Mini Pudding Parfait With Sprinkles

Can we agree that mini desserts are just better? And I have to admit, a mini pudding parfait is just so cuuuute.  (Spoiler alert: They also taste delicious.)

I actually made these dessert in mini wine tasting glasses I had on hand. They just so happen to be the perfect size for mini pudding parfaits! These mini mason jarsMini Pudding Parfait Recipe  would also work perfectly (and I love that they have lids).

You can completely customize this recipe and get really creative. I used the classic Nilla Wafer cookies to make a cookie crumb crust at the bottom. (It totally reminds be of a dessert my grandma used to make.) Then I layered homemade vanilla pudding, jimmies (sprinkles), and whipped cream. But you can do any cookie crumble (Oreo would be so good!) and any flavor of pudding you like. You get the idea, have fun with it! This combo reminds me of my childhood which just makes it taste extra sweet. :)

Not only are these so yummy, they make for a great presentation. Line them up on a serving tray and pass them out. So fun! I like to use these mini wooden spoons when serving (they are the perfect size)
