A pudding recipe that I found in a Southern Living magazine (January 2000). Great for peanut butter lovers

This is a very rich, very sweet pudding and for that reason I did not garnish it with the suggested garnishings. Half and half could easily be substituted with ordinary milk. You could also make do with about 1/2 cup of peanut butter if necessary. Substituting some of the sugar with maple syrup would also be yummy.
