Browned Butter Bourbon Butterscotch Pudding

This Browned Butter Bourbon Butterscotch Pudding is the creamiest, most delicious dessert! You’ll never make boxed pudding again!

Stop your life right now. Like literally stop it and run to your kitchen and get yourself making this.

Let me explain what I’m saying…I’m getting a little ahead of myself.

Boxed pudding is my arch nemesis…I DESPISE making it. ALL THE STIRRING… OMG IT TAKES MILK 400 YEARS TO BOIL. And really the end result isn’t that good. So basically you spend an eternity standing there stirring milk all for a globby mess of thick flavored milk.

Sounds delicious, doesn’t it?


So seriously people make your own. MAKE YOUR OWN PUDDING.

Yes, there will be stirring, but for the love it’s so worth it I can’t even tell you right now. Can’t even…

This is the BEST Butterscotch Pudding Recipe EVER!!

And don’t worry…this Browned Butter Bourbon Butterscotch Pudding sounds fancy and complicated, but it isn’t. It’s easy, and cozy and pretty enough to serve to guests, but also totally good on your couch in sweats.

ps…don’t love bourbon? I promise there is just the perfect little hint in here to make everything right in the world.

Still don’t love bourbon? Don’t use it. Leave it out. It will still be phenom. I swerrrr.


The browned butter gives this a great depth of flavor and the touch of bourbon adds to the sweetness…

These are elegant enough to serve to dinner guests, but cozy enough that your family would like them on any weeknight.

    You had me at bourbon. Actually you had me at browned butter…my eyes just jumped immediately to the “bourbon” part. What I’m saying is, I love you and I love homemade pudding!

    Yumm!! Love the combination of brown butter and bourbon! These pudding cups look fabulous and so much better than anything you can get at the store!

  7. Dear Shelly, Homemade pudding sounds great…You are so right; boxed pudding is a lot of stirring and the results could be so much better.

    You’ve got all of the basic food groups in this amazing pudding… well, maybe not, but the important ones are there, like butter and booze!

    I tried to make a butterscotch pudding recently but it failed to set. I should have just waited and made this fabulous recipe instead. Browned butter and bourbon. It sounds like perfection!
