  • 1 (1.85 oz) box instant butterscotch pudding
  • 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 24 chocolate sandwich cookies, crushed (about 3 cups)
  • 1 cup whipped topping
  • 12 small candy pumpkins


In the bowl of stand mixer, add the milk, pudding mix, and pumpkin pie spice.

Mix on medium for 2 minutes, then cover and refrigerate until set, about 20 minutes.

Once the pudding is set, assemble the parfaits.

Add 1/4 cups of crushed cookies to the bottom of an individual 8-oz trifle or parfait dish.

Then, top the cookies with 1/4 cup of pudding.

Add another 1/4 cup of cookies on top of the pudding.

Then, add 1/4 cup whipped topping.

Spread another 1/4 cup of pudding, then 1/4 cup of crushed cookies.

Place 3 candy pumpkins on top of the parfaits. Repeat until all parfaits are assembled.

Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.
