Tiramisu pudding parfaits are the perfect quick dessert with coffee whipped cream, lady finger cookies and chocolate pudding.
As much as I love to eat really complicated and intricate desserts, I find that I don’t usually have a reason to make those kinds of desserts or a lot of time to put into them. So, I tend to go for the easy, 20-minute sort of desserts that look like they took a lot more time and effort. I think that this is probably a little more realistic for most of us. Right?
Growing up, we didn’t have desserts after every meal; they were saved for special occasions, holidays or just as a little surprise treat. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always loved chocolate desserts, and chocolate pudding was one of my absolute favourites. It’s been years since I had chocolate pudding, but it’s one of those treats that is so nostalgic for me.
Nostalgia, it coats memories and moments with a rosy-coloured lens. Along with smells, I think food is one of those things that is really nostalgic for people. I wrote about quiche and how it reminds me university, popcorn reminds me of going to movies with my mom as we checked off all of the Oscar-nominated movies on our list, and chocolate pudding reminds me of opening my lunch in elementary school to find my favourite snack.
These tiramisu pudding parfaits were inspired by mixing together my current favourite dessert (tiramisu) and my childhood favourite, chocolate pudding. It’s a deconstructed dessert; lady finger crumbs make up the base, and then it’s topped with a scoop of a high quality pudding (I’m really excited about these new HERSHEY Pudding Cups), a scoop of homemade coffee whipped cream, drizzled with chocolate sauce and then topped with one last lady finger cookie
If you want to try these new pudding cups, you can find them in the refrigerated dessert aisle at your grocery store (and you can even use this coupon for a better deal). They also have a new S’mores flavour which is equally as delicious!
