This was fantastic! DH loved it and I had a taste and it was very tasty! He is so lucky to have it all to himself! LOL I didn't have any vanilla instant pudding so I used white chocolate instant pudding! This was so very easy to make and make sure you chill it really well before cutting! On top I put some Hershey Kisses for decoration! This was made for Spring PAC 09 Jelly :)
