To complete the meal, Bissy assembles festive Candy Cane Parfaits. "No one ever guesses that five ingredients are all it takes to make these layered holiday desserts," she shares. A sprinkling of crushed candy canes is the refreshing final touch to the single-serving sweets.
- 2 cups cold milk
- 1 package (3.9 ounces) instant chocolate pudding mix
- 24 Oreo cookies, crushed
- 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
- 3 candy canes, crushed
- In a bowl, beat milk and pudding mix on low speed for 2 minutes. Divide half of the cookie crumbs among six parfait glasses. Layer with half of the pudding and whipped topping. Repeat cookie and pudding layers. Dollop with remaining whipped topping; sprinkle with candy canes. Yield: 6 servings.
