This quick and easy dessert has my favorite flavors in it... chocolate, orange, and cheesecake. And just the right size for just me and my hubby. It is a snap to put together, but delicious enough for any gathering. Can easily double, triple, etc. the recipe to serve more than two.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is a decadent, cool and creamy dessert. The rich mousse is really the star of this parfait. It has a hint of orange flavor mixed with the cheesecake and whips up light and airy. The fudge and crushed cookies are perfect compliments to this mousse. This is fancy enough for a special occasion, but easy enough to serve every day. This is very rich... you could easily make 4 smaller parfaits with this recipe (just crush a few extra cookies).

Ingredients

4
Orange Milano cookies (I used Pepperidge Farm)
1 3/4 c

1/4 c
orange juice
1 box
instant cheesecake pudding and pie filling; 3.4 ounce

3Increase speed to high and beat until stiff peaks form, about 1 minute to 1 1/2 minutes. Scraping bowl occasionally.
4Using 2 (8-ounce) martini glasses (or parfait glasses), begin layering the parfaits. Place about 1/2 tablespoon of the crushed cookies into the bottom of the glasses.
