    I love this recipe! I've made them numerous times for work potlucks, bridal showers, and parties. Everyone loves them everytime! They're also great for a light and easy dessert any night of the week:)

    These parfaits are fabulous, do not taste like a "diet" dessert, are light in texture and very flavorful - my husband commented, "These are low fat? Gimme another!"

    Delicious and so easy to make. Fits perfectly in my juice glasses. Great little dessert.

    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!

    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!

    There's a major problem with this 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.

    Delicious! It was fast, simple, pretty, and tasty. Perfect for a warm evening. I added a tiny bit extra sour cream, because I don't like chocolate to be quite so strong. We'll definitely make again.
