  • “This recipe needs to get some attention as it is excellent for so little effort. It is seriously simple. It has not been reviewed since 2007 and I was lucky to stumble upon it this week.I made this for the inlaws when they visited us this past weekend.They thought it looked gorgeous and everyone loved the flavour.Thanks so much for sharing this, you can bet I will be making it again.By the way, I also made a different version for my daughter as she can’t eat cherries. I crumbled up a brownie and layered the pudding mix over and topped with chocolate chunks and whip cream. She loved it like that too. Awesome Nicole!”
