    Excellent. Used 2 cups of milk for the pudding, and 1 cup of the whipped topping. Found it to be creamier,less concentrated.

    I took a chance and made this for our granddaughters, one of which always declared that she didn't like pudding. I knew she liked fruit, however so decorated the top with assorted berries. They both absolutely loved it.
