    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is perfect to serve at the holidays, it has a beautiful red color and makes a lovely presentation that will light up any holiday table --- plan ahead, this dessert needs to be chilled for 3 or more hours, prep time includes chilling time -- make this low fat by using low fat milk and reduced fat Cool Whip and pudding mix :)

      I made this about a year ago and never rated it. At the time I took it to work and the girls loved it. Had to get busy yesterday and find the recipe because one of the co-workers wanted this specifically for her birthday desert!! Great recipe. Thanks
