Desserts in a shot glass – who could resist! They are so tiny, so cute, and so classy. There’s something really special about serving dessert shooters that makes them so much more fun than full-sized treats. Plus, shot glass desserts make it okay for you to have more than one serving of dessert. (Yesssss!)

If you’re hosting a New Year’s Eve party I highly recommend trying out a few of these dessert shooter recipes to wow your guests! They’re not as hard to make as they look – some are even no-bake. Give it a try and you’ll have the best-looking dessert bar in town!

      Hi Kelly! There's no recipe. It's just a way to assemble/serve the shortcake.

    Hey! Question, could you make these a night in advance for a wedding the next day. Or should they be assembled day of?

      Hi Collyn! I'm sorry, I don't know for sure. I'd assume that most caterers and restaurants prep desserts in advance though?

      I had the same question. How far in advance from the event can I make these without compromising quality. I was hoping 2days in advance. Put them in the fridge or freezer until the event.

        I would believe to make them a day in advance. The newer the better quality. Thats my opinion

    Could these be made at least 2days ahead of time? I want to make these for my daughters wedding but I will be way to busy to make them the day before.
    Thank you for all these delicious and easy recipes. I can’t wait to try them.

    I was wondering if you could change an ingredient, and mix it with alcohol to have a fun night with friends while having a little desert?
