After: Pudding-On-The-Roof Parfait

Rick Grimes limps away from the burning shell of the prison, having been nearly beaten to death by Phillip Blake.

The violent destruction of their prison home is not even the worst of their losses. The murder of Hershel Greene in front of his daughters and friends; the disappearance and presumed death of young Judith Grimes; and the separation from everyone they love, have combined to nearly become the killing blow for the former Sheriff's Deputy.

With Carl leading the way, they seek shelter in a biker bar and manage to scavenge a few supplies. They finally find a small community with minimal Walker activity. Breaking into an abandoned home, Rick is able to rest and at last sees the full extent of his injuries.

While his wounded father sleeps, Carl goes on his own mission to find more food. He finds little in the way of healthy food; but is delighted to locate a 112-ounce sized can of chocolate pudding (which he consumes all at once while sitting on the roof of an empty house).

After gorging on pudding, Carl returns to Rick who he fears has died. Rick does finally regain consciousness and the two are startled to hear a knock at the door. They are overjoyed to see the smiling face of Michonne, who has tracked them from the prison.

While Carl's industrial-sized can of pudding likely tasted delicious; with only a few more ingredients, it can be transformed into something worthy of a special moment. Using only pantry ingredients, "Pudding-On-The-Roof Parfait" can be ready in minutes.

Enjoy it on the front porch of a safe-house…or on the roof of a not-so-safe-house.

And when the dead rise; don't carelessly open random doors in an "abandoned" house. You may lose an arm. Or a shoe.

Pudding-On-The-Roof Parfait

5 cups Evaporated Dairy, Almond or Soy Milk
2 boxes (4 serving size) Chocolate Fudge INSTANT Pudding
1 jar Marshmallow Creme
1 box Teddy Grahams (any flavor will do)

In a large mixing bowl, combine milk and pudding mix. Using a whisk, blend will until no lumps remain. Allow mixture to sit for at least five minutes.

Into the bottom of each of 6 dessert or drinking glasses, place a small handful of teddy graham crackers. Using a 1/2 cup measure, pour over approximately 1/2 cup of Chocolate pudding. 

Add a few more teddy grahams on top of the pudding layer and then 4 Tablespoons of the Marshmallow Creme. Layer on still a few more teddy graham crackers on top of the Marshmallow Creme and add one final 1/2 cup layer of chocolate pudding.

Top with 1 Tablespoon of Marshmallow Creme. Using a lighter, lightly singe the tops of the Marshmallow Creme on the top layer to make it toasty. Allow to sit for 10 minutes for the parfait layers to settle. Enjoy on the roof.
