We make this at our house when we are craving chocolate tapioca pudding. It is so simple to can even be made in the microwave. Note: Prep and cook time does not include cooling.

Turns out my boxes of pudding were 3oz but it worked. I would stop cooking at 6 mins. At 8 mins, it got gluey. At 7 mins, it was loose before refrigeration but still gluey after. Yes, I tried this 1st w/chocolate pudding & bananas. The next night I used vanilla pudding but was out of bananas. I will probably make this frequently since it's so fast & easy. :) Thanks! Made for Aussie swap 3/10.
