A classic layered Jello dish gets an update in these peppermint parfaits. You can make these cute little desserts one of two ways: for kids or for grown-ups.
Set out 8 glasses (about 8-ounce size).
In a small saucepan, add 1 ½ cups of water and crushed peppermints. Bring to boil and stir until peppermints are melted. Add gelatin mix and stir until dissolved. Remove from heat. Stir in vodka or water.
Pour a scant 1/3 cup (2.5 ounces) of the gelatin mixture into each glass. Place remaining mixture in a small bowl. Chill glasses and the small bowl of gelatin in the refrigerator until slightly thick. This will take about 1-1 ½ hours.
Mix remaining gelatin (in the small bowl) with two cups of whipped topping. Divide this evenly, putting a dollop on top of each of the 8 glasses. Chill until set, about 4 hours.
Top each parfait with a dollop of whipped topping and some crushed candies and serve!
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
Heather is a Texas native and the blogger behind Heather's Dish. She's mom to Weston, wife to Nate, and they live in Little Rock, Arkansas with their two "stubborn and saucy" dogs Bunker and Keira. In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
