This is a favorite dessert to serve during hot weather, and can be changed to suit the occasion.
Try using Chocolate pudding and Pecans or lemon pudding and Walnuts or if pecans are preferred with any of the puddings.
I always make this for pot lucks and there is never any left over.
This is also a family favorite and is requested by our Grandchildren.
