I finally decided to make something new. Something sweet and it was D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S. !!!!!
Chocolate Nutella Parfait
Graham crackers, crumbled
1 cup nutella
1 (8 ounce) block cream cheese, softened
4 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 (12 ounce) bag milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup milk
Crush graham crackers to liking !
In a seperate bowl mix chocolate chips and milk. Melt chocolate chips and milk in microwave by using intervals , this prevents burning ! You can also use a double boiler, just remove off heat once all chips are melted to firm the ganache.
If you prefer to make home made whipped cream, beat cream and vanilla together until you get a one inch peak. Using one 8 oz tub of store bought whipped cream will suffice.
In another mixing bowl, mix cream cheese, powdered sugar and nutella together ! Add the whipped cream to nutella mixture to make light and fluffy. I saved a little to top dessert.
In your chosen serving dish ( I chose a tall white stemless wine glass like the blog ), add crushed graham crackers to begin the layering, then nutella whip, ganache, and start over ! I added whipped cream to the top before serving. I had enough ingredients to stretch it to SIX and each glass was a healthy serving !
I chose to pre-make these and refrigerate till serving. By doing this is hardens both mixtures making the desert almost like a fudge consistency. Assembling the desert right when serving will give your guest a more whippy type of dessert. Nevertheless, both ways are delicious. Like I said I made this dessert my own – my part was the home made whipped cream and the nutella. The original dessert used peanut butter and store bought whipped cream. Using any kinda of substitute like nutella, almond butter, whatever comes to mind would work.
Hope you and your guest enjoy this as much as mine did ! Happy Saturday
