Recipe by Packer Backer Pammy

When my grandchildren visit they just love "helping" in the kitchen! I've been trying to think of some "quick" idea's for their next visit. Something that EACH (3) can make for their "own". I didn't want "heat" involved...maybe a dessert...I had some leftover brain started working in "kid" mode...I also had single serve puddings...and cool whip...had to have somebody to eat the "test"...grandpa likes cake...and pudding...and cool whip...but he only gave it "3 or 4" stars. (I don't think it counts though, after all, he didn't "make it himself" and he's NOT really a kid anymore...he just thinks he is!) lol! Prep time is a guess!
