This dessert was delicious! Really satisfied my sweet tooth--and I have a big one! Anyway, I'd just like to share that when the recipe states (the larger size) it is confusing. The one ounce size is not the larger size of box--it is the regular size. The four serving size. Don't try and use two smaller ones (which was what I was going to do until I just decided to try one box and see how it went) Maybe that is where some people keep coming up with the "extra point" thing. I used the 1 ounce box of FF, SF vanilla pudding which is the smaller/regular size of box. Just thought I would clarify that. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe! We all LOVE IT!
Once I entered the ingredients into the e-tools create-a-recipe this recipe came to 4 pts but you have to use a store bought angel food cake. If you use one that you make at home it ups the points to 5pts. This sounds heavenly! I will leave follow-up feedback once I get the votes of my family.
This is SO good--and easy, too! It's a perfect combination of creamy and crunchy, and it's absolutely delicious. I made it for a "welcome back" party at work, and my coworkers loved it too. I'll definitely be making this again!
This was extremely quick and easy to make and tastes great. With that said, I only gave this recipe 2 stars because to me it seems very high in calories for something with the words "weight watchers" in the title. I'm not following weight watchers, but I count my calories and have been looking for some low calorie desserts to satisfy my after dinner sugar cravings. I was shocked when I totaled up the calories for the whole thing. It seemed like a lot for a 9 x 13 inch dish. I came back to the recipe to check the nutritional information (I thought I must have made an error in my calculation) and sure enough, it says 185 calories. 185 calories for a dessert would be great, except that this recipe considers one serving to be 1 15th of the pan! This means (if my math is correct) that each 185 calorie piece is 3 x 2.5 inches! That's a lot of calories for such a tiny serving! <br/><br/>I'll probably make this recipe again because of how quick and easy it was, but next time I would do 2 butterfinger bars instead of 4, and will check to see if any calories can be saved by preparing my own angel food cake instead of purchasing a ready made one.
I have to agree with everyone of this dessert. Next time, I will use a larger box of pudding, however it was really, really good. I used the sugarfree angel cake and keep the rest of the recipe the same., I used my Teflon 9x12 baking pan with a cover and lasted really well until it was gone. You must try........And, Iam a lousy baker!!!
8 Points plus though!
I am going to make this tomorrow for my family. I just put the nutritional facts into the new WW Points Plus calculator and it comes out to 5 PPV's.
* Made this last year at Thanksgiving. Totally easy to make. Didn't layer it and still tasted Awesome!! Deserves to be in any cookbook - adult or children's. Making this for Christmas. Just need the Angel Food Cake, Cool Whip, and Butterfingers. This time I'm adding more candy. ;D *
Awesome dessert! Our daughter is on WW and I always try to have something light with her in mind, preferrably something that has been WW rated for points. The extra help with the calculations helped a lot, and I also found a sugar free angel food cake to make it even better. Bottom line? The men were asking the ladies to get the recipe! Gotta love it. Thanks for posting this one.
After reading all the debate about point value for this recipe (before I bothered with it further), I went online and researched the point values for all the items in the ingredient list. Using FF items listed & a Pillsbury FF angel food cake, the ONLY fat is from the candy bars & 4 bars weighing about 272g CANNOT contain 160g of fat. BTW... I think the zaar nutrition numbers are off for total fat! 15 servings @ 10.9g fat per serving using everything FF except the candy bars? I think not... the candy bars are only 17% fat (about 11g)! Bottom line... 67 total points for 15 servings = 4.5 pts per serving! And the recipe is delicious... if you like butterfingers.
