Raksha Bandhan Recipe : Cookie and Cream Parfait | कुकीज़ एंड क्रीम पारफे

Monday, August 15, 2016

Raksha Bandhan is a celebration of a very beautiful bonding between Sisters and Brothers, where Sister express her love and wishes for the Brother's well being and the Brothers in turn promises to protect and take care of their Sister/s in all circumstances.

Did you ever imagine, how boring our childhood would have been if we didn't have any sibling to tease, to play and to fight with! I still remember when my lil bro came into this World, I was not letting anyone even touch him, he was like something precious to me. Then, we grew with our fightings on the silliest of things you can't even imagine...and today, I miss that wonderful time.

Today, in honour of this strong bond, I am sharing this Cookie and Cream Parfait recipe which is very easy to prepare with minimal cooking! Minimal so that even Brothers can prepare it to surprise their Sisters on this Raksha Bandhan!

I have made the Chocolate Pudding from scratch, but you can use the store bought Pudding mix and layer each element to make this yummilicious dessert.

Have a great Raksha Bandhan everyone!
