When my children were young, I would make pudding-from scratch, yes, scratch. Eggs, milk sugar vanilla and cook it very slowly over a low heat. I should have used a double boiler, but I am pretty sure I never had one! So I stirred and stirred. I did not want the precious pudding to scorch. Four children undoubtedly ran a muck while I stirred just in order to create my homemade pudding parfait a.k.a Chocolate Pudding Surprise!
Then the pudding would be layered in beautiful glass dishes. Sometimes I would even use goblets, just to make them all feel very loved and very special.
This recipe can be used with your own special homemade recipe, or a box of jello pudding. If this is to be enjoyed immediately use instant jello-for this post that is exactly what I did!
2 cups finely crushed Teddy Grahams
1 pint heavy whipping cream
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 large package of chocolate instant pudding (follow instructions
on package and use 2 % milk or make your own pudding.)
Chopped gummy bears or candy treat of choice(this is the surprise)
Step 1: Crush Teddy Grahams
Step 2: Whip cream, add vanilla and pink food coloring
Step 3: Following instant pudding directions mix pudding.
Step 4: Chop gummy bears into smaller pieces
Fill 4-6 dessert bowls with one layer of crushed Teddy Grahams. Follow with a few chopped gummy bears. Top with a small layer of chocolate pudding, and whipping cream. Repeat these steps one more time without adding additional gummy bears. Top with the rest of the whip cream and crushed Teddy Grahams.
