3 ingredient desserts: Chocolate Peanut Parfaits

Today's dessert is Chocolate Peanut Parfaits! What a great compliment to the peanuts in our Satay dinner! This dessert take a little time, so I would suggest making it BEFORE dinner so it can chill while your eating!
The best part is that its cheap and easy to make, so it can be used for large crowds, or just for two! (Or even one!)

Chocolate Peanut Parfaits
Grocery List:
cup heavy (whipping) cream
3⁄4 cup peanut butter chips
11⁄2 cups prepared chocolate pudding
Garnish: whipped cream and peanut butter chips

How to make it:
1. Heat 1⁄2 cup cream in a medium glass bowl in microwave until steaming hot.
Add chips; stir with a whisk until melted and smooth.
Whisk in remaining cream.
Refrigerate until cold.

2. Beat with mixer just until soft peaks form (don’t overbeat).

3. Spread 1 heaping Tbsp peanut butter mousse into bottom of each of 8 small stemmed glasses. Spread with 1 heaping Tbsp chocolate pudding.
Repeat layers once.

**Garnish and serve, or cover and refrigerate (without garnish) up to 1 day.

You could also replace peanut butter chips with butterscotch chips.
Or sprinkle crumbled chocolate wafer cookies between layers and on top
