"I used this recipe and poured into a Graham cracker crust for a banana cream pie. Excellent and easy. Has the potential for so many variations.."

"FABULOUS pudding, and so incredibly easy. The peanuts are good, but it tastes even better if you layer the pudding with bananas and crumbled oatmeal cookies. Yum!"

"Great Pudding! I used half brown sugar, and 1/2 white (Did not realize my pantry was so low... The only sugars I have in my pantry are sugar/splenda mix, so I only used 1/2 of what the recipe asked for. Also, I used non-fat milk and Omega-3 eggs - to give you all some healthier ideas. Anyway, it turned out wonderful! Enjoy!!"
