Last week we had no Wednesday church or supper due to winter storm Ulmer. The week before we made strawberry parfaits that seemed to be a big hit. Here’s our recipe for them:

Strawberry Parfaits

Make 5x recipe for 600 servings (total for 600 servings is in parentheses)

5 boxes strawberry cake mix  (25)

10 eggs  (50)

2 ½ cups butter or margarine, softened  (12.5)

5 cups white chocolate chips  (25 cups)

40 oz instant vanilla pudding  (Make 3 4.5# packages instant vanilla pudding according to directions)

20 cups milk   (6 ¼ gallons milk)

60 oz coolwhip  (300 oz:  make instant whipped topping mix)

Strawberries  (fresh or frozen)

Preheat oven to 325* convection.

Mix together cake mix, eggs and butter.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Press dough into 5 9×13 pans (or 2 ½ 12x20x2 pans)

Bake for 14-18 minutes, or until light golden brown around edges; let cool uncovered for 1-2 hours and then crumble.

In separate bowl, whisk together the pudding mix and milk as directed.  Chill at least a half an hour to set.

Mix up whipped topping mix as directed.

In dessert cups, layer cake crumbs, pudding, whipped topping and strawberries. Repeat.

The Rapid City schools are closed tomorrow in anticipation of the coming blizzard. When school closes, Calvary Lutheran Church also cancels Wednesday school, dinner and the Wednesday worship service. We’ll see you next week for Pizza Ranch fried chicken!
