Gluten Free Butterfinger Parfaits

Thanks for sharing!

A couple weeks ago, the hubby and I hosted a birthday party for my mother who turned 83. I served a light lunch consisting of sandwiches, chips, a veggie tray, a fruit tray, and a fresh strawberry spinach salad to our guest. For dessert, I served angel food cake and ice cream.

Since several guests must be on a gluten-free diet (myself included), I made an additional gluten-free angel food cake. I froze the remaining leftover angel food cake, until last night… when I decided to make these delicious Gluten Free Butterfinger Parfaits!

Last weekend we had a sleepover with some of our grandchildren. I served these parfaits for dessert and boy they were a hit! When my daughter and son-in-law came to pick up the kids, I had two parfaits left. I asked Anna and Seth if they would like to try them, and they both loved them as well.

As a matter of fact, Seth asked told me I should blog about these parfaits. Since I received two thumbs up from my grandchildren AND my daughter and son-in-law, that make this recipe a double winner!

These parfaits are light and creamy and the individual portion size is perfect.

Don’t you just love an easy no-bake dessert, especially on a hot summer day? You can also get creative and use other gluten free candy bars in place of the Butterfingers. I always think it’s fun having options. 🙂

I hope that you enjoy these yummy parfaits as much as my family does.
