rumchata pudding shots with cookie shot cups with toasted coconut marshmallows

 

Graham crackers and white chocolate make up the simple candy cookie recipe that is molded and chilled in this clever Cup Pan  Then the dessert cups are filled with the boozy chocolate pudding Rumchata and topped with a toasted coconut marshmallow.    This recipe is very similar to our Bailey’s Dark Pudding Cookie shots that uses the same cookie shot maker pan. 

 

What is Rumchata?

Rumchata is very similar to Bailey’s and usually can either one can be substituted for each other but the taste is a little different.  Baileys Irish Cream contains cream, cocoa and Irish whiskey.   Rumchata is made in the United States and contains cinnamon, vanilla and  Caribbean rum and is relatively new on the market.  But of the 10 or so different flavored Baileys we found, one does contain vanilla and cinnamon and of course whiskey that could be substituted in this dessert shot recipe.

 

What you need for the cookie shot cups:

  • ¾ cup cinnamon graham cracker crumbs, about 5 whole crackers (or 10 squares)
  • ¼ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 ¼ cup white chocolate chips
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
