Chocolate Pudding and Strawberry Jello Parfaits


  • Jello
  • 1 (3 oz) package strawberry Jello mix
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 8 strawberries, hulled, tops removed and slice in half
  • Chocolate Pudding
  • 8 eggs
  • 1 cup Imperial Sugar Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 8 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 cups milk
  • 2 teaspoons chocolate extract (or vanilla)
  • Garnish
  • Fresh strawberries for garnish if desired


  1. Prepare strawberry Jello - In a large bowl, whisk together Jello mix and hot water until dissolved. Whisk in cold water for 2 minutes.
  2. Pour 1/4 cup of Jello mixture into serving glasses. Add sliced strawberries to jello mixture in glasses.
  3. Set glasses at an angle (a muffin tin works perfectly), and place into fridge for 4 hours or until Jello is set.
  4. Once Jello is set, make pudding layer.
  5. In a medium bowl combine 1 cup sugar, cocoa powder, cornstarch, and salt. Mix together. 
  6. Take 6 eggs, separate yolks from whites. Disregard whites.
  7. Add remaining whole eggs to egg yolks. Add egg yolks to sugar mixture and mix well.
  8. Stir in 1 cup milk.
  9. Heat 5 cups of milk in a saucepan; when milk is warm whisk in sugar and egg mixture.
  10. Cook on medium heat uncovered, until thick, about 10 minutes. Whisking occasionally. 
  11. Remove from heat, add in chocolate or vanilla extract. Stir well.
  12. Let pudding cool slightly and pour into a bowl. Place a piece of plastic wrap over pudding, pressing it onto top of pudding to prevent a skin from forming as it cools.
  13. Once cooled, stir and spoon into glasses on top of chilled jello. Place into refrigerator for 1 hour to chill.
  14. Garnish with sliced strawberries and serve cold.
