Creamy Vanilla Butterscotch Pudding Dessert

Not too much to share on the meal front so far today…I guess it’s a good thing I have something else yummy to share.

Mid-morning, after completing a great workout (these walking intervals + some upper body weight supersets), I snacked on half of a banana with some peanut butter.

Always delicious…not always so exciting to look at.

As I type this, I’m currently snacking on this lunch before I head out for the afternoon.

Again, it’s nothing exciting…some leftover veggies with hummus and a can of chicken mixed with a few spoonfuls of leftover guacamole from yesterday. I had accidentally opened an extra can of chicken yesterday for the buffalo bites I made, so I figured I’d make use of it today.

The guac had great flavor, so it’s actually making my little chicken salad quite tasty!

So over the weekend, I shared a little dessert that I put together to bring to the Turkey Bowl. My first attempt at the recipe totally failed, and actually resulted in Jay and I having to stop at the grocery store at 11:45pm on the way home from our Friday date night.

Luckily, the second time did the trick.

Many of you commented that it looked sort of like a candy corn dessert, which it totally does…but it totally is not candy corn.

I love this recipe because it requires no baking, comes together fairly easily, and well, it tastes pretty darn delicious. It starts with a crunchy graham cracker crumb bottom, topped with a light and sweet cream cheese layer, followed by creamy vanilla and butterscotch pudding layers, and finally, a layer of light whipped topping.

I had no idea whether or not it would be good, which made me nervous because I like to at least test a new recipe before forcing it upon others. But I figured it probably wouldn’t have really looked too good walking into a party with a dessert missing a random piece from the corner. Winking smile

I can definitely foresee making this again in the future and possibly playing around with some of the pudding flavors…Pumpkin/White Chocolate? Chocolate/Cheesecake? Lemon/Vanilla?

Ooooo, the possibilities!

    Oh yum! I am a huge fan of butterscotch. I hate that I can’t find any all-natural butterscotch chips, and I hate that once I open the bag I can’t quit eating them. Other than that, they’re great! haha Of course, I love the pudding too. :)

    I just made basically the same dessert but with pumpkin spice pudding. My BILs loved it. They don’t normally eat sweets (I know, who are they!!!) so having them rave about it made my day!!!!

    I just commented on your previous post that I was eagerly waiting for the recipe…oops! Looks delicious and can’t wait to try it!

    Hey girl
    Aren’t you concerned with artificial sweetners in sugar free products like the pudding?? I’m 26, found out i had cancer and fake sweetners are awful. They cause cancer. Do some research and save yourself from getting something that could be prevented. Artificial sweetners kill.
