Jen's Chocolate Cherry Parfaits

"I found this recipe a long time ago and modified it to include the chocolate chips, whipped cream and creamed cheese. This is one of my family's favorite desserts. I would say if you make them up a few hours before you eat them it gives the oreos time to become soft and saturated with pudding. Depending on what size container you use, you may have left-overs."


1 small box (4 serving size) Jello instant chocolate pudding

2 cups milk

4 oz. cream cheese

1 can cherry pie filling (I like Comstock's "More Fruit")

1/3 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips

Oreo cookies (3 for each parfait)

1/2 container Cool Whip topping


Put pudding mix, milk and cream cheese in blender and blend until smooth. Place one cookie at the bottom of each glass/serving container. Layer alternately, pudding, cherries, chocolate chips and Cool Whip until filled. Garnish top with dollop of Cool Whip and one cookie.

Makes 4 medium - large servings
