Chocolate Lasagna Parfait

Posted on

The concept with these Chocolate Lasagna Parfaits is exactly the same as the Chocolate Lasagna except instead of being in a pan and serving up slices of, each person will get their own little cup of Chocolate Lasagna deliciousness! And don’t worry, if you don’t have cute little parfait glasses, go ahead and use clear plastic cups. I like to get the 9 ounce clear plastic tumblers that you can find at any store.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 package regular Oreo Cookies – about 36 cookies – you will use the whole cookie including the cream filling
  • 6 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons cold milk
  • 12 ounce tub Cool Whip, divided
  • 15.6 ounces Chocolate Instant Pudding
  • 3 1/4 cups cold milk
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 10 parfait cups – you can use clear plastic cups – the 9 ounce tumblers work best

 

DIRECTIONS

 

  1. Crush 36 Oreos with your food processor. Alternatively you can put them in a gallon sized ziplock bag and use a rolling pin or other heavy object. You will get the best result with a food processor though.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, combine the crushed Oreos with 6 tablespoons melted butter.
  3. Divide the Oreo/butter mixture among the 10 parfait cups and use your fingers to press it down firmly.
  4. With your mixer, beat the cream cheese until light and fluffy. Then add in 2 tablespoons of milk, and 1/4 cup granulated sugar and mix well. Divide this mixture among the 10 parfait cups, spreading it over the Oreo crust.
  5. In a bowl, combine the chocolate instant pudding with 3 and 1/4 cups cold milk. Whisk for several minutes until the pudding begins to get thicker. Divide the pudding among the 10 cups, spreading it on top of the cream cheese layer. Let the Chocolate Lasagna cups rest for about 5 minutes. During the this time the pudding will firm up a bit more.
  6. Spread the remaining Cool Whip over each parfait, then top with mini chocolate chips.
  7. Place the Chocolate Lasagna parfait cups in the refrigerator for about 4 hours or the freezer for about 1 hour before serving.
  8. Enjoy!
