"Did I do something wrong? I followed the recipe and the bottom was a thick paste, the pudding was extremely thick. I ended up tossing everything and made my own version. Is the above recipe correct?"

"I was out of vanilla pudding so used chocolate fudge sugar free pudding in this and no graham cracker crust. It was delicious and less fattening, I am sure."

"We had company and I made this for dessert. I made it the day before and it was good but we were expecting alot more flavor. I don't know what it needs but it just seemed like it needed something. I will make it again but I'll try something different with it. I didn't use the sugar-free, fat-free, unsweetened, reduced fat ingredients either."
