This is an "oldie" from the Jell-o box years ago. Still a favorite & great in the summer. The combos are endless. Have fun & enjoy! Cook time includes chill time

This cake is DIVINE!!! I used french vanilla cake mix because that's what I had, and chocolate pudding. Excellent for summertime because it is so cool and creamy. I can't wait to experiment with different cakes and puddings! Thanks!! ~Manda
