Tembleque, or coconut pudding, brings back so many memories of the days my family would vacation in Puerto Rico to see my relatives. It was one of my favorite things to eat—I'm sure it will become a much-loved recipe with your family, as well.
I decided to jazz up homemade vanilla pudding to make it taste like a Mounds candy bar. When the miniature chips are topped with the warm pudding, they melt into a rich creamy chocolate that's great with the chewy coconut.JoAnn Moseman, Altus Air Force Base, Oklahoma
When our home economists spotted a pleasingly creamy pudding recipe from Sherry Bonner of Winnsboro, Louisiana, they decided to figure some extra fun into it. First, they filled small graham cracker crusts with her treat, then fashioned cute cub faces from cookies and candy. It's a hit with kids of any age!—Sherry Bonner, Winnsboro, Louisiana
"THIS IS my favorite part of my favorite meal! The 'pudding' really bakes up as a cake, but the delicious lemon sauce crowning each piece has a pudding-like consistency. This dessert is so good I can't resist making it several times during blueberry season...but my family has never complained about having it too often."
This easy-to-make pudding is a true chocolate lover's delight. I always look forward to that first dishful warm from the oven. You can top it with whipped cream, spoon it over ice cream or enjoy the fudgy flavor all by itself!
"Whole milk and butter give this delicious pudding its rich creamy flavor," explains Gayle Becker of Mt. Clemens, Michigan. "For a fat-free version, leave out the butter and substitute water for the 2 cups milk in the pudding. Since the mix already includes nonfat dry milk, it will still be creamy and calcium-rich."
