Chocolate Buttermilk Pudding

This is one of those recipes that is so easy, yet so memorable for those who you share it with. It's also definitely a comfort food for me! Don't be put off by the "chilling" or the "cool whip" ingredients in the recipe as the chilling isn't absolutely necessary and the cool whip can easily be substituted with Spiff-E-Whip.


2 small boxes of instant vanilla pudding
2 C of cold buttermilk (If you don’t have refrigeration, this will still taste just fine.)

  • Whisk together until well blended.
  • Fold in 1 16 oz tub of Cool Whip. (You can make whipped topping from powdered milk as well, of course.)
  • Fold in 2 small drained cans of mandarin oranges. (I like to cut the oranges in half to create more “perfect bites.”)
  • Then fold in the entire package of Keebler Fudge Striped cookies, crushed. (I just got a bunch of them for only 50 cents each and then sealed them in a large Mason jar for maximum shelf life.)
  • Chill for about 30 minutes or more. (Again, refrigeration isn’t necessary to serve this dish–only if you’re going to store it. I like to fold in the cookies just before serving, but this is a still yummy even a couple of days out!)

Yummy yummy for my tummy. I love these recipes. Who says preparedness can't be fun? I can't wait to try it. Many thanks!

This is one I'll have to try too. Sounds good. Comfort food is what keeps me going somedays.

Spif-E-Whip says it needs ice water to mix up whipped topping. Does it still come out OK without ice water? Can you mix it by hand and still get fluffy whipped topping? I just ordered some and haven't tried it yet.

I've never used ice-water. Just plain tap water works fine for me.

Maybe this is the way to "hide" the buttermilk and get it down!
Sounds good!

What would we do without chocolate something in our food storage, eh? Yum!!

Can't wait to try out my Spiff-E-Whip and this is the perfect recipe for it.
