    You can chill the second layer a little but it will make it harder to spread over the crust. I usually use two of the 99 gm (3.5 oz.) net weight pudding packs. After you mix them with the milk, let them thicken a little bit before spreading over the second layer. It should be fine to use melted butter instead of margarine for the crust.

    This is one of my all-time fav desserts...so simple, but the flavors go together so well!! You cannot go wrong with this recipe - everyone loves it. Thanks for reminding me about it! I will have to make it next time we have company (otherwise I would eat the whole pan myself...)
