Your so welcome Christina I'm amazed at how much food is over priced and how EASY it is to make it at home..sometimes the initial cost to prepare cost more but if it's something you do regularly the savings will be tremendous!

What is the reason for the instant pudding? Is it used as a thickener?

Could you use just cocoa?

Thank you :)
