I made these with cheesecake pudding instead of vanilla and they were SO GOOD! The other benefit of using cheesecake pudding (Jell-o) is that it takes less time to prepare than Jell-o's vanilla pudding; after sitting for five minutes, it's ready to eat, and it's just perfect with strawberries.

This is just okay, but in all fairness I don't think it was intended to be a 5-star dessert. I used just 1 T. of sugar and the strawberry sauce was still plenty sweet. I also thickened it with a bit of corntstarch and cold water. Still, it's nothing more than doctored up instant pudding. Actually, the sauce is great on its own, and would be wonderful over ice cream or pound cake, or to top a basic cheesecake. These parfaits are great in a pinch for a quick, emergency use of fresh strawberries, which was exactly what I was looking for. Four stars for the sauce, three for the dessert.

Wasnt a terrible recipe, the strawberry sauce was a bit runny though. I used both chocolate and vanilla pudding. The vanilla looked nicer, but I liked the way the chocolate tasted with the strawberries better.

We didn't really like the strawberry/jam layer. It looked beautiful in my glass coffee mugs with pedestals though!

Not bad! I didn't have any strawberry jelly and used a seedless raspberry jelly instead, that gave it a nice good kick. I also topped it with a little bit of granola for an extra crunch. Very easy to make.

Tasted pretty good. Not a dessert I would really make for company, but it was a nice light dessert.

I added some oats to the mix for the sweet taste and for more nutrition, for the kids. This was simple and was done rather quickly. The taste was excellent, though this is not design to be a 5 star dessert in a restaurant.

This is really good. I didn`t use the sugar because I find jam sweet anyway. I was glad I did or it would have been too sweet. But it was awesome. Would make again. If you don`t like too sweet leave out the sugar. But try this recipe, easy and yummy!
