I hope you had an amazing holiday season this year.
We really had a great time as a family relaxing, playing games, and eating way too many Peanut Butter Balls and Dippin Dot. The only request my husband had for his December birthday was a case of Dippin Dots. Did you know that they can be ordered online and shipped to your house? Well, now you know. You are welcome for that awesome tidbit of info. Your parties will never be the same!
3 gallons later and our family has had their fill of those little icy balls. Well, maybe the rest of them aren’t ready to admit that, but I can honestly say I’m ready for some healthy eating this coming month.

Don’t kill me just yet. Want to know a little secret about these parfaits?
These awesome personal sized trifles can be made into a healthy treat! That’s right. With just a few substitutions you can make over these gorgeous treats into a dessert that is lower in calories.
I say lower because let’s be honest…it is a pudding parfait. There are some calories in it. Just keeping it real for ya. We all just need to practice moderation, right?
Now, if you are like me and ready for some “lighter” food, use a fat free or light cream cheese, sugar free pudding, fat free milk, and fat free Cool Whip. These few changes will give you the same tasty dessert with fewer calories. Perfect for getting back into those skinny jeans sooner.
But…if you are thinking that you have a few more days to rock those stretchy pants, go for the real deal with full fat everything. There is definitely no judging from this stretchy pant loving girl.
The little hit of coffee in these makes these the perfect dessert to share at those New Year’s Eve parties in a few days. We will all need that extra caffeine shot to keep us going until that ball drops into Times Square. Am I right?
Either way you decide to go, this dessert will rock your socks off.
I mean who wouldn’t want their own personal parfait full of chocolate and coffee goodness? Just make sure you share the goodness…remember moderation is key 🙂
