This dessert is just perfect - parfait means "perfect" in French!
American parfaits are usually prepared in a tall glass filled with a layer of ice cream
or pudding and whipped cream with the addition of your choice
of any other delicious ingredients!
This recipe calls for pudding...
Growing up...I remember my mom making chocolate pudding for me
and my 6 siblings.
She made it on the stove - the cooked kind!
As it cooled in the fridge it would form a thin layer on the top that was quite thick.
Any body out there remember this?
I never liked this top layer - yuck - so I would scrap it off with my spoon before I ate it!
"Instant pudding" hadn't come out yet! I prefer that today!
