I thought for sure I would have seen this posted already, as this has been a standby of my mother's for the last 30 years or so. It is always a big hit and, best of all, takes little effort.
- 2 (4 ounce) packages instant chocolate pudding mix
- 2 (3 ounce) packages ladyfingers

- Line a springform pan bottom and sides with ladyfingers (about 1-1/2 packages).
- Follow directions on pudding mix, using 2 cups of milk.

- Beat until thick with heavy peaks.
- Pour into ladyfinger-lined pan and let set.
- If you like, finish off top with additional whipped cream.
Family friendly, couldn't be easier dessert. Ladyfingers gussy up chocolate pudding quite nicely. Have unexpected guests? This makes up in a flash! Made for Rookie Recipe Tag.
Great dessert and easy also, I had the same problem as Hokie did, it took a special trip to the Italian store to get ladyfingers, I may give this a try next time with my recipe#362346 I prefer homemade pudding to the boxed, thanks for sharing Jackie!
I struggled finding lady fingers anywhere so I used sliced angel food cake. It worked fine. The most important issue with this recipe is not the lady fingers but the mousse!! I never would have thought that an instant pudding mix could turn out to taste so wonderful. I usually find them a bit bitter but using the milk and heavy cream takes all that away with this recipe! Jackie thanks for sharing what will now be my go to recipe for mousse - with or without the ladyfingers this is a great dish! Tagged in 123 Hits.
