Make instant pudding special in no time with this rapid recipe from Audrey Thibodeau of Mesa, Arizona. Creamy servings get a little zip from almond or rum extract, richness from sour cream and a pleasant crunch from pecans.


  • 1-3/4 cups cold milk
  • 1 package (3.9 ounces) instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond or rum extract
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans, optional
  • 4 pecan halves, optional


  1. In a bowl, combine milk, pudding mix, sour cream and extract. Whisk until slightly thickened, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in pecans if desired. Spoon into four bowls. Top with pecan halves if desired.
