Jennifer, please help, my store only had the small boxes of pudding mix and 2 together come to more than the amount you have listed. They are 3.4 oz each. Would using 2 boxes be a problem? Would I need to change anything else if I do?

Thanks in advance

Hi Debora! It's probably not a huge deal to use 2 boxes. Or, you could just pour both boxes of the dry powder into a bowl and get rid of about 3.5 tablespoons. Let me know how it turns out!!
