½of a 30 g -pkg of fat free jello vanilla instant pudding mix
¾cup1 % milk
1.5tbspBailey's Irish Cream (or substitute ½ tsp Irish Cream extract) -you can add more to taste if this isn't strong enough
Prepare only ½ pkg vanilla pudding as directed on package, but with only ¾ cup milk ** If you decide to make up the entire pkg of pudding and use the reminder for something else, use 1 ¾ cup of milk
Whip the whipping cream to soft peaks with hand mixer. Set aside about ½ of the whipping cream, then add Bailey's Irish Cream to the other half and whip to stiff peaks.
Fold whipped cream/irish cream mixture into pudding and add food/icing colouring.
With remaining whipped cream (that will be your garnish) add 1 white granulated sugar and whip to stiff peaks. Set aside for garnish.
Cut each 2 bite brownie in half and take bottom ½ of brownie and press into bottom of shot glass, then add a little Shamrock pudding. Repeat for all 12, dividing it equally by remainder of shot glasses. ** Just make sure you leave enough space to add the other half of the brownie.
Press top half of brownies into the top of each shot glass. You may have a little left over pudding mix, so if there's room in your shot glass, you can add a dollop on top of the 2nd half of the brownie
Garnish with swirled whipped cream. (see notes for how to pipe a swirl of whipped cream onto your dessert shots) and scatter on gold sprinklesServe immediately or can remain in fridge for several hours or overnight to soften (this is best)

You can buy the icing colors off Amazon, at Michael's Arts & Crafts and even some dollar stores. My local Dollar store/party store carries them
