience a little pep. Pasta Salad, 7-layer Bean Dip — meet Gingerbread Trifle and Candy Cane Oreo Parfait.

The Limited Edition Candy Cane and Gingerbread mix require little manipulation to become a light, tasty and easy-to-make dessert. It also makes for a great cake filling or mousse. The Candy Cake Oreo Parfait instructions suggest that you layer the pudding with Oreos, then top the little cups of pudding with crushed candy cane and Cool Whip. In a matter of minutes, you will have yourself a colorful and festive treat.

Although, I have my eye on the Gingerbread Trifle, which instructs that you mix the pudding with Cool Whip to give it a nice, thick and creamy texture. Layer with more Cool Whip — not complaining — and chocolate wafer cookies. Drizzle with syrup. The end. Happy Holidays.
