70+ Instant Pudding Hacks

If you google cake mix hacks, you’ll discover pages of results. I’ve written about cake mix hacks before too. I was looking for instant pudding hacks and they aren’t as easy to find without some digging. I buy instant pudding when it’s on sale or I have a coupon. However, I rarely just use the boxes to make pudding. Although that is a perfectly acceptable and expected way to use them, I tend to use them in recipes. I love making cream bars with their cheesecake like filling and shortbread cookie crust. More recently, I used two flavours of instant pudding to create a Berry Cheesecake Trifle as an Easter dessert.

I asked some of my blogger friends what they like to do with instant pudding. I was blown away by the response! I figured I’d get maybe 20 to 30 recipes and instead, I have over 70 instant pudding hacks to share with you today.
