Oreo Pudding and Brownie Parfaits

I wanted a treat to tell my children “thank you” for their good attitudes and hard work after a very busy day of working in the garden, mowing the lawn, and washing mounds of laundry.

As I was putting away the dishes, my eyes fell on the parfait glasses that I had picked up at a garage sale and never used.

A quick look through my pantry revealed a package of Oreo pudding and Bingo! I had my idea.

First I baked some very simple fudge brownies and let them cool. Then I mixed up the Oreo pudding according to the directions on the box.

To assemble, Angel Girl helped me put chunks of brownies in the bottom followed by a layer of pudding, more brownie, then some Cool Whip. We continued the layers all the way to top, finishing off with a dollop of Cool Whip.

They were delicious! A perfect treat after a long hot day of hard work!

Spread into a greased 9 x 13 pan and bake 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
