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?

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.
