This recipe is inspired by this Chocolate Raspberry Mousse Parfait. I wanted to share with you a simple recipe you can enjoy this St. Patrick’s Day or any other day. To make this  green vanilla pudding recipe, I follow the steps of the Chocolate Raspberry Mousse Parfait for the cake and I decided to swap the raspberry mousse filling of the raspberry parfait for a very simple vanilla pudding made using an instant pudding box.

Chocolate cake (follow this recipe) or you can substitute it for a store bought brownie box

While the cake is cooling, make the vanilla pudding following the box instructions. Which is to combine cold milk with an instant vanilla pudding and then use food coloring (I used 3 drops of the food coloring to obtain the green color).

-To get the sugar rim:

Cover the rim with lime and use a plate to add sanding sugar and do circle motions with the glass for the sugar to attach(like making a margarita).
