Chocolate Parfait

What is a parfait? With May 1st being National Chocolate Parfait Day, I felt compelled to know the actual definition:

1. a dessert of ice cream and fruit or ice cream and syrup in alternate layers, often topped with whipped cream and served in a tall, narrow, short-stemmed glass.
2. any frozen dessert in which fruit, nuts, etc., have been folded into whipped cream or egg custard.
(Random House Dictionary)

Chocolate Parfait

Apparently, the word parfait is actually a French word meaning literally perfect. What I’ve discovered is that parfait generally means any layered food served in a clear dish.

My version of the chocolate parfait went very simple … sugar free chocolate pudding, whipped cream and chopped pecans. Easy to make and enjoy!
