This is awesome. I cook it a little longer so it will be thicker. Also instead of whip cream, I put it over top of a scoop of vanilla ice cream and serve warm, instead of refrigerate. Everyone I make it for loves it! Read More

My son loves peanut butter and this was a great fast recipe. I made it exactly as written, put it into individual serving bowls and added a dollop of Blackberry Jam. Fast, easy and tasts great. Read More

This came out tasting perfect....just like a peanut butter filling you'd have in a pie or something. THe only issue I had with mine was that my milk mixture burned to the bottom of the pan and so I ended up with some little pieces of burned milk in my pudding, but it still tasted great! I would just advise to watch that pan carefully:) Read More

Well, Edna, I want to rate this higher, and if I can have a more successful outcome consistency-wise using only cornstarch, I'll surely upgrade the star allotment. For me, though, even following directions, it just didn't quite set. Also, it was sweeter than we like. On the plus side, however, the whole concept of peanut butter pudding is really neat. We have always enjoyed butterscotch from the box, so this was fun to try. Thanks. Read More

Excellent flavor; gave it 4 stars because I had to revise it. It did not thicken using only cornstarch as a thickener. In a measuring cup, I whisked an egg, poured some of the hot pudding into it, whisked again to mix, then poured this mixture back into the pan and heated on medium until thick and starting to boil, stirring all the while. This helped thicken it; poured into 4 fancy serving dishes, and put a dollop of jam on top, just before serving, as another reviewer suggested. Read More

If you're having trouble with the consistency, here's your issue: The pudding *must* come to a boil, which could take 5 minutes, before cooking it another 2 minutes. If your pudding tastes chalky it's because you didn't bring it to a boil--that's the raw cornstarch you're tasting. The pudding will thicken as it cools, but if you want a thicker pudding (which I prefer, personally) use 2-3 tablespoons of cornstarch. Hope that helps! Read More

No one in my family liked this pudding. My husband and son love peanut butter and they only ate a few bites of this and said they couldn't eat anymore. I will not be making this again. Read More

This wasn't to my personal liking, but it came out as advertised and was gobbled up by the peanut butter lovers in my house. I did cook mine longer - not exactly sure how much, but until it got thick - maybe more like 4 or 5 minutes? I also used natural peanut butter, so there was a slight gritty texture from the peanuts - not exactly unpleasant, in fact I kind of liked that because it made it more peanutty. I think this would make a decent pie filling, maybe in a chocolate cookie crumb crust. Read More
