Pudding Parfaits (with Raspberries)
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2 layered mini parfaits
This is cinch to make and even easier to eat! Perfect for Valentine’s day, or when you want a no-bake dessert.
What to get:
  • 1 (3.56 oz) package of Hershey’s White Chocolate Pudding Mix (Instant)
  • 1 (3.56 oz) package of Hershey’s Special Dark Pudding Mix (Instant)
  • Cold milk for pudding, according to package directions
  • 2 cups fresh raspberries, cleaned
  • 1 tub cool whip topping, defrosted
  • 1 cup cookie crumbles (I used raspberry chocolate Madeline’s)
  • Chocolate shavings (I used a chocolate bar & microplane to get shavings, optional)
  • Valentine’s Day colored sprinkles for topping (optional)
  • Fresh raspberries for garnish (optional)
What to do:
  1. In 2 small glass parfait cups (or small glass bowls) place a bottom layer of the cookie crumbles (equally divided between cups).
  2. According to the instant white chocolate pudding mix, mix pudding and pour layer over cookie crumbles (less than half of glass or bowl height), into both parfait bowls (any remaining pudding can be poured into additional serving bowls and refrigerated).
  3. Chill in refrigerator for 20-30 minutes, uncovered.
  4. While pudding sets in fridge crush the fresh raspberries with a spoon and set aside.
  5. Once 1st pudding layer is set, remove bowls from fridge and spoon thin and even layer of the crushed raspberries onto white choc pudding layer.
  6. Next spread a thin layer of whipped topping onto he raspberry layer.
  7. According to package directions, make the Special Dark Chocolate instant pudding in a bowl with a whisk, and pour final layer to almost top of bowl or cup.
  8. Refrigerate the parfaits to set chocolate pudding, 20-30 more minutes uncovered (any remaining pudding can be poured into additional serving bowls and refrigerated).
  9. After top layer of pudding is set, before serving, remove parfaits from fridge and top with dollop of whipped topping, chocolate shavings, a fresh raspberry, and sprinkles.
I used instant pudding mix, but you can definitely use the cook and serve variety, though each layer of pudding will need to set in the fridge! You can use any variety of cookie to crumble, if I had homed chocolate chunk cookies, it would have gone perfectly!
