JELL-O Instant Puddings come in so many flavors now it’s hard to keep track…everything from flan to cheesecake flavor, but of course there are always the classic vanilla and chocolate flavors. Go to your local Walmart now and all of these flavors plus so many other goodies are available at the Holiday Bake Center displays. Everything you need to make unique holiday desserts including nuts, chocolate and other heavenly delights. Using these varietal puddings, beautiful desserts can easily be put together, instead of rolling out all that dough for the pies. Stop by the Bake Center and see what great products are available to lesson the work load this holiday season.

 

Of course at this time of year, there are also lots of pumpkin flavored goodies like JELL-O Pumpkin Spice instant pudding and JET-PUFFED Pumpkin Spice mallows, not to mention the classic canned pumpkin. Using the JELLO-O vanilla instant pudding plus a few other goodies at the Bake Center, I was able to come up with these desserts that are sure to put a smile on everybody’s face this holiday season.
