Butterfinger Delight

I got the recipe for this wonderful no-bake treat from my mother-in-law because it's my husband's favorite. I'm frequently asked to bring it to get-togethers where it's always a hit. —Linda Winter, Enid, Oklahoma

    This was good. I used less milk than the recipe called for, you need the pudding to be pretty thick or I am not sure this well set well.

    I made this for my boss's birthday because he can sniff out an open butterfinger bar even if it was in Tibet. Instead of frozen reduced fat yogurt I use a premium brand of chocolate ice cream. I always make pudding using half and half instead of milk. The richer the milk the thicker the pudding comes out. So remember it is always important to use at least 4% milk but not 2%, 1% or fat free, then you would have to freeze it to firm up. I don't like the taste of frozen whipped toppings so I always swap them out for home made stabilized whipped cream. I know my version is much richer and certainly more decadent but it's dessert and it should be that way. Foot note: Just because it's richer doesn't mean you need to eat a smaller serving.

    I had trouble with mine setting to the firmness displayed in the photo. I guess photos can be deceiving. It tasted okay but would have been better if it was firmer. It seemed a bit costly and made quite a bit for a family dessert as well. It might be good for speacil occasions but then again I would want it firmer. I too was puzzled by the word "chill". Should that word have been freeze until set?

    What would be a good substitute for the yogurt? My family isn't crazy about it.
