This Brownie Butterscotch Parfait will take you straight back to your childhood. Brownie chunks are layered with buterscotch pudding and sweetened whipped cream. It’s pure delight. Don’t forget the sprinkles.
I’m a big fan of nostalgia. I love going back to my favorite things from the past. From picking up a beloved children’s book to watching Clueless one too many times, there’s something so comforting about taking that trip back in time. I much prefer the original to a remake. Please, Disney, make something new. And no thank you to that Friends reunion people seem to be clamoring for. Just go back to the original.
I guess there are a few things I’m not so nostalgic for. Homophobia. Scrunchies. Do I really need to buy scrunchies again? Not everything from the past is good, but getting in touch with your inner child can be healthy. Let’s all stop taking ourselves so seriously all the time, and watch The Muppets while eating mac and cheese from a blue box.
A pudding parfait always makes me feel like a kid in the best way. This Brownie Butterscotch Parfait is chocolaty and sweet. I love the creamy texture combined with the chewy and sometimes crunchy brownies. I never want it to end.
This dish is not only great for kids, but it can also be made with kids. I used store-bought brownies and instant pudding. You could also use store-bought whipped topping if you’re not a cook. I made my own whipped cream because it’s ridiculously easy, but I would have been just as happy with Cool Whip. I am (mostly) not a food snob. Do what makes you happy.
What childhood favorites do you still love? Let me know in the comments. If one of them is Little Bucket Parfaits from KCF, take yourself back in time with a Brownie Butterscotch Parfait. It’s gonna be so awesome, kids.
