    Very tasty, but I may try to make it a little different next time.

    I made this yesterday for a Memorial Day picnic and everyone loved it. Since so many say the pudding was too thin, I used 1/2 cup 2% milk and a 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream. It was perfect. More calories, but well worth it.

    Tastes wonderful!! Had some trouble filling the berries, but I'm not a pro at that. My diet is very carb restricted and I wanted to eat more than 2 berries in one sitting so I used unsweetened flax seed milk (unsweetened almond milk would work fine too. I just didn't have any) instead of dairy milk. And I subbed the whipped topping with zero carbs by whipping up a batch of fresh whipped cream made from heavy whipping cream and Splenda before adding the extract. Would make this again!

    I doubled it, used: 2c skim milk, 2 pkg white choc pudding, 12oz cool whip and almond. I served it with strawberries as a dip; it was a huge success!

    I listened to to the other reviews and used less milk. I used 2/3 fat free milk but the same on everything else. Very good consistancy with a bag. Sprinked with chocolate curls. Perfect!!!

    I made these while visiting relatives. They were a hit. A little messy as I did not have my pastry tips. Next time I will make the cream a little firmer.

    Had it at a family get-together. Was delicious! None left over.
