NOTE: Some people have had trouble with this setting up – I have not. I’ve used skim, 2% and whole milk. I believe that WHOLE MILK is best. IF you are concerned it may not set up, I think it’s ok to use a little less milk – 1.5 to 2 cups. Alternatively, you could use 3 cups milk and TWO small packages of instant pudding or ONE larger package. I did this method recently and it turned out PERFECT! No chance of not setting. I am leaving the recipe as is since others have had good luck that way, too!
