It's simple, add 1 cup of water to the package and mix well. Then you add graham cracker crumbs on top of the pudding (crumbs included in package), seal up the package and let it set for 13 minutes. Boom, backcountry dessert! It was really good, nice and chocolatey! This package was plenty for my husband and I, I would highly recommend this dessert for your backcountry adventures!
