Salted Caramel Cashew Parfaits

Last week I purchased a package of Udi’s Gluten Free Salted Caramel Cashew Cookies from Thrive Market. Let me tell ya, these cookies are absolutely exquisite! After I opened the package and tasted one I was totally tempted to eat the whole box right then! I was super excited because each cookie is jammed packed with chunks of cashews and rich caramel flavor. Exactly what I was looking for!!! 


After I resisted the urge to devour the whole package, I went to work making the scrumptious parfaits.


I crumbled up several cookie and placed them in the bottom of my parfait glasses. A generous drizzle of Smucker’s Salted Caramel Topping went on top of the cookies.


Next, I added a layer of gluten free chocolate pudding and a dollop of fresh whipped cream. You use either purchase ready-made gluten free pudding or use a gluten free mix and make your own. 

Repeat the layering process. 


There are many fun ways to serve parfaits, but I love this Le Parfait French Glass Canning Jar w/Gasket and Lid! Provides a great rustic presentation for parfaits, puddings, mousse, mini trifles or any dessert!

Tip: If you are pressed for time, parfaits are a quick and easy dessert that you can make in minutes, although they look like you’ve spent hours creating them!!!

    This is perfect to prep for an upcoming pot luck- I have those exact cookies (and the coconut peanut butter ones in my pantry) which would pair so well as a parfait- Sweet and salty perfection :) I once had a parfait which had cotton candy in it- So bizarre but so delicious!
