    ms_bold's Note:

    Creamy pudding is layered with fruit preserves, caramel sauce or chocolate sauce and topped with nuts, chocolate pieces or spices. It is a great kid-friendly dessert that can even be presented elegantly for an adult dinner. From the December 2004 issue of Country Living. Cook time does not include chill time.

      Made this for Dh, the tapioca lover. It's not at all like my typical tapioca and guess what? He likes this one better. The nerve of that guy. ;) I used melted blueberry jam between the pudding layers.

      Nummy!! I used large glasses and it made three. This was the first time I have mead tapioca and had it turn out right!I layered it with caramel and then chocolate sauce and topped it with colored sprinkles. The color in the sprinkles ran a bit but it tasted great!! Everybody in my house loves tapioca pudding and they all love these parfaits!!
