{Chocolate & Oreo Parfait}

{Chocolate & Oreo Parfait}

I recently was in charge of bringing dessert to a play group that Jackson and I went to together last week.  I wanted to do something different, something I’d never made before.  I also didn’t want to have to go out and buy all kinds of ingredients.  After searching through {and organizing} my pantry, I discovered I had several packages of chocolate pudding, just begging waiting to be eaten.  I soon came up with the idea for individual chocolate and Oreo parfaits!

To make Chocolate & Oreo Parfait’s you’ll need:

1 package chocolate pudding (I had the larger box)

milk (according to pudding package directions)

1 container Cool Whip

10-15 Oreo Cookies

small mason jars

{recipe makes about 8 small mason jars}

materials

To get started, prepare your chocolate pudding according to package directions.  It shouldn’t take too long to set once you put it in the refrigerator.  While the pudding sets, set the Cool Whip out to thaw if it was in your freezer, wash out the mason jars well, and crush the Oreos using a food processor.  I used my Tupperware Quick Chef….it’s such a great product!

I also mixed about half of the prepared pudding with half of the container of Cool Whip to add another layer to the finished parfaits.

After about 10 minutes, you should be ready to start assembling!

It’s up to you how you want to assemble each parfait.  For the most part I added a layer of crushed cookies between each layer of chocolate and/or Cool Whip.

Let me tell you, these were a big hit, and oh so yummy!  The best part was how easy they were to take in the car as well.  I just set them at the bottom of a reusable grocery bag with the lids tightly secured, and they were good to go!  These would also make a cute treat for Valentine’s Day next week.  You could add some red or pink sprinkles to the top to make them a bit more festive.
