“Don't let the simple ingredients fool you! Everyone absolutely loves this creamy and simple dessert, and although I've never "messed with perfection", I'm sure you could try other flavors of ice cream/pudding mix and come up with your very own version of this. Try it my way first, though, and see what you think....( Cook time is actually time in refridgerator)”
