1 (8-oz.) container fat-free frozen whipped topping, thawed and divided
3/4 cup chocolate graham cracker crumbs (4 cracker sheets)
1 tablespoon freshly grated chocolate
How to Make It
Whisk together first 3 ingredients in a bowl until blended and smooth. Fold in 1 1/2 cups whipped topping.
Spoon 1 Tbsp. crumbs into each of 6 (4-oz.) glasses, and top with 1/3 cup pudding mixture. Repeat layers with remaining crumbs and pudding mixture. Top each parfait evenly with remaining whipped topping and grated chocolate. Cover and chill at least 1 hour.
There's a major problem with this recipe...it calls for one 1.4-oz pkg of fat-free, sugar-free chocolate instant pudding mix. The only pudding mixes I buy are Jello, and I found out after mixing this up, that the pkg is 1.0-oz, 40% less. I mixed this up and what I ended up with was something resembling chocolate milk, not a parfait. I then pulled the box out of the trash and realized what had happened. More and more companies are reducing the size of the product, so they can keep the price the same which ends up in a screw-up like this. This was a TOTAL and somewhat costly bust. The only other pudding brand that I see at the store is Royal which I don't like. Southern Living, unless Royal's box is 1.4-oz (and I doubt that it is), you really need to get this recipe revised/corrected, so nobody else has to throw away a pkg of pudding mix, 2 cups of mix, 1/2 cup of sour cream, and 1-1/2 cups of Cool Whip. One unhappy cook here.
I used skim milk instead of 1%, but with the light sour cream you would never know the difference! The fat-free, sugar-free pudding mix is delicious. The only problem we had was inhaling the graham cracker crumbs by mistake, because we were eating it so fast!
I work in a nursing home and had the residents make these. It was great having something sweet that they could make and enjoy without worrying about high calories, fat, or sugar. We also tried a cream cheese sugar free pudding with honey graham crackers which was yummy too!
