MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 4, 2012

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!
