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
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!!
