This is an easy make ahead dessert… and trust me, if you like Boston Cream Pie, you’re going to LOVE this one!

There are two ways to tackle this dessert…  quick and easy with boxed mixes…  or homemade from scratch!  I’ve included both ways, if you have the time, I would recommend making the custard (ok, and the chocolate layer) from scratch, the flavor is so much better!

I like to layer parfaits in mason jars because it’s easy to just put the lid on and store them in the fridge.  The great thing about these parfaits is that they are great in ANY type of clear glass or plastic jars or cups!  No need to buy anything special for them!
