Is angel delight the same as jell-o ? Also do you use the chocolate jello or vanilla as you are adding the chocolate-shot?

    Hey Kat, the Jell-O Sugar Free Chocolate Pudding is different to angel delight and I’m not sure how it would work using that instead. We use the chocolate pudding for this recipe and it is available in some Tesco stores or online through amazon. Hope that helps!
