Butterscotch Pudding (Made with Schnapps!)


My boyfriend loves to enjoy homemade pudding for dessert some nights, and I am more than happy to make batches for him. I always have leftover egg yolks in my fridge after making omelets and pudding is one of the best ways to use them up!

I had found a recipe for butterscotch pudding and decided to try it out one night. When my boyfriend and I tasted it we found it did not have a very strong butterscotch flavor like we expected. 

He brilliantly suggested that we add a tablespoon of butterscotch schnapps to the pudding after removing it from the heat and seeing if it made any difference to the level of butterscotch flavor. Let me tell you, the schnapps adds amazing flavor to this pudding!

This recipe has become one of our new favorite pudding recipes. If you want to feed this to kids, you should leave out the schnapps. You'll still get a wonderful tasting pudding, it just won't have as strong of a butterscotch flavor. 

You are certainly going to love this pudding. You should try to finish it within a couple of days because it does develop a strange texture if you leave it too long, but I don't think you will have any problems finishing these delicious puddings right after making them! Enjoy!
