Notes
If you have leftover pudding mix, try making my St. Patrick's Day Shamrock Pops. That's how I use my leftover pudding mix and it's delicious.

For a quicker, easier parfait, pick up some store bought brownies so that you don’t have to cook them and wait for them to cool. If store bought brownies aren’t your thing (raises hand), whip up a batch of homemade brownies the night before you want to make these St. Patrick’s Day Parfaits so they’ll be cool and ready to use.

How to Make St. Patrick’s Day Parfaits

No matter what kind of brownies you are using to make your St. Patrick’s Day Parfaits, the key here is to make sure to cut the brownies the same size and shape of your container. For me, since I was using a small, round, glass container this time around, I used a glass cup to cut my brownies in a circular shape. And because my brownies were a bit thicker than I wanted, I cut each brownie in half before placing them into the parfait container.

If you wanted, you could also crumble your brownies and layer them that way, but I like the way it looks having the whole brownie as a layer.

If you want a thicker pudding, you could buy the bigger package (I think it’s 5.2 oz) and mix that with the same 2 cups of milk. I do that most of the time because I like a thicker pudding. But it works well either way so choose what works better for you.

Once you have your brownies cut to size, place at the bottom of the parfait container. Next, pour pudding mix over the brownie. Top the pudding mix with Cool Whip. Repeat until you get to the top of your parfait container.

I like using small containers so I usually only have to repeat once. Any more than that and it’s hard to finish. Two layers seem to be the perfect size.

Finish off the St. Patrick’s Day Parfaits by sprinkling a little crushed Andes mints over the top. And the final step is to enjoy your beautiful creation! That’s the best part, y’all.

    I like parfaits too. Especially because it can hide a cake or brownies that fall apart. You had me at mint and chocolate. YUM!
