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.

  1. Although your recipes look appealing Your set up for printing sucks. I printed out a 1/2 page recipe and my printer printed out 3 pages, all but the 1/2 page was garbage. What a waste of paper.
