Enjoying a delicious chocolate parfait would be a perfect way to end your day.  Parfait literally means “perfect” in French!  There are a couple of ways to make parfaits. The traditional French-style uses sugar syrup, eggs and cream. The American style layers parfait cream, ice cream and flavored gelatin in a tall, clear glass topped with whipped cream, fruit and liqueurs.  The parfait has recently taken a wholesome turn using yogurt layered with nuts and fresh fruits, instead of ice cream and sugary syrups.

We were unable to find the creator of National Chocolate Parfait Day.  Our research did find this scrumptious dessert dates back to 1894 and seems to have originated in France.

We tried using both sugar-free instant and regular pudding mixes to make this chocolate parfait. To our surprise, we preferred the flavor of the sugar-free.

 

Ingredients

• 1 (1.4-oz.) package fat-free, sugar-free chocolate instant pudding mix
• 2 cups 1% low-fat milk
• 1/2 cup light sour cream
• 1 (8-oz.) container fat-free frozen whipped topping, thawed and divided
• 3/4 cup chocolate graham cracker crumbs (4 cracker sheets)
• 1 tablespoon freshly grated chocolate

 

Directions

1. Whisk together first 3 ingredients in a bowl until blended and smooth. Fold in 1 1/2 cups whipped topping.

 

2. Spoon 1 Tbsp. crumbs into each of 6 (4-oz.) glasses, and top with 1/3 cup pudding mixture. Repeat layers with remaining crumbs and pudding mixture. Top each parfait evenly with remaining whipped topping and grated chocolate. Cover and chill at least 1 hour.
