Easy Christmas Cheesecake Shot Recipe
These little individual desserts are the perfect addition to the Christmas table because they can be a little bit naughty but still nice if there’s kids around! Using our easy cheesecake filling and sauce recipe, put aside a little of each to create your shots. This means you can make a full cheesecake for the table that is safe for kids and tea totallers, and individual shots for the grown ups. Alternatively, you can take the cheesecake to the inlaw’s place and keep the shots for home!
Modify the cheesecake filling
Once you’ve made the filling in our easy peasy Christmas cheesecake recipe (you may wish to reduce the amount of cream to keep the texture right) stir through 4 tablespoons of Bailey’s Irish Cream – or if you prefer Strawberry liqueur or even just vodka! Set aside to chill in the fridge.
Modify the compote recipe
Allow your compote to thicken a little longer and then add two to three shots of vodka to the sauce. Stir in and then remove from heat immediately. Allow to cool in the fridge.
Creating your easy Christmas Cheesecake Shots
These are very rich little lovelies so a smaller container for each is advised. These are perfect in shot glasses but for the sweet tooth, plastic disposable wine glasses make a good sized little vodka soaked feast!
- Carefully spoon the cheesecake mix into the bottom of the container. If you’re fussy about keeping things neat, use a paper towel to wipe any misplaced cheesecake from the container before moving forward.
- Top with a few berries and then cover with the vodka compote. The berries help keep the layers separate but if you’re after more booze, less fruit, you can skip the berries and just make for a colourful, delightful, boozy mess. It’s up to you!
- Repeat until the cup or shot glass is full. Refrigerate until firm
- Before serving, top with a few pretty berries and a dob of cream. Lordy so good!
This super simple Christmas Cheesecake shot recipe gives your dessert some real wow factor, and some kick! Merry Christmas from all at Baby Hints and Tips! See you in the new year!
