Berries and Bits



This is a recipe I picked up from my son's godfather's family.  Always a favorite at get-togethers, this combination of pudding, fresh berries, vanilla wafers and chocolate chips is beautiful in it's simplicity and yet decidedly decadent.


Berries and Bits

- 1 box Nilla Wafers
- Strawberries, diced, reserve some sliced and one whole for decoration (optional)
- Blueberries, reserve 1/2-1 cup for decoration (optional(
- Chocolate Chips
- Vanilla pudding
- Whipped Cream

Combine equal parts Vanilla Pudding and Whipped cream, making sure to save some whipped cream for decorating (optional).  Line the bottom of a small bowl with a single layer of wafers.  Cover wafers with a layer of pudding mixture.  Sprinkle strawberries and blueberries over the pudding then lightly sprinkle chocolate chips.  Continue layering wafers, pudding, berries and chips until you're less than a half inch from the top of the bowl, stop with a pudding layer if you plan to decorate and berries if you don't.  Use reserved berries and whipped cream to decorate to your liking.
