MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 18, 2014

Yuck! I love homemade puddings...rice pudding, chocolate pudding, bread pudding, vanilla pudding, etc. This was just a glop of sugared milk. It had the consistency of pudding, but after about 2 or 3 bites it didn't taste like butterscotch, only like brown sugar. I'm not sure why it has received rave reviews. It was a flop, in my opinion.

I make this recipe all the time. I never buy boxed pudding anymore instant or cooked due to this recipe. I use this recipe to make the butterscotch snack cake. To help speed things along I use the microwave oven to cook the pudding. Also you can decrease the sugar content by using splenda brown sugar. thanks for a great recipe.

I did not have milk on hand so i used fat free 1/2 &1/2. Also, had about 1/4cup butterscotch chips that i added at the end. Absolutely decadent! Super easy to make and ohhhh soooo gooooood! Will never make boxed again.

This was very tasty! I used light brown sugar in place of the dark. Will definitely make this again.

Creamy, simple and delicious. Pulled the box of pudding out of my cabinet and it had 15 ingredients, part of which include yellow colors 5 and 6. Think I will stick with this one from now on. Didn't even wait till it was cold until I had my first serving!
