Mascarpone, Coffee and Chocolate Parfait

This chocolate parfait dessert is some-what a combination of an English trifle and Tiramisu. It’s made of mascarpone and coffee cream layered with chocolate ganache and Oreo crumbs.

You will only need a few minutes to make it because it’s so easy to make, and the result is both delicious and beautiful.
