The name says it all: crunchy, caramel, chocolate. The "parfait" part is important too... because everyone knows that layered desserts are WAY fun!
1 tbsp. (1/4th of a 4-serving box) sugar-free fat-free chocolate instant pudding mix
1/2 tbsp. light chocolate syrup
1/2 cup Cool Whip Free, thawed
1/4 cup fat-free cream cheese, room temperature
8 caramel-flavored mini rice cakes (like Quaker Caramel Corn Popped Rice Snacks)
2 Vitalicious VitaTops (any chocolate variety), thawed
Optional toppings: Fat Free Reddi-wip, additional mini rice cakes
Combine pudding mix with 1/4 cup cold water in a bowl. Stir vigorously until mostly smooth and slightly thickened. Mix in chocolate syrup. Fold in Cool Whip and cream cheese. Stir thoroughly until completely mixed and mostly smooth. Cover and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.
Place rice cakes in a sealable plastic bag; remove air, and seal. Using your hands, lightly crush rice cakes through the bag. Set aside.
Break one VitaTop into small pieces, and evenly distribute the pieces between two parfait glasses (or any midsize glasses).
Evenly distribute half of the pudding mixture between the glasses, about 3 tbsp. per glass. Evenly distribute all of the crushed rice cakes between the glasses.
Break remaining VitaTop into small pieces, and evenly distribute the pieces between the glasses. Evenly distribute remaining pudding mixture, about 3 tbsp. per glass. If you like, top with Reddi-wip and additional mini rice cakes. (Each mini rice cake adds about 10 calories.) Enjoy!!
