Triple Chocolate Raspberry Pudding Parfaits

The combination of White Chocolate Pudding and Dark Chocolate Pudding makes these parfaits deliciously rich, but the chocolate pudding takes less than twenty minutes to whip up from scratch!

I keep bemoaning the fact that I don’t get to celebrate Valentine’s Day with my sweetheart this year.

It’s not that big of a deal really, but having been a single mom for over three years, it feels monumental to finally have someone special in my life.

Not to mention more than a little disappointing that we won’t be together on the holiday dedicated to Love.

Still, I can’t stop thinking about all of the special treats, like these Triple Chocolate Raspberry Pudding Parfaits.

I would make to let him know how lucky I feel to be engaged to such a great guy. 

 

 

White Chocolate and Dark Chocolate Raspberry Pudding Parfaits

This recipe for Triple Chocolate Raspberry Pudding Parfaits is written by Allison of Some the Wiser.

I dedicated my Chocolate Cherry Sweetheart Cookies to him last week.  

This week, I’m dedicating these Triple Chocolate Raspberry Pudding Parfaits to the guy who turned my world upside down on this very website

(Remember how he proposed to me right here on Good Life Eats!).

These parfaits look fancy, taste incredible, and are quite simple to make.  

The combination of White Chocolate Pudding and Dark Chocolate Pudding makes these parfaits deliciously rich, but the chocolate pudding takes less than twenty minutes to whip up from scratch!

I made my own crunchy chocolate wafer cookies.

I found a great chocolate wafer recipe here

But, you could easily substitute store-bought chocolate cookies without sacrificing flavor.

So, while my dear fiance will have to settle for some items in the mail (14 items, to be exact!) for Valentine’s Day this year, I still get to show my love and appreciation in the kitchen for my kids, family, and friends.

Taking the time to make an extra special treat, something a little out of the ordinary, goes a long way towards making someone feel important and loved.

What do you do to make your loved ones feel special on Valentine’s Day?
