Extremely cool idea...the possibilities are endless. With so many chip flavors out there: white, milk, butterscotch, semi-sweet and peanut butter, you could get really fancy with this! How about a peanut butter shell with chocolate ice cream? YUM! Anyway, makes a really nice presentation and is soooo easy :) P.S. I did the ice cream, did not try pudding yet. Thanks!

I actually use silicone muffin cups for mine and I dip them in chocolate (the chocolate is on the outside of the cup). Easy peezy and so elegant!
