This is the best - we had this in school when I was growing up and I've been trying to recreate it forever. The day we had this was always my favorite! It's great without the nuts too! (they didn't put nuts in in school because of potential allergies) It sounds simple but try it it's yummy! Read More

This was delicious! I had to alter it a bit - I used instant pudding so I had to melt the marshmallows before mixing them in then I also added an extra half a cup that wasn't melted. I didn't have crushed pineapple so I used tidbits and everything was so good! I wish I would of doubled it between my 3 daughters and I we devoured it all in one sitting! Read More

I thought this was tasty. You can really vary the recipe too...add a touch of lemon or throw in a few cherries. This can also be made lighter by using sugar free fat-free ingredients but still tastes great. Read More

Though I tweaked it a bit (I added a tsp of cinnamon and 1/4 tsp of nutmeg) I have searched for the perfect rice pudding recipe forever - seriously the best rice pudding I've had since I was a kid. Thanks for sharing this amazing recipe!! Read More

This was awesome! I made some modifications for our family's taste buds. We did not add pecans as we are not nuts people. I also did not add as much pineapple and added the marshmallows whole. I tossed in some coconut and it was delicious!Thank you. Read More

Very good. To make it a little healthier I used fat free pudding and fat free milk and no one even noticed. I'll definitely make it again. Read More

This should be called pineapple rice dessert because that is all I could taste. I liked the marshmallows being mixed in the pudding but did not like the pineapple taste or texture. Will not make again. Read More
