"Delicious, although I misjudged the serving size and used far too large of parfait glasses which made it look like a tiny serving. :) However, it was so good, indulgent and didn't taste "healthy" at all. Next time we are going to try with SF butterscotch pudding!"

"I made this recipe for the first time several weeks ago. I did increase the peanut butter to 1/4 C. It was fantastic! My guys loved it! I used SF pudding mix and Cool Whip Free to cut down on calories. It's a keeper - thanks for sharing."

"These are delicious! My hubby loved it so much and when I told him how easy it was to make he brought home 4 boxes of pudding the next day. We have 5 kids and they all thought they were sooo good. And any of them could easily make them themselves! Even the 9 year old! EXCELLENT!"
