Caramel Vodka Apple Cheesecake Shots

A friend posted a recipe for cherry cheesecake shots with cinnamon whiskey, and it sounded like a nice treat to bring to a Halloween party that I was going to. Only trouble is, my DH doesn’t like cherries. Still…cheesecake shots!

Years ago I had found a recipe for Caramel Apple Sangria, and that was delicious. So, I figured I could put the two together, make something edible. People would be drinking, so I was certain that I wouldn’t be judged too harshly if they fell short of delectable. But, they did end up tasting quite good. No leftovers.

These also work just fine as tiny desserts without the booze.


1/3 pkg graham crackers, crushed
4 tbsp butter, melted
2 tbsp brown sugar

Filling (cream together):

2 8-oz pkg cream cheese
1/2 cup caramel vodka
4 tbsp sugar

Topping (saute all ingredients, except vodka, until apples are tender and sugar is caramelized; stir in vodka):

3 large granny smith apples, peeled and diced
3 tbsp water
2 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp butter
1/4 cup caramel vodka

Spoon into cups, cover, and chill. Makes about 30 2-oz servings.


Those sound wicked-delicious!

Oh, I bet these were a hit! Nothing like a novelty shot for a party, right?

Truth. Especially if you bring these out midway through the party. Bahahahaaaaa!

They sound delicious!


Thank you! Yes, they’re a fun way to mix things up and they’re really not too boozy.

Would be fun even without booze! I love the mini desserts at buffets and such.
