Rich Cacao Parfait


I love parfaits. They keep things interesting. And, for an indecisive bitch like me, it means that I don't have to decide. I can have everything in one big jar. How wonderful.

This recipe only takes a few minutes to prepare and you will have it ready in the morning. All you need to do is layer them and if you want to take things to the next level, then make some nice cream!

*Make this recipe portable by omitting the nice cream and doubling the cacao cream or replacing it with fruits. It'll still be good!
