Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookie Pudding Parfaits

  • Yield: 6 parfaits 1x



Chocolate Pudding

  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup full fat coconut milk (or whole milk)
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 3/4 cups full fat coconut milk (or whole milk)
  • 1 oz semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

To Layer


  1. Whisk together cornstarch and 1/4 cup coconut milk in a small bowl; set aside. Whisk together sugar, cocoa, and salt in a heavy saucepan. Slowly stream in 1 3/4 cups coconut milk, whisking until smooth. Bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, whisking constantly. Whisk in chopped chocolate and vanilla until smooth. Whisk in cornstarch mixture and continue cooking 2 minutes, until mixture resembles a thick milkshake and coats the back of a spoon.
  2. Immediately pour half the pudding into a bowl. Divide the remaining pudding into six 4-ounce ramekins. Cover surfaces directly with plastic wrap and chill for 2 hours – pudding will thicken as it cools.
  3. To assemble, add a layer of crumbled cookies and toasted coconut chips to ramekins. Top with a layer of chocolate pudding, and finish with more crumbled cookies and toasted coconut chips before serving.

  1. Puddings and custards have somehow fallen from favor, but recipes like this dazzling pudding-parfait will bring them back! (Look what happened to cupcakes and Bundts!) Love the pairing of chocolate and coconut milk, my only “problem” is to find a few leftover cookies!

  2. I’m all for bringing back the parfait, Laura! GREAT idea! You know, when I bake a batch of cookies, I always freeze some. Perfect way to slowly use them up. And I love you using coconut milk for the pudding. A great pairing with the chocolate!
