These Mixed Berry Cobbler Pudding Shots are made with fresh mixed berry juice, vanilla pudding, vodka, and topped with a crumble topping.
It’s still fresh berry season here.
In fact, I head to my friend’s berry farm in the morning to get some more.
That is probably the last of the tayberries sadly (my favorite).
But blackberry and blueberry season will be up next.
Corn season is starting as well.
It made sense to use the fresh berries in a pudding shot before they are gone.
Of course you can make these year round by using frozen berries.
But fresh berries are always the best.
So Mixed Berry Cobbler Pudding Shots were born.
I got the idea for the topping from making my peach pie fudge a few years back.
I had a crumble topping I put on the fudge. Ended up using the same recipe for this.
There will be some left over.
You can either make some fudge or you can sprinkle it on ice cream.
And then drizzle berry juice over that.
I will admit that these are not the best color.
The berry and the vanilla sort of make a purple gray color.
So you can add some food coloring gel if you would like them to be more colorful.
Perhaps a purple or a magenta berry color.
Or you can just do what I did and leave them be. 🙂
It’s a great day to order my cookbook.
