The following ingredients will be needed to make this recipe. You will need instant vanilla pudding mix, a can of pumpkin, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and sprinkles.

How Long Does It Take To Make?

You will need to plan for 10 minutes of preparation time to make the pudding. Then you will need an additional 10 minutes to let it chill in the refrigerator.

Canned Pumpkin vs Pumpkin Pie Filling

I used 100% canned pumpkin for this recipe, not pumpkin pie filling. Canned pumpkin is pumpkin that has been cooked and pureed. While pumpkin pie filling is flavored with added spices and other ingredients.
