Hi guys! Who doesn’t love a good combo of different kinds of chocolate? It’s really undeniable, these things are pretty fantastic.
I just got my wisdom teeth removed this weekend, so my ability to eat normal food has been temporarily suspended, so a dessert like this is exactly what I needed. The great thing about parfaits, or their larger counter-part, trifles, is that you can really put whatever the heck you want in there. I basically always like to have several different textures, with at least one solid item like cake, brownies, or fruit.
My original plan was actually to make a full on trifle, but I couldn’t locate my trifle dish. It’s cool, mason jars are cute, amiright? Plus it makes a bunch of single-serve desserts, generous single servings at that. I don’t know about you, but I love it when I don’t have to share my dessert.
Basically, this particular parfait recipe is made up of some of my favorite staple recipes; chocolate pudding, brownies, whipped cream, plus Oreo cookies. If you’ve never made your own chocolate pudding, today’s the day to start- it’s really quite easy, and it tastes amazing. If you’ve never made homemade whipped cream, you may have never known real love.
Here’s the breakdown of my favorite recipes that I put together in these pretty parfaits- layer in some chocolate pudding, a little whipped cream, brownie chunks, Oreo chunks, and repeat the whole thing until your jars are full. Share them with your friends, or hoard them in your fridge for your own enjoyment!
