Oh, chocolate. How I love thee. Let me count the ways. Actually, there are too many to list. The thing is, I really love chocolate. It’s my weakness. The perfect dessert recipe for me combines chocolate on top of chocolate on top of chocolate. And more chocolate. I wonder where my kids get their love of chocolate from?
You get the point, yes?
This past weekend, I was able to head to my local Walmart to take in a taste-testing demonstration of the new TWIX® Bites. Bite-size pieces of unwrapped TWIX®, ready to pop in your mouth and satisfy those chocolate cravings. I may have taste-tested a few when no one was looking before picking up a bag for a Memorial Day dessert idea. No one had to ask me twice to #EatMoreBites, let’s just say.
A TWIX® Bites Red, White, Blue, and Chocolate Parfait, pairing patriotic colors for Memorial Day with tastes perfect for a choco-holic like myself? Oh my word, yes please.
This parfait really is chocolate on top of chocolate on top of chocolate. With the crunch of TWIX® on the bottom as the crust, if you will, and a bit sprinkled in between as well, along with layers of chocolate pudding, some chocolate brownie bits and chocolate syrup drizzled over whipped cream and a few blackberries and slices of strawberries to tie in Memorial Day. I couldn’t think of a tastier dessert. Great after the obligatory bbq, too.
I’m practically drooling just writing about it.
Make these ahead and store in the refrigerator until time to serve. Though if you are going to make ahead, I would wait until it’s time to serve to add the final layer of whipped cream and fruit pieces.
This is an easy and delicious parfait with great presentation. It should go without saying that my kids really loved this dessert. It was a treat for them, as well as myself. I’m pretty sure I outdid myself on this one.
