Life is short, eat dessert first!

Choc Mousse Parfait

I am a firm believer of "life is short, eat dessert first!" My friends are a testament that I live by this. I try to adhere to this most times (when the kids are not around) because dessert is my favorite course. Someone once said Stressed spelled backwards is desserts. Coincidence? I think not!




So as the year comes to a close I want to share a one of my secrets & favorite desserts which will not stress you out in fact will have your family & guests talking about it. Not only is it easy & delish…its also an attractive looking dessert.



Chocolate Mousse Parfait

All you need:

  • Mini Parfait Glasses w/ Demitasse Spoons
  • Ribbon
  • Chocolate mousse
  • Fresh cream
  • Chocolate brownies crumbled into pieces (can substitute with whispers, chuckles)
  • Chocolate shaved for garnish

The picture is self explanatory on how to make. To get the mousse in the glass perfectly, try putting your mousse into an icing bag (or a ziploc and clip one corner off for a makeshift pastry bag) and use to fill each parfait glass 3/4 of the way full. That’s it!

Wishing you & your loved ones a blessed Christmas & prosperous 2013
