S'More Parfaits

I get a weekly light dessert e-mail from Taste of Home. This week's looked too good not to try - S'mores and parfait mixed together? Sign me up!

2 cups cold milk
1 package (3.9 ounces) instant chocolate fudge or chocolate pudding mix
2 cups coarsely crushed graham crackers (about 24 squares)
1 cup miniature marshmallows
4 tablespoons miniature semisweet chocolate chips

In a bowl, whisk milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set.

Spoon 3 tablespoons each into four parfait glasses. Layer each with 1/4 cup cracker crumbs, 3 tablespoons pudding, 1/4 cup marshmallows and 1 tablespoon chocolate chips. Top with the remaining pudding and crumbs. Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.

Yield: 4 servings.

You can also put it all in one bowl to create a dessert more like a trifle - works best with a clear bowl to see the layers. I don't have one like that, as you can see from the picture, but it tastes great all the same. Just layer 1/3 of the pudding, 1/2 of the cracker crumbs, 1/3 of the pudding, all the marshmallows, all the chocolate chips, the rest of the pudding, and the rest of the crumbs. Let set in the refrigerator.
