Butterscotch pudding mix is a delicious and easy way to make pudding from scratch. Keep this mix on hand and you can have dessert ready in a couple of minutes.

Did you know that you can eat pudding warm? In the winter, there's something so soothing about eating a warm, velvety smooth and creamy dessert. 

This recipe uses vanilla powder instead of vanilla extract so you can store the mix dry. You can find the vanilla powder at specialty baking stores or online. It is slightly more intense than vanilla extract and lasts for a long time.

Like all homemade mixes, store in a cool, dry place.
