Black Forest Parfaits

I love it when someone sends me a great recipe! This comes from my cousin's daughter Amy. Love the flavor combination.  She just had adorable twin boys a few months ago.  Taking care of twins and time to create this beautiful dessert..she is definitely my hero!!
Black Forest Parfaits
by Amy
Ingredients:
chocolate pudding
crushed Oreos
cherry pie filling
whipped topping
maraschino cherries

Start with making some homemade chocolate pudding:
 1/2 cup white sugar
 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
 1/4 cup cornstarch
 1/8 teaspoon salt
 2 3/4 cups milk
 2 tablespoons margarine or butter
 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a saucepan, stir together sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt. Place over medium heat, and stir in milk. Bring to a boil, and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a metal spoon. Remove from heat, and stir in margarine and vanilla. Let cool briefly, and serve warm, or chill in refrigerator until serving.
*If you are in a hurry and can't wait for the pudding to cook use a box of instant chocolate pudding.

Layer chocolate pudding, crushed Oreos, and cherry pie filling and repeat the layers. Top with whipped topping and a maraschino cherry.

*Note Amy's husband thought a layer of whipped topping in the middle would of been good!!
Thanks Amy!!
