Chocolate Mint Parfaits

  • 2 cups plus 1 tablespoon cold 2% milk, divided (I used skim)
  • 1 package instant chocolate pudding mix (I used sf/ff)
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened (I used lite)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon mint extract
  • 1 cup whipped topping (I used lite)
  • Mint Andes candies, optional (I used 4, 1 per parfait)

In a large bowl, whisk 2 cups milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes; set aside. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, extract and remaining milk. Fold in whipped topping.

Spoon half of the pudding into four parfait glasses. Top with cream cheese mixture. Top with remaining pudding. Garnish with candies if desired. Yield: 4 servings.

Nutritional Facts 1 serving (calculated without candies) equals 323 calories, 16 g fat (11 g saturated fat), 41 mg cholesterol, 555 mg sodium, 39 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 7 g protein.

My NI calculated as above (including 4 Andes candies), plus an additional Tbsp of cool whip on top of each parfait, came to 238 calories per parfait.
