"I made this for my boss's birthday because he can sniff out an open butterfinger bar even if it was in Tibet. Instead of frozen reduced fat yogurt I use a premium brand of chocolate ice cream. I always make pudding using half and half instead of milk. The richer the milk the thicker the pudding comes out. So remember it is always important to use at least 4% milk but not 2%, 1% or fat free, then you would have to freeze it to firm up. I don't like the taste of frozen whipped toppings so I always swap them out for home made stabilized whipped cream. I know my version is much richer and certainly more decadent but it's dessert and it should be that way. Foot note: Just because it's richer doesn't mean you need to eat a smaller serving."

"I had trouble with mine setting to the firmness displayed in the photo. I guess photos can be deceiving. It tasted okay but would have been better if it was firmer. It seemed a bit costly and made quite a bit for a family dessert as well. It might be good for speacil occasions but then again I would want it firmer. I too was puzzled by the word "chill". Should that word have been freeze until set?"
