  1. In medium bowl and hand mixer or whisk, beat cream and milk with chocolate pudding mix for 2-minutes. Chill about 5 minutes then stir and pour into parfait dishes.
  2. Assemble parfait glasses on serving tray, place 1 teaspoon of chocolate sauce in bottom of glass, add pudding filling to almost to the top of glass.  Chill to set.
  3. In meantime, whip fresh whipped cream with electric mixer and whisk attachment.  Add confectioner’s sugar and extract, beat until soft almost stiff peaks.
  4. In piping bag fitted with star tip, fill with whipped cream.
  5. Right before serving the dessert.  Pipe dollops or stars on top of parfait, sprinkle with mini chocolate chips.

Make ahead, chill pudding and sauce in glasses cover with plastic wrap until ready to serve.  Pipe whipped cream one hour before serving if desired.  For best results pipe whipped cream right before serving.


Size of parfait glasses determines the amount of servings. Two pudding mixes will make 8- 1/2 cup servings.

Do not use soy milk or almond milk alone.  Half and Half is necessary to make pudding rich and creamy.  Can use 2% milk instead of half and half.
