"Followed the directions to a TEE, and it came out lumpy. I had to tell my three year old they were snowballs so he would eat it."

"Made an account just to review this! Turned out amazingly, I don't buy milk so instead I used silk's almond/coconut blend for this recipe and Dutch-processed cocoa and it turned out incredibly!"

"Yummy! Smooth and a real nice chocolate flavour. I used it to make a chocolate icebox cake. I will try to put some mint into the pudding next time to give it a festive twist."

"Made this tonight. Very quick and so good. I do not like instant box pudding, so was quite thrilled to see this recipe. Will make this delicious pudding often. I am lactose intolerant and the lactose free milk does well in this. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!"
