A parfait is a dessert that is layered with pudding, fruit, ice cream or anything else you can come up with.  Parfait is a French word that translates to “perfect” in English.  If you give me a yummy dessert that has several layers of goodness inside, I’ll definitely call it perfect!

Vanilla Pistachio Parfait Recipe Variation

Use mint chocolate chip and vanilla ice cream for a cold treat! Just make sure you put them together and eat it quickly so the ice cream doesn’t melt!

How Long Can You Store Pudding

Pudding can be stored in the refrigerator for 5-7 days before you need to throw it out.  However, if you store this in the refrigerator for more an extended period of time after it has been assembled, the brownies will get soggy.  I would recommend storing everything separately in refrigerator until you’re ready to serve it and then I would assemble them.
