This may be my very favorite overall dessert recipe. It’s so easy and so quick to pull together, even at the last minute. It’s almost always what I make when guests are coming over, because it’s always a hit. You can fancy it up or leave it plain, and it’s always delicious. It takes next to no effort at all to change up the flavor by simply using a different pudding mix and different mix-ins and toppings. This is absolutely my go-to recipe whether I’m in a pinch or if I have all day to prepare!
- Whisk in 1/4 cup peanut butter or Nutella to the pudding mix and milk (before the cool whip).
- Substitute 1/4 cup caramel sundae sauce for 1/4 cup of the milk.
- Add 1-2 tbsp. flour to make a “cookie dough” type pudding mousse.
