The kids love the cold dessert after being outside all day hunting eggs and playing Easter games. Whichever holiday you are making this dessert I am sure it will be a hit. Everyone will want seconds, especially the kids.

Pudding Flavors

Indulge your dessert cravings with white chocolate and pistachio pudding dessert!

For the recipe images, all I could find at the time was Hershey’s white chocolate instead of Jell-O’s – but if you’re able to track Jell-O’s White Chocolate Pudding down, the result will be richer in both color and flavor.

Delight Dessert Variations

If you using vanilla pudding instead of white chocolate add some crushed pineapple and toasted coconut to give this dessert a tropical flavor.
