1 Package Chocolate Pudding
1/3 Cup Sugar
3 Cups Milk
1 Cup Cream or Half and Half
Combine pudding, sugar and milk. Cook until thickened. Remove from heat
stir in cream. Pour into molds or in muffin tins, freeze, easy and simple kids
love it, and so easy and quick to make for them, great for Nana to make when
the kids come over, gives them a real treat.
I seen this cute poem in my Amish Cook book too, no name under to give credit for.
A house should have a cookie jar
For when it's half past three
And children hurry home from school
As hungry as can be.
There's nothing quite so splendid
As spicy, fluffy ginger cakes
And sweet milk in a cup.
A house should have a mother
Waiting with a hug.
No matter what a boy brings home
A puppy or a bug.
For children only loiter,
When the bell rings to dismiss,
If no one is home to greet them
With a cookie and a kiss.
