Coffee Chocolate Parfait

Everyone who knows me knows that I really like the combination of chocolate and coffee in desserts. To tell you the truth, I even add a little chocolate to my coffee cup sometimes (more infrequently than I would like – mainly because of a strict diet). Waiting for it to melt and then enjoying a nice hot cup of chocolate-coffee. YUM!

It often happens that I have to make a quick yet impressive dessert, what makes pound cakes or cookies less appropriate. This is how this chocolate parfait was thought of. It’s a coffee chocolate parfait made of chocolate cream, coffee whipped cream and some grated dark chocolate and cocoa nibs.

It’s so easy to make and really take no longer than a few minutes, but the final look is impressive and perfect for hosting.

Recipe Notes

  • Keep the coffee chocolate parfait well wrapped in the refrigerator for 5-6 days.
  • You can make vanilla cream instead of coffee cream by replacing the coffee powder with 1-2 teaspoons of vanilla extract.

  • It is recommended to use dark chocolate with at least 55% cocoa solids for a delicious result.
