Easy to make and I have used the vanilla pudding and it tastes great!!
I used the vanilla pudding and it was great!!!!!!
Yummy, the whole family loved it.
I made this for company and everyone loved it! It was very simple to make. I substituted chopped cashews for the pecans, and served it with vanilla ice cream and warm caramel sauce.
