Romantic Dinner for 2! PART FOUR: Angel Peanut Butter Parfaits

So, this was our favorite course of the evening. We really could have JUST eaten this for dinner, and been just fine. Maybe not the healthiest choice, but surely the tastiest!

And here is the recipe you get for voting for your favorite sweet: Anything chocolate and peanut butter!

I pulled this off of I highly recommend visiting their site if you are a peanut butter lover. They have recipes for breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner, and dessert! Anyways, easy dessert. Here we go!


1 angel food cake (I bought mine at Kroger)
1 package (6 serving size) INSTANT sugar-free vanilla pudding and pie mix (JELLO brand)
1 package (6 serving size) INSTANT sugar-free chocolate pudding and pie mix (JELLO brand)
5 cups of Skim Milk
1/2 cup Reduced-Fat Jif Creamy Peanut Butter
Cool Whip (Optional)
Strawberries or any fruit for topping and garnish (Optional)


That's all you need . Here's how you make it:

Dice Angel-Food Cake into 1 inch cubes. Place in a large bowl

In a blender or food processor, combine vanilla pudding mix, 2.5 cups of milk, and peanut butter. Blend until smooth. Pour over cake and fold gently to coat the cake.


Cover and refrigerate at least one hour.
In a medium bowl, combine chocolate pudding mix and 2.5 cups of milk. Whisk about 2 minutes until well combined. Cover and put in the refrigerator at least one hour. (I didn't take a picture because I think you can all make instant pudding without me showing you how!)

When ready to serve, layer the peanut butter cake, then the chocolate pudding. Repeat until you get to the top of your serving cup. Top with Whipped Cream and Sliced Strawberry


These were TO-DIE-FOR. Wow. So, so good. You could make this into a small trifle if you wanted to serve it that way. But individual parfaits are the way to go on this one! I promise.
Enjoy :)

OH! And here was our "Table-scape" that I set up for the dinner.


You can't tell from this picture because I needed light, but it was all candle-light when we ate :) Such a fun date night!
