Recipe: Butterscotch Pudding Trifle

I have a few boxes of pudding at my house and wanted to make something that deviated from usual pudding recipes that I make, which consist of pudding pies or using the pudding in cake or muffin mixes. I’ve seen a lot of trifle recipes online lately and thought it would be fun and easy to make a pudding trifle. It definitely was easy to make and quite tasty!

This simple recipe uses only 4 ingredients. You probably already have most of them in your pantry. I used Vanilla Wafers in my trifle but if you don’t have those, you could easily substitute graham crackers or some type of  soft cake. You could even crush up whatever type of cookie you have on hand! I hope you enjoy this simple, easy recipe.

    So pretty! Love that dish you used. The last thing I made with butterscotch pudding mix was at Christmas– gingerbread cookies. I got the recipe from Tessa’s blog, Nine and Sixteen. The cookies were great and the pudding mix was such an unexpected ingredient.
