Total time
Chocolate pudding, cherry jam and real whipped cream come together for a National Chocolate Parfait Day treat.
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 6
  • 1 package Jell-O instant chocolate pudding
  • 2 cups milk (I use 2%)
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 Tbsp confectioner's sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 6 Tbsp Black Cherry Jam
  1. Using a rotary egg beater (or a whisk), beat the instant pudding mix and milk together for 2 minutes. Let chill and set in the refrigerator for 5 minutes.
  2. While the pudding is setting, use a rotary egg beater to beat together the cream, sugar and vanilla. It takes about 3-4 minutes to get nice peaks to form.
  3. Spoon pudding into the bottom of a champagne flute or other tall, narrow glass. Wipe rim with a paper towel to remove chocolate smudges. Spoon in a tablespoon of the jam into each flute, then top with whipped cream and garnish with a chocolate chip or a cherry or anything you like!
  4. Either eat immediately or chill for later.
