Over the weekend I experimented with a new recipe for this upcoming Valentine’s Day. As I was creating these yummy Valentine’s Day Parfaits, I kept thinking to myself, “These parfaits are turning out super pretty. I wonder what they will actually taste like?” Well… I wish there would have been a video camera rolling as I took my first “taste-test” bite! Mmm, Mmm! My eyes lit up as I declared, “Wow, these babies are GOOD!!!” My husband laughed as I quickly asked him to try a bite and together, we devoured that parfait in all of 2 minutes! (We may, or may not, have been smacking our lips the whole time).
This recipe does require a little time to assemble, however, it is easy to do and the finished product is definitely worth it! Each layer requires a refrigeration time of approximately 35 minutes, so while I created/assembled the parfaits, I was in the kitchen working on other recipes, doing laundry and watching the Pioneer Woman on TV (love that show)! Nothing like multi-tasking, huh?
Food presentation is always important and therefore I added cute little Love toothpicks and garnished each parfait with a dollop of whipped topping, shaved chocolate, and edible heart sprinkles. However, feel free to use your favorite shape/style of parfait glasses and toppings.
These gorgeous parfaits are great to serve any time of the year, but the colors lend themselves perfectly for Valentine’s Day, don’t you think? Here’s how to make them:
I hope that you love these Valentine’s Day Parfaits as much as the hubby and I do!
