Halloween Dirt: Toddler Approved Chocolate and Whipped Cream Parfait

Every year at the big family Christmas party there is always a family-style size parfait, fondly referred to as “Dirt”.  For today’s post I created individual size parfaits, kid style.  When thinking about ingredients to create the parfaits the following came to mind: cake, whipped cream, and chocolate pudding.  I kept the decorations simple, but thought about our recent trip to our favorite Cape Cod candy story, The Chatham Candy Manor.  They had the cutest white marshmallow ghosts so I knew I wanted to use them in these mini-parfaits.
