Chocolate Cream Pie gets morphed into a dessert in a jar, a Mint Chocolate Cream Parfait, to be exact. Perfect for your next game day dessert or holiday get-together.

One of my husband’s favorite desserts is Chocolate Cream Pie. It’s a simple pie made of chocolate pudding, cooked on the stove, and then laid on a a chocolate cookie crust. Recently, I decided to make his favorite dessert in mint and chocolate, a favorite flavor combination — and in a glass, an easier form to serve to a crowd.

And at our house, every meal is served to a crowd. 

Desserts served in glasses or even jars are so elegant, too. Case in point. Much prettier than a pie.

And easier to serve!

These Mint Chocolate Cream Parfaits are easily portable and typically have less chance for spilling, making them an ideal game day sweet treat. Just mix up a batch of pudding and while it chills, crush some Oreos and whip some cream. If you really want to guild the lily, stir up a batch of my Chocolate Mint Syrup. Put the layers all together and what have you got?

A Perfect Game Day Dessert!

Stash them in the fridge, and dessert will be waiting when halftime arrives.

  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 3/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 2 cup Oreo cookies crushed
  • Chocolate Mint Syrup optional
  1. In a medium saucepan whisk together the sugar, cornstarch, cocoa powder, and salt.
  2. Add the milk. Turn the heat to medium and whisk constantly until the mixture is well combined and starts to thicken.
  3. Once it starts to thicken, reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips and continue cooking for 2 minutes, stirring.
  5. Remove from heat and stir in the peppermint extract. Cover the surface of the pudding with waxed paper and cool to room temperature. Chill in the refrigerator until cold.
  6. When ready to assemble the parfaits, pour the whipping cream into a medium mixing bowl. Add the powdered sugar and whip until medium peaks form.
  7. Assemble eight glasses or jars. Place a few spoonfuls of pudding in the bottom of each glass. Top with a layer of cookie crumbs. Top with a tablespoon or two of whipped cream. Continue layering the ingredients until you reach the top of the glass. Right before serving, drizzle with some chocolate mint syrup.

  8. Can be made up to 8 hours in advance. Chill in the refrigerator.

          @Mary Lou, yes, I know. I’m sorry. (I’m not into football; I’m just here for the food.) But, the men in my life are into both. lol
