  • Reviews

  • “This tasted great-I used toasted almonds and it was very nice-doesn’t make a big batch-But that’s OK-a nice way to whip up a tasty treat quickly.”

  • “The ultimate comfort food… be sure to save some to share with other people! (or double the recipe, just in case) When you first mix the pudding, butter and milk, it will be VERY thick and you may think there’s no way you can boil the mixture. Just be patient – it thins right down and then does indeed boil. :-)”
