Chocolate Pudding Parfaits


It's hump day. Instead of thinking the work week was half over today, I kept thinking "it sure does seem like a long time till Friday". Maybe it was the dreary weather, maybe it's this baby who won't come out, regardless it was the loooonnnnnggggeeeessssttttt Wednesday I've had in a long time.

But, you know what fixes a long day?

Dessert.

Even better, a 3 ingredient dessert, that requires minimal effort.

Chocolate Pudding Parfaits
1 box pudding (flavor of choice)
8 oz. Cool Whip
2 c. milk
toppings to sprinkle on of choice (I used coconut and chocolate chips)

Whisk box of pudding with milk for 2 minutes until soft-set. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Fold in Cool Whip. Top with your favorite sprinkles and enjoy.

It's as simple as that folks.

----------------------------------

In other news, since I'll be ending work soon and on maternity leave, I've been thinking a lot about compiling ALL my recipes from the past year and a half into a cookbook. One that I would put together right here on Blogger, have printed off, and sell.

Anyone interested?

Is this a good idea?

Am I biting off more than I can chew?

Feedback please!

  1. Yum! I think parfaits are so pretty :)

    If you're up for the task, you should compile a cookbook. I think it would be something you could be proud of!

  7. This brings back memories! My mom always used to make "Pudding in a Cloud." She just filled cute glasses with chocolate pudding between two layers of cool whip. Chocolate chips would really set it off :)

    And to answer your question, there is always room for another cookbook! I love having easy access to awesome recipes.
