I have never used bettercreme (actually using pastry pride) before and would like to try it out. I am going to use the recipe from Melvira 2 c Bettercreme 1 pk pudding and 1/2 c milk then fold in oreos. If I use the milk will it still be stable because I can't refrigerate it?
Never mind I'm pretty sure it does...I wonder if water would work to replace milk?
I always make mock Bettercreme mousses. I NEVER use milk because I want to take advantage of the shelf stability of the Bettercreme.
I make paste of the pudding mix using hot water. I beat the Bettercreme to soft peaks stage, add some of that to the pudding paste, mix until incorporated, add that mixture back into the Bettercreme and beat for less than 30 seconds to blend well.
Works like a charm and doesn't require refrigeration.
Why do you need milk? Just use more Bettercreme. Or you can use coffee creamers mixed with water or liquid flavored coffee creamers. This is what I do for candy that can't be refrigerated.
All great ideas! I didn't read this until after but I just replaced milk with water and it was so yummy! I had my DH taste it (he hates frosting and fillings) and he said he could eat the whole bowl!
