A few weeks ago, the kind folks at Kozy Shack sent me samples of their new Kozy Shack® Indulgent Recipe™ Pudding, and this girl is In. Love.

There are four delectable flavors to choose from: vanilla bean, made with REAL vanilla beans (seriously, there are gorgeous flecks throughout the pudding), dark chocolate, salted caramel, and chocolate truffle. All four Kozy Shack® Indulgent Recipe™ Pudding flavors are made with premium ingredients, including real milk and no artificial preservatives or hydrogenated oil, which makes me love it even more.

Easy Pudding Parfaits are rich and decadent. They're the perfect weeknight dessert.

Eric may have found me face-deep in a chocolate truffle cup around midnight last week… but I keep telling him it was a dream. A delicious, delicious dream.

Plus, he has no room to judge. We’re those people. Not the ones that have a night cap each night before bed. No, not us. We’re those people that instead, share a pudding cup. A pudding cap. Ha!

This is a new ritual for us, one that started with the arrival of the Kozy Shack® Pudding samples. But since then, they’ve been in my grocery cart each week. They’re just that good!

Now, you might find this hard to believe, since I’m a dessert blogger, but sometimes when people stop by, I don’t have dessert to share with them.

The holidays are fast approaching, and I think a lot of us are going to find ourselves in this predicament as people stop by unexpectedly (but certainly welcome!). That’s when it occurred to me that my Kozy Shack® Indulgent Recipe™ Pudding could lead to some pretty phenomenal guest-worthy desserts.

Easy Pudding Parfaits are smooth with a little crunch from the cookies. A simple yet spectacular dessert.

There are lots of ways you could use these delectable puddings. Simply use what you have on hand to create something spectacular. I’ve always got mini shortbread tart shells in my pantry (dessert blogger: guilty as charged), so one idea would be to simply put dollops of your favorite Kozy Shack® Indulgent Recipe™ Pudding  in the shells, and top with a little whipped cream and sprinkles. Adorable and elegant. Check out the video below to see just how quick and easy they are to put together.

Another way to be elegant without much effort? Mini trifles or easy pudding parfaits, whatever you’d like to call them. Grab your favorite small glasses, be they hi-ball glasses, mason jars, or mini trifle glasses.

Now grab your favorite cookies. You have cookies in your pantry, don’t you? Chocolate sandwich cookies, gingersnaps, vanilla wafers – any of these will create the perfect base to your pudding trifle. And brownies would be ah-mazing.

Easy Pudding Parfaits are rich and decadent. A perfect ending to your meal.

Crush or crumble your cookies, and choose a matching pudding. Then add some whipped cream and any dessert sauces you have on hand – chocolate syrup or caramel topping for ice cream work here. Hello, layered, elegant, looks-like-I-knew-you-were-coming desserts!

It’s not hard to create a pretty dessert for friends when you’ve always got Kozy Shack® Indulgent Recipe™ Pudding in your refrigerator. They’re so good, I’m pretty sure tossing a cup at each guest would work almost as well as creating a mini parfait, but serving these elegant treats would probably be more socially acceptable. And pretty too.
