Christmas Shooter Recipe
As I write this, the holiday season is upon us and I really wanted to create a fun, new holiday dessert. And what better dessert than a keto white chocolate dessert! That is the perfect base to create a divine Christmas shooter recipe.
This dessert is a super fun one to bring to parties or even just to enjoy at home. I mean, who doesn't love chocolate?
Making this keto white chocolate Christmas shooter recipe is simple and quick. Best of all, it only takes a few ingredients and minimal effort to make.
The trick is to mix in the heavy cream correctly to get the right consistency. You don't want it to be too thin or too stiff. Find the perfect balance, and you'll have a smooth, melt-in-your-mouth dessert that's worth sharing (or keeping all to yourself).
Nothing fancy needed here, other than maybe the shot glasses!
How to Make This Christmas Shooter Recipe
Add the white chocolate chips to a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds at a time until completely melted. Mixing in between intervals. Stir the vanilla into the melted chocolate chips.
Add the mixture to a different bowl and blend half of the heavy whipping cream in until the mixture is smooth. Chill for 30 minutes. Pour the rest of the heavy whipping cream into the chilled mixture, and blend until light and fluffy.
Divide the mixture into two parts and stir the red food coloring into one half and the green food coloring into the other. If you prefer to skip the food coloring, that is perfectly fine!
Pipe the green mixture into the shooter cups, filling them up about halfway.
Pipe the red mixture on top of the green, filling the shooter cups up.
Garnish with sugar free whipping cream and sugar free sprinkles before serving.
There are lots of modifications and substitutions that you an make with this Christmas shooter recipe!
First and foremost, you can change up the colors! You can leave out the color and enjoy a simple keto white chocolate dessert. You can use red and green for Christmas. Or pink and white for Valentines day. Orange for Halloween. You get the idea! Go crazy and have fun.
Clearly we use keto white chocolate in this recipe, but you can also use regular brown keto chocolate. You won't really be able to use the food coloring, but you will still end up with an amazing and fun dessert!
There are a lot of topping ideas for this Christmas shooter recipe. Low carb sprinkles are the more favorite option. Homemade whipped cream is also another option.
Does A Christmas Shooter Recipe Have Alcohol?
Yes, traditional Christmas shooters have alcohol, but NOT this Christmas shooter recipe! Rather than an alcohol shot, these are keto white chocolate dessert that you can enjoy with the whole family!
How to Store Christmas Shooters
Luckily for you this dessert can be stored in the refrigerator for a few days. That means you can make a big batch and use it as a quick dessert when unexpected guests show up. After all, it's always good to have a delicious and nutritious dessert on hand.
Having said that, it is always best to just make it right before you need it!
