How fitting, after yesterday’s post, that this week’s Parfait! recipe is based on Jell-O pistachio pudding. Don’t get your hopes up, though, this is not the kickoff of Jell-O Fest Week; I still have some books to go through, and, hopefully, some recipe submissions to come from y’all before I can pull that off. I also need to con, ermm invite, some friends over to taste the results.
Besides, I am not certain this counts as a “Jell-O” recipe, because of the pudding. It does make for one fine dessert, though.
Combine the pudding, one container of Cool Whip, the ice cream, and milk in a large mixer bowl. Mix together well – the whisk attachment, if you have one, works a treat – and pour the mixture over the crushed cracker crumb base.
Spread the remaining container of Cool Whip over all and sprinkle with the saved 1/2 cup of cracker crumbs. Cover and refrigerate for several hours or, more better, overnight.
