Chocolate Peanut Butter Parfaits


My daughter recently had a girls night get together and I was lucky enough to be invited!  She made these beautiful layered parfaits....just a bite...and just right!!  I mean, who doesn't like peanut butter and chocolate layered so sweetly in cordial glasses?

Chocolate Peanut Butter Parfait

Yields: 12-15 mini cordial parfaits

1/4 cup butter, melted
1 Tbsp honey
1 1/2 cups finely crushed graham crackers or chocolate wafers
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1/4 cup finely chopped peanuts
1/2 cup chocolate syrup
1 8-oz package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
Homemade whipped cream or 1 small container whipped topping
Chocolate shavings, sprinkles or peanuts for garnish

Combine melted butter, honey and crushed wafers or graham crackers in a mixing bowl.  Fill each glass with one heaping  teaspoon of the mixture, tap down slightly, about 1/2" high.

Add a few chocolate chips and some peanuts on top of the crumb mixture.  Drizzle with chocolate syrup.

In a bowl, combine the cream cheese and peanut butter until smooth.  Add powdered sugar, milk and vanilla.  Mix until well blended.  Gently fold in the whipped cream or whipped topping.  Carefully pipe or spoon the mixture into the glasses.

Garnish with chocolate shavings, sprinkles or peanuts for garnish.  Refrigerate for a couple of hours to set.
