Are you wondering what you can make for a Christmas dessert? You are not alone. That is what is so nice about Christmas Sweets Week, you can find all types of inspirations for a Christmas dessert, like this eggnog pudding.
I love layered desserts. It was the idea of layering eggnog pudding with gingersnaps is had me wanting to do a dessert in a glass. Yep a dessert shooter recipe!
Dessert Shooter Recipe
JoyJolt sent me these beautiful square martini glasses for Christmas Sweets Week. I know they would be great for a dessert shooter recipe. Fist I thought, maybe I would create a homemade eggnog recipe. However, I really wanted to make an eggnog pudding instead.
I knew eggnog pudding would be perfect for any eggnog desserts collection. I decided that my eggnog pudding would be better in a layered dessert. What to pair with the eggnog? Gingersnaps! This would be perfect!
Gingersnaps have a spicy bite to them. If I crush them up and layer them with the eggnog pudding in the JoyJolt glasses, it would make a nice Christmas dessert!
