Individual Chocolate Pudding Cheesecake Parfaits
What do you do when you see a recipe for a dessert that you absolutely, positively want to eat but you know that, if you make it, you will end up finishing the whole big pan, mostly by yourself? Well, first you try to forget about it but that doesn't seem to work so good. Then you wonder if you can invite half a dozen friends over for a coffee and dessert party but it's so hard getting people together on short notice...like...in about an hour?
3 Butter cookies
1/4 Cup low fat cream cheese
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 Teaspoon vanilla
1/4 Cup light or fat free prepared whipped topping
1 Tablespoon low fat milk
2 Tablespoons chocolate chips
3 Tablespoons sugar free chocolate pudding
Combine the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, milk and whipped topping in a bowl and beat until thoroughly combined. Spoon half the cheese mixture onto the cookie crumbs in the jar. Sprinkle a tablespoon of the chocolate chips on top.
Spoon the chocolate pudding on top of the chips, top with the remaining cookie crumbs followed by the remaining cream cheese mixture. Finish with the remaining chocolate chips and refrigerate for about half an hour. This makes one, heavenly, serving but you can easily portion up the ingredients to make more jars.
