Nutella Pudding Parfait

When you put two things you love together, magic truly happens. This is exactly what occurred when I paired my undying  love for hazelnuts and moist cake into a Nutella Parfaits - delightful individual desserts.  My inspiration for this comes from Magnolia Bakery's unbelievably delicious Banana Pudding.  Typically I do not like anything with banana, but this is an exception.  Their pudding is so light and airy and between each pocket you will find pieces of cake.  If you are ever in the area, I am telling you this dessert just might change your life!
  These parfaits are very easy and can be assembled in just a few steps. I used the filling recipe from my favorite tart and combined it with the left over yellow cake from here, but you could definitely use chocolate cake to add another layer of richness and depth.  I then finished the parfait with toasted hazelnuts.  I wanted to transport these, so I placed a layer of pudding, followed by a layer of cake, the finished with more pudding inside of a mason jelly jar, however, this would also work very well inside of a traditional parfait jar. Impress your guests by serving this treat at your next dinner party or better yet a springtime picnic.

  2. So this is ridiculous, but I've NEVER had Nutella. Crazy, right? This little treat looks delicious, though, so I may just have to try it! xoxo, morgan
