Take my advice, you’re gonna want to grab a spoon after looking at this delicious dessert.
With Memorial Day approaching, I was thinking about one of my favorite desserts that the kids go crazy over. If you guessed S’mores? You’re absolutely right. I’m pretty sure many of you have already tried a campfire S’more before. Toasted Marshmallows , Graham Crackers and of course chocolate in a gooey handheld treat. Do I dare to say more?
For my family, it’s a must for us to start the Summer season with S’mores. This time around, I decided to surprise them with a twist of our favorite dessert and make them an S’more Pudding Parfait with fresh fruit. It’s so so good!
Parfaits are my downfall. There are tons of ways to make them and the best part is no one ever complains because they love them just the same.
My S’more Pudding Parfait are the perfect dessert to serve at your Memorial Day cookout. They’re so delicious and super simple to make on the day of your gathering.
With only a few ingredients needed, this recipe can be made in no time. In fact, it takes less than 15 minutes to make. It’s pretty much effortless. Since I wanted to put a twist on my favorite S’more Pudding Parfaits, I decided to place some fresh fruit on top like blueberries and strawberries. Sounds yummy already doesn’t it?
For this recipe you will need:
- 1 Package of Chocolate Pudding (Instant or Stove Top)
- Graham Crackers
- Whipped Cream or (Cool Whip)
- Strawberries or Blueberries
One of the best ways to crumble graham crackers is to place them inside a zipped sandwich bag. When using a wooden dough roller, you’ll find how easy it is to crumble your crackers to layer your dessert. If you don’t have a roller on hand, your blender will work just as great.
Next, spoon your crumble pieces of graham crackers into your glass. You want to make sure that you have created a base for your parfait.
If you’re using instant chocolate pudding, begin to spoon your pudding into your glass and cover the graham crackers right away. If you need to prepare your chocolate pudding, please follow the instructions on the packaging first. I did find it easier to use a small spoon to help create an equal layer of chocolate pudding on my graham crackers.
Before placing your marshmallows into the glass first cut them into four pieces. For this recipe, I used square marshmallows so they were pretty easy to cut in fours.
Once you have placed a dollop of whipped cream on top, feel free to add your favorite fruits and since this special treat would be great to serve during the Summer, add a few blueberries or strawberries. It’s the perfect dessert to end a very happy weekend.
So tell me, what is your favorite dessert to make for Memorial Day weekend?
