This looks interesting and is very quick. Would probably use cheesecake-flavored instant pudding and would drizzle with a maple glaze. The possibilities are endless with this method.

I am a huge pumpkin pie fan! Anything with pumpkin pie flavor has got to be good. Jell-O has a pumpkin pie pudding mix around around this time of the year. You can use that if you can find the pudding mix in your area instead of the pumpkin pie spices. The pumpkin pie pudding is really yum and I have used it in other recipes that call for a pudding mix.

These were quick and easy to make. Very sweet, but good. I might try sugarfree coolwhip next time, might not be so sweet.

As the first reviewer said, the possibilities for these are endless. I used apple cinnamon donnut holes. I also used a generic vanilla flavored pudding mix as Jello cost twice as much. Drizzled with a vanilla glaze.Turned out perfect.

Use pumpkin spice pudding and omitted spice. Very good! Let my granddaughters make them .

I made these last year, and while I am not personally a huge pumpkin fan, I did enjoy these...I have been requested to make these Again this year...even for family I'm not going to see who want the "leftovers" lol. I think I may try a maple or carmel glaze this year instead...see how the flavors mix. Very easy to make, even doing them with my kids (I work in a daycare, so might be something my older ones can do too!) Deffinantly recommend this!!
