  1. The picture looks like it was really made with COOK n serve pudding mix cause it has the more clear look, sorta like lemon curd or lemon meringue pie filling. it doesn't look like it has milk in it as the lemon INSTANT pudding does! Maybe it is just the lighting, or photography, but, my instant lemon pudding never looks like that!
  2. I have made this chocolate for years. Can also make it with coconut or butterscotch pudding. Lemon is a favorite of mine too but I don't do much lemon because I would eat it all.

    I am like a couple others. The lemon pudding I have used is milky looking, not this clear pretty look.
  3. I'm going to make this soon! It looks delicious! I made one almost the same using a can of pumpkin and everyone loved it.....but we have a granddaughter who doesn't like pumpkin, so I was hoping to find something to replace the can of pumpkin. Butterscotch sounds good too! I'm new to pinterest, but have been finding so many tasty and fun things to pin!
