Very good and easy. Tasted just like mom used to make,so it was not only delicious but brought back some good memories. I used sugar-free pudding to cut down on some of the sugar but it was still great! Another one that's a definate keeper!

This was good. I switched out the chocolate syrup for chocolate hot fudge, which I think was much yummier. I would have used more actually, because there was so much cream to chocolate ratio.

I just had this last night....and I must say it was tres delish! I WILL say to use butter rather than margerine tho...and we skipped the chocolate and nuts. French Vanilla pudding is yummier than plain too! You can use sugar free and it's still awesome! Altogether a very nice little dessert that's versatile and not too sweet.

I made this using sugar free pistachio pudding and sprinkled the top with pecans before serving. I loved the whole thing, but no one else in the house liked the cream puff crust and only ate the filling. Regardless of what the others thought, I'm still going to give this 5 stars.

My husband loved this cake. He couldn't stop eating it and I've got to admit it was fabulous. It is a definite keeper.

So good and yummy, everyone loved it. Vanilla or Chocolate pudding is great. The cook and serve pudding tastes a little better and fresh made whipped cream adds an added richness to it. Very good recipe and easy to make.

Just made this today on my new gas range (wanted to try out the oven). I've only got one thing to say...WOW!!! This recipe was not only easy but delicious. I didn't use chocolate syrup simply because neither I or hubby like it. Sliced some strawberries and put them on top. I did have to increase the baking time for the cream puff to 35 mins. and it turned out a beautiful golden brown. It's a "keeper recipe" and I thank you for sharing it Zipity.
