Recipe of the Month: Pumpkin Pudding
*3 boxes instant vanilla pudding (enough to make 12 one-half cup servings)
*1 teaspoon red food coloring
*1/2 teaspoon yellow food coloring
*1 9-ounce package plan chocolate wafers
*6 cups of milk
*Chocolate syrup to taste
*One 8-once can mandarin oranges drained

Combine pudding mix and milk in large bowl as directed on the package. Refrigerate until firm. Crush
chocolate wafers into crumbs, using a food processor, or put the wafers into a zip-lock bag and crush with a
rolling pin.

Combine red and yellow food coloring in a small bowl. Stir into pudding thoroughly, until pudding is orange.
Alternate layers of pudding with layers of chocolate crumbs in a parfait cup or glass for a total of three layers
of pudding. Top each layer of crumbs with chocolate syrup to taste before adding the next pudding layer. Top
each parfait with mandarin oranges and additional wafer crumbs.

Makes eight 8-ounce servings
