Ideas: Yummy suggestions for all those boxes of pudding!

Unread post by tiffany » Thu Aug 09, 2007 1:58 pm

I read somewhere in my manual that we need several (15, I think) pudding boxes for week 6. Not being regular pudding eaters, I was wondering how we'd use that much.

I ended up going to www.kraftfoods.com and typing in pudding in the recipe finder. You can even type in your favorite flavor if you want. I got tons of results and sorted them by time of preparation. You guessed it - I went for the ones that had the shortest time!

We did already make the Eclair Cake for one of our summer b-days, which is really good for those who haven't tried it. It is on the Kraft site and uses 2 boxes of pudding.

Enjoy!

Great idea (getting recipes, etc.)

We're not big pudding or jello eaters, but when we went camping over the summer before RTR, I treated the kids to those little individual cereal boxes. Usually they are pricey, but now and then go on sale. The kids loved having Sugar Corn Pops and Super Sugar Smacks (they aren't called that anymore are they? I was raised on them and only know their original names before they were "edited" to remove the word sugar.) Whatever they are...

The little cereal boxes worked just fine although they are bigger than pudding or jello boxes.

I'm not sure yet what we are going to use because we don't eat any jello or pudding.

Think I'll send out an e-mail to family and friends and ask them to save me boxes.

Just a heads-up -- jello boxes are NOt the same size as pudding boxes! Ask me how I know (& why I had 15 of each in my cupboard :o)

Oh, and for those of us who don't necessarily *make* the pudding *before* we take the box: Remember to label what's in each bag!

I bought boxes of jello, then pudding, then realized I could've used jello...

Oh, one thing that my oldest did in kindergarten (back when she went to school), is "rainbow bananas" a great way to use jello mix. You get out a paper plate and pour out a LITTLE of each of three or four colors of jello (the powder straight from the box). You then peel a banana and roll it in the powder and it sticks to the banana. Voila!!

Fun?

RTR: Lots of pudding

What was I thinking? I bought pudding cups rather than boxes. We will be eating pudding for awhile!

Good idea! 16 pudding cups and our church is collecting for a food closet.

We went to the Kraft foods website and came up with lots of recipe ideas using pudding. The kids loved doing that.

My 3rd ds is in K so he will get to trace his letters in a lot of pudding. What fun and yummy way to write!

Just another way to use instant pudding.... Mix a box of pudding with a pint of heavy whipping cream and it makes an excellent filling for a cake. Regular pudding can be "injected" into warm cake or cupcakes with a frosting bag and tip. It makes your cake very moist and yummy.
