Halloween Goodies!

Halloween is tomorrow!  What are you going to be?  My four year old daughter, Ellie, is going out as Pocahontas.   She’s so excited.  Unfortunately, we’ll be trudging through a couple inches of snow for Halloween this year. 
I was given this recipe a few days ago.  Ellie had one after dinner last night and she loved it.  It’s not necessarily just a Halloween recipe.  It makes a great fall treat and a delicious ending to Thanksgiving dinner! 

Pumpkin Crunch Parfaits
Makes 6 servings.

¾ cup cold milk
1 package (3.4 oz) instant vanilla pudding mix
2 cups whipped topping
1 cup canned pumpkin
½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 cup chopped pecans
32 gingersnap cookies, crushed (about 1 ½ cups)
Additional whipped topping

In a large bowl, beat milk and pudding mix on low speed for 2 minutes.  Stir in the whipped topping, pumpkin, and pumpkin pie spice.  Fold in pecans.  Spoon half of the mixture into parfait glasses; top with half of the gingersnap crumbs.  Repeat layers.  Top with additional whipped topping.
