Chocolaty Cookies N Cream Parfaits

Ingredients

(Makes about 6 servings in 6 ounce glasses, or 4 servings in 10 ounce glasses)

Ingredients:

16 fl oz whipping cream, cold
2 tablespoons sugar
2 (16 ounce) tubs all natural Belgian chocolate pudding*, divided use
24 all natural chocolate-vanilla sandwich cookies*, crushed into chunky consistency
1 (1ounce) square semi-sweet chocolate, to shave for garnish

Directions

1. In the bowl of a mixer (or using a hand-held), add the cold cream and begin whipping; once thickened slightly, sprinkle in the sugar and finish whipping just until stiff peaks form; set aside for a moment.

2. In medium-large bowl, add 2 cups of the chocolate pudding (reserving the remaining pudding) and begin adding the whipped cream to it in several increments, gently folding in to keep a fluffy and light consistency, as this is the “chocolate mousse” part of the dessert; once all whipped cream is incorporated, set aside and prepare glasses.

To Assemble (for 6 servings in 6 ounce glasses):

Begin by adding equal amounts of the crushed cookies to the bottom of each glass (about 3 tablespoons), next a layer of chocolate pudding (about 3 tablespoons), and next a layer of the “chocolate mousse” (about 3 tablespoons); repeat this process again for each glass, with another layering of crushed cookies, then the pudding, then the “chocolate mousse”, finally finishing with a final sprinkling of crushed cookies and a decorative dollop of “chocolate mousse”; garnish by shaving a little of the semi-sweet chocolate square with a vegetable peeler over the tops of each glass; refrigerate until ready to serve, or serve immediately.

To Assemble (for 4 servings in 10 ounce glasses):

Follow assembly instructions above only increase the quantity of each layer to about 5 tablespoons in order to fill each glass.
