The recipe didn't state that this was not an instant pudding mix. You must use the cook and serve pudding. I made cherry flavor and waited for the mixture to cool and added an 8 oz container of sugar free cool whip to give the mixture a fluff texture. The options are endless with this recipe. Will make again with more flavors and will change my rating to 5 stars once the recipe is correct. It's 5 star with the cook and serve.
