"I loved the touch of creaminess from the pudding and milk. They were super easy to cut out with tiny cutters and remove from the tray. I used a paper tray with no nonstick spray. I will definitely be making different colors and shapes with my son for other holidays."

"Visually these worked great and were easy to make but the vanilla pudding tasted so weird with the Jello, no one enjoyed the flavour unfortunately."

"I made these last year for our annual pumpkin craving party. All the kids loved them. They were even gone before all the other goodies. These are very easy to make. Will do it probably every year for my nieces and nephews!"
