Farmer's Daughter

Although 20+ years removed from the farm, farmer's daughter is still a title I enjoy.
Growing up on a farm taught me many invaluable lessons, two of those being frugality and creativity.
Now as a wife and a mom, I love to put into practice what I learned growing up as a
Farmer's Daughter.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Parfaits

Cool, refreshing pudding makes a perfect summer-time dessert. Add in peanut butter and nothing could be better!

2 Tbsp. peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
2 Tbsp. plus 2 cups cold fat-free milk, divided
1 cup plus 6 Tbsp. light Cool Whip, divided
1 package (1.4 oz.) sugar free instant chocolate fudge pudding mix
3 Tbsp. finely chopped salted peanuts

In a small bowl, combine the peanut butter and 2 Tbsp. milk. Fold in 1 cup Cool Whip and set aside.

In another small bowl, whisk remaining milk with the pudding mix for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set.

Spoon half of the pudding into six parfait glasses or dessert dishes. Layer with reserved peanut butter mixture and remaining pudding. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Just before serving, garnish each parfait with 1 Tbsp. Cool Whip and chopped peanuts.
