Chocolate-Oatmeal Parfaits

2 cups nonfat milk
23 cup sugar
13 cup unsweetened cocoa
3 tablespoons cornstarch
18 teaspoon salt
1 large egg, lightly beaten
4 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 12 cups quick oatmeal granola cereal
14 cup honey
2 tablespoons light butter or 2 tablespoons light margarine, melted
12 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 12 cups uncooked oats
12 cup whole wheat flour
13 cup almonds
14 teaspoon salt
3 cups thawed reduced-fat whipped topping


PUDDING:. Whisk together first 5 ingredients in a medium-size heavy saucepan over medium-high heat, and cook, whisking constantly, 5 minutes or until mixture is hot. Gradually whisk 1/3 cup hot milk mixture into egg in a small bowl. Whisk egg mixture into remaining hot milk mixture. Cook, whisking constantly, 3 minutes or until mixture thickens. Remove from heat; add chopped chocolate, stirring until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture into a glass bowl. Place heavy-duty plastic wrap directly on warm mixture (to keep a film from forming), and chill 2 hours or until completely cool. PREPARE GRANOLA: While pudding is chilling. Stir together honey and next 2 ingredients in a small bowl. Stir together oats, flour, sliced almonds, and salt in a large bowl. Add honey mixture to oatmeal mixture, stirring until combined. Spread oat mixture onto a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 350F for 20 minutes, stirring often. ASSEMBLY:. Layer 1 1/2 tablespoons Quick Oatmeal Granola, 3 tablespoons chocolate mixture, and 1/4 cup whipped topping into each of 6 (1 1/2-cup) parfait glasses. Repeat layers once; sprinkle each parfait with 1 tablespoons granola.
