Strawberry Cheesecake Pudding Shots 

We love pudding and jello shots when we host our friends over! For the 4th of July, they all went crazy when we brought out our patriotic pudding shots and our readers love our strawberry lime margarita jello shots. So this week I decided to combine the two and make these super delicious strawberry cheesecake pudding shots. They combine strawberry jello with cheesecake pudding to create an epic adult treat that everyone is raving about!
