This delightful pudding is always a treat and easy to whip up using common pantry ingredients. I usually top the pudding with M&M's. My husband likes whipped topping on his and our daughter loves to dip fresh strawberries in hers.—Carrina Cooper, McAlpin, Florida

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 26, 2016

"This was a great recipe....very easy to make however my first try produced a great hot pudding but after being in fridge overnight it was soupy the next day. The second try I substituted one can of Carnation Evaporated Milk and 3 cups whole milk and boiled it for about 15-20 seconds longer than stated. It turned out very creamy and set nicely. Does anyone else out there love the skin on top of pudding as much as I do?"

"All I can say is YUM! I made this today as my husband had dental surgery and I was trying to think of soft foods he could eat. Pudding! Well, I don't keep the box stuff in the house, so I came across this recipe. It was very easy to make and is very tasty. This is a keeper!"

"This was a hit here at my house. My two year old is an extremely picky eater and she is on her third serving. I will be making this again."
