Ingredients:

 
  • 1 1/2 cup eggnog

  • 1/4 cup spiced Rum (optional)

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

 
 

Directions

  1. Combine instant vanilla pudding mix with eggnog, rum, cinnamon and nutmeg. Whisk until powder dissolves. Refrigerate until pudding is firm, about 10 minutes.

  2. Put the bowl and whisk in the freezer for 5-10 minutes to chill. Beat the heavy cream on medium-high speed for several minutes until soft peaks form.

  3. Add powdered sugar and beat on medium-high until stiff peaks form. Refrigerate whipped cream until you are ready to use.

  4. Take 2 cups of the whipped cream and fold into the prepared pudding, stir to combine. Put the mousse in a Ziploc bag and refrigerate until you are ready to use. Save remaining Whipped Cream to top the parfaits with.

  5. Use a food processor to grind graham crackers into a fine crumb. Combine the graham crackers crumbs with melted butter and stir to combine.

  6. To assemble, place 1-2 tablespoons of graham crackers in the bottom of the individual jars. Cut a small hole in the corner of the Ziploc bag and fill the jar with eggnog mousse. Top mousse with a dollop of the leftover whipped cream and sprinkle with nutmeg. Individual jars must stay refrigerated until ready to serve.
