May 1st is National Chocolate Parfait Day

May 1 is National Chocolate Parfait Day!

Parfait is a French word meaning “perfect” that began to reference a layered, frozen dessert back in the 1890s.

American parfait desserts are normally made by layering cream, ice cream, flavored Jello, yogurt, puddings, or other similar ingredients.  Fresh fruit, whipped toppings, syrups and fruit liqueurs can also be incorporated into any basic recipe.

Normally, a parfait is created in a tall clear glass, making all the layers visible.  There are even special parfait glasses used for the ice-cream sundae versions. Click here for my special “Kids in the Kitchen” recipe for Chocolate Parfait.
