    Bacon Butterscotch Chocolate Parfait! This pudding parfait is so easy that after I finished the butterscotch yesterday, I figured that while all of the measuring tools were out I might as well go another round and throw some chocolate in there too. And friends, I was GLAD I did. Because each of these is really wonderful on their own, but they compliment each other so nicely. Never mind the BACON on top! Tastes like HEAVEN! Oh, Happy National Butterscotch Pudding Day!

    Butterscotch Puddings

    Ingredients:

    ⅔ cup packed brown sugar
    2 Tbsp. corn starch
    ¼ tsp. salt
    2 cups milk
    2 egg yolks, slightly beaten
    2 Tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
    1 tsp. vanilla

    Instructions:

    Mix sugar, corn starch and salt together in a small saucepan. In a separate bowl combine milk and egg yolks. Slowly pour milk and egg into sugar mixture, stirring as you pour. Cook over medium heat until the mixture thickens and begins to boil, stirring constantly. Continue stirring and boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and add butter and vanilla. Pour into 4 small serving bowls, cool at room temperature and then chill for at least 2 hours before serving.

    Chocolate Pudding

    Ingredients:

    ½ cup granulated sugar
    2 Tbsp. corn starch
    ⅛ tsp. salt
    ⅓ cup cocoa powder
    2 cups milk
    2 egg yolks, slightly beaten
    2 tsp. vanilla

    Instructions:

    Mix sugar, corn starch, salt and cocoa together in a small saucepan. In a separate bowl combine milk and egg yolks. Slowly pour milk and egg into sugar mixture, stirring as you pour. Cook over medium heat until the mixture thickens and begins to boil, stirring constantly. Continue stirring and boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Pour into 4 small serving bowls, cool at room temperature and then chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
    Swirls the two together and top with whipped cream and BACON! Note- I found that the chocolate firmed up more quickly than the butterscotch, so should you want to swirl these together as I did, make the butterscotch first and let it start chilling in the refrigerator while you make the chocolate. These are easy (take about 20 minutes to make) and delicious, a nice little start to the week.
