Made for the Mar Photo Challenge (using coffee) + my MIL & DH who both have a *huge sweet tooth* ! This is so fun to make, pretty & yummy too. The coffee flavor is subtle & has more impact as the color variant than it does on the flavor. I made as written & split it to get 3 equal (& generous) servings in brandy snifters. For presentation & easy layering, it works best to start w/the choc layer on the bottom, the vanilla layer next & finish w/the Au Lait layer as the Au Lait layer is a bit thinner & spreads easily over the surface. This is easy, make-ahead & would be a great kid-pleaser for a spec family occasion, when your kids have friends to visit or when adults just feel like a sweet treat. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Follow the directions on the package for preparing the vanilla pudding: add 2 cups of cold milk and pudding mix in a bowl and whisk for two minutes.
  2. In a separate bowl, prepare the chocolate pudding. The directions call for 2 cups of milk. Instead, put in 1 1/2 cups of milk and 1/2 cup of chilled coffee and pudding mix in a bowl and whisk for two minutes.
  3. Transfer about 4 tablespoons of the vanilla and 4 tablespoons of the chocolate pudding to a third bowl. Add 2 more tablespoons of coffee to this batch. Whisk this batch. It should appear a few shades lighter than the chocolate pudding's color. Drink the remainder of the coffee.
  4. Layer in cups or parfait glasses. Refrigerate for five minutes. Garnish with whipped cream before serving.
