I have 3 boys in the house ranging from age 14 through 21. It didn’t take long for these bars to disappear with them around. So if you have teenagers, don’t expect to have any leftovers!

    Just wondering if your Vanilla Pudding mix can be used in this recipe? And if so how much?

      Hi Jennifer. Hmm, good question, but I’m not sure I would try that with this recipe. The homemade pudding mix is more of a cook to serve type mix, this recipe needs instant pudding.

      • Jennifer Crewe says:

        Of course I didn’t think of that. I guess I was thinking of it cooked, cooled and then spread. I might just try it as I have a large container of your mix recipe in my cupboard. Last week i couldn’t remember the ratio and put more powder to milk. It tasted fine but was quite solid!
        Thanks for your help.

        • I’m guessing that it should probably work just fine since you have to cook the mixture anyway. Don’t prepare the homemade pudding mix as if you are making pudding though. The instructions for these bars uses the pudding mix, butter, only 1/4 cup of milk and powdered sugar. It’s a thick mixture that you spread on top when it’s all done. If you prepare the pudding mix as if you are making pudding, it will be way to thin and will not set up on your bars. Let me know how it works!

    These bars sound scrumptious! They remind me of an amazing chocolate peanut butter bar with a rice krispy layer that I had at a bakery in New York. Gotta love that classic chocolate-pb combo!
    Thanks so much for sharing a link to my no-bake bars too!
