Chocolate Coffee Pudding And Raspberry Parfaits by Chef Alex Guarnaschelli
1 1/4 cups whole milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 cups strong brewed Folgers® Simply Gourmet™ Natural Chocolate Raspberry Flavored Ground Coffee
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg, plus
2 large egg yolks
3 tablespoons cornstarch
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup seedless raspberry jam
2 cups freshly whipped cream
2 pints fresh raspberries
In a large saucepan, combine the milk, cream, coffee and sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then simmer gently.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the whole egg, egg yolks, cornstarch, cocoa powder and salt. Whisk the egg mixture into the milk mixture and, over low heat, stir the mixture with a wooden spoon. The mixture will eventually come to a "bubble". Continue to stir until the mixture thickens, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the chocolate chips and jam. Transfer the pudding to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap that directly touches the pudding so that it doesn't form a skin. Refrigerate.
In 6 individual parfait glasses, spoon a layer of pudding into each. Top with a layer of whipped cream and a layer of berries. Repeat layers 2 more times.

Preheat oven to 225⁰ F.
Use Thieves® Fruit & Veggie Spray to clean the fruit.
With a mandolin or knife, thinly slice apples from top to bottom.
In a small bowl, combine honey and Cinnamon Bark Vitality.
Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper and place apple slices on top. Drizzle honey mixture over apple slices.
Cook in the oven for 90 minutes.
Remove cookies sheets from heat and place apple slices on cooling rack.
For best results, store apple chips in an airtight container and eat them within 24 hours.
