Nutella Eclair Parfaits

Estelle's treated us to the most fabulous homemade chicken pot pie this week. I just love that recipe. I added a few different ingredients this time. Instead of adding two cups of chicken broth, I added one can of Cream of Chicken Soup, along with about 1/2 cup evaporated milk. You know us southern girls....always adding a "cream of something soup!" Well, needless to say it was HEAVEN!!!!!

However, this blog posting is about the best, knock your socks off dessert, which I created on my own! Darling asked me (after he had just finished two helpings of the pot pie..."What's for dessert, Dahlin?" Uh-oh! No dessert tonight big boy. Besides, aren't you just as stuffed as a tick? If you are craving a little something sweet, we have some left over Halloween candy....help yourself! This seemed to satisfy that man o' mine, but I admit, I felt somewhat guilty not preparing some little delight to finish the meal. Sooooooooo, the next evening, I created Estelle's Nutella Graham Eclair Parfaits! "Fly me to the moon and let me sing among the stars"..........................he sang

2/3 c sugar

Place a Heaping Tablespoon of Nutella over Graham Crackers

Pour Hot Vanilla Pudding into Parfait's over the Nutella and Grahams
