All i can say is wow, what a pudding! I didn't fancy nuts so added some chop chips and mini marchmallows. It turned out brilliantly, Kittencal you are my favourite chef!!! I love all your recipes and can now add this to my list of favourites!! Thanks for sharing
VERY NICE! I made this with Splenda products and milk. I subbed frozen dark sweet cherries for the walnuts. It turned out with a thick pudding layer and thin cake layer. My husband absolutely loved this...I didn't think it was the greatest thing to sub Splenda in. I'll try it with the real stuff some day. I enjoyed it with cool whip lite. Made for the Zaar tag game.
I love dessert recipes that are quick & easy to make when you have a craving for something sweet! Aside from scaling this recipe in half & using pecans (you know how I feel about walnuts!!), I followed the instructions. I opted for milk & served with frozen vanilla yogurt. Thanx for another delicious dessert Carol!
