In honor of National Tequila Day, delight your taste buds and trick your tequila-loving friends. Everything about this easy, frozen tequila dessert is delicious — including the worm!
Tequila lime pie shooters with candy worms
Yields 10-12 servings
- 3/4 cup finely crushed pretzels
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1/2 cup fresh-squeezed key lime juice
- 3 tablespoons tequila
- 2 tablespoons Triple Sec
- Zest from one key lime
- 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 5-6 Lemon Tootsie Rolls
- 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
Dip the rims of your shot glasses in water, then dip them in sugar.
In a bowl, mix together the crushed pretzels with the melted butter and sugar. Put approximately one tablespoon of crust mix into each shot glass, packing firmly with the end of a wooden spoon. Freeze for about two hours.
After the crusts have hardened, whip the whipping cream until very firm. In a separate bowl, mix all of the other ingredients, then pour it into the whipped cream, folding until well blended.
Pour the mixture into the shot glasses. Freeze for another two hours.
To make the worms, heat lemon Tootsie Rolls in the microwave, individually for 8-10 seconds. Split them in half and roll between your hands to form worm shapes. Make worm segments on the Tootsie Roll by rolling them back and forth against the serrated edge of a knife.
After you’ve carved the segments into all of your worms, dust them in cocoa powder.
To garnish, twist them around the necks of mini spoons or have them crawling out of the shot glasses, whatever you desire. They’re too cute and funny to bury them at the bottom of the glass!
