Caramel Apple Milky Way Pudding Shots

Just five days until Halloween! Who is stealing all of their kids caramel apple Milky Way after they go trick or treating to make these?

I saw caramel apple blondies made with Milky Way last week and couldn’t stop drooling. I mean look at those things!  I knew right away I wanted to make something with them too.  I’m not the best baker but I make a mean pudding shot!


I realize these look a little bit like my pumpkin pie cheesecake pudding shots, but I swear that’s caramel on the bottom. I used  vanilla pudding and mixed in caramel sauce and caramel vodka.

The apple slices for scooping is almost the best part. Which is weird since there is caramel and candy bars and booze!


I’ve been struggling with my photos lately. These came out okay but my photo shoot before this one (Dallas Cowboys jello shots, how bout them Cowboys ya’ll??!?) was a total fail. I am going to have to redo them.

I take all my photos during Austin’s nap time which is between 1-3pm. I think I figured it out though, the sun is setting earlier which has changed my light!


I wonder if that will all be remedied when we move forward the clocks in a few weeks. That will be the only good thing about losing daylight and driving home from work in the dark from now on.
