    Worms and Dirt Parfaits
    a creepy, sweet treat, Minute® Ready to Serve Rice style

    White Minute® Ready to Serve Rice
    1 package of gummy worms
    1 package of chocolate cookies 
    1 tub of vanilla pudding
    1 tub of chocolate pudding
    1 tub of hazelnut spread
    sprigs of fresh mint


    Microwave White Minute® Ready to Serve Rice for 1 minute per cup. Mix 1 Minute® Ready to Serve Rice cup with 4 large spoonfuls of vanilla pudding. In a 2nd small bowl, combine White Minute® Ready to Serve Rice, 4 large spoonfuls of chocolate pudding, and hazelnut spread to taste. Layer as a parfait, alternating pudding colors. Crush chocolate cookies and use them to garnish the top of the parfaits for a hint of dirt. Add gummy worms. Top off with a sprig of fresh mint. We tried sweet mint and chocolate mint sprigs and highly recommend them both.

    I thought I'd have extra time once our busy summer fun ended and my kids went back to school. Somehow, we're busier than ever!

We stocked up on many flavors of Minute® Ready to Serve Rice which can be microwaved and ready in just 60 seconds, so it's quick, safe and easy for kids to cook without involving a stove or complicated directions. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and desserts can be made with rice and it's a staple my whole family loves. Tell us your Minute® Ready to Serve Rice family favorites in the comments below.

    My 12 year old, gymnast daughter is the queen of elaborate dessert creations, but she's a lunch minimalist. She likes her Minute® Ready to Serve Rice on-the-go, straight from the cup. In just 60 seconds, you have fully cooked rice with nothing to add. Why mess with perfection? She's the one who eats dinner after school and then again after her 3 hour team practices when she's famished again. I'm thrilled she loves rice and with our pantry full of many Minute® Ready to Serve Rice choices, she can easily make it herself.

    The rest of my family likes to add other favorite sweet or savory ingredients to change things up a bit.
