Mint Chocolate Potted Plant Dessert

These are such a classy looking dessert and can be used for so many different occasions.  Garden party, wedding shower, bridal or baby shower, summer bbq, womens retreat…. lot of different ideas. They are EASY to make and low cost as well. When I was a kid my Mom made these, but she made them with gummy worms to look like a cup of dirt and worms.  This is the same idea but a much more “grown up” look.
Yields: 4 parfaits
Ready in 20 minutes

Ingredients:
2 – 3.9 oz. boxes chocolate pudding mix and required ingredients
1 package chocolate sandwich cookies
Fresh mint leaves

Additional Materials:
4 Half-pint mason jars

Directions:
1. Prepare chocolate pudding as directed on package
2. Place chocolate cookies in a large resealable bag and use a rolling pin to crush
3. Pour a heaping tablespoon of crushed cookies into each jar.
4. Add a generous quarter-cup of chocolate pudding to each jar (enough to fill about halfway).
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4, and top with a final layer of crumbled cookies to create the appearance of dirt.
6. Poke a few sprigs of fresh mint leaves into the top of each parfait, creating a little “seedling.”
