Peanut butter and chocolate parfaits

This is the first time I make any type of individual peanut butter and chocolate parfaits or any parfaits for that matter. While I really liked the idea of having individual serving desserts I was not too keen on the flavors, my family was, I wasn’t, never the less I figured I post the recipe for all the peanut butter and chocolate lovers out there :-)

Maybe next time I will just make them with regular cookie because using lady finger and the liquor didn’t work to good for me!!

I will be making some more individual parfaits, truffles, tiramisu etc in the next few weeks because I really like the individual dessert kind of thing, plus I love these little glasses. I got them at an antique store over the summer for a really cheap price, so I will be using them in the near future.

I found that the parfaits were on the sweet side so you can go ahead and decrease the sugar amount if you wish.

Until my next entry


If you are using the lady fingers just dip them in the liquor and let them sit for 5 minutes until the liquor has been absorbed. Here you can see the before and after pictures!!

They are darling but my next ones will be way better. Tiramisu parfaits coming your way :-)


Peanut butter and chocolate parfaits

Yield: 4 parfaits


4 oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened, Using Greek yogurt may be a healthier option
1/2 cup organic creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
6-8 lady fingers, chopped
1/3 cup cacao liquor, if using cookies you don't need the liquor, next time I will just use coffee, I didn't like the liquor flavor too much
Chocolate fudge sauce
1/2 cup heavy cream plus 2 tablespoons confectioners sugar.
1 tablespoon dark chocolate chips, optional



In a bowl, I used an electronic hand mixer, beat cream cheese, peanut butter, and sugar until combined.

In another bowl whipped the heavy cream and the 2 tablespoons of additional sugar.

Place some lady fingers into the bottom of each mini parfait glass. Pipe or spoon a layer of peanut butter mousse onto the each glass followed by a layer of chocolate fudge sauce. Repeat layers.

Top with whipped cream and finish with chocolate chips, chopped cookies etc.

Nutrition facts calculated based on the recipe giving 6 parfaits.  

 Left nutrition facts is using Greek yogurt instead of cream cheese and dark roasted coffee instead of cocoa liquor.

  1. Simplicity at its finest and best! Chocolate and bananas in gluten free pastry…life couldn’t be better, could it?

  2. very nice! it looks so yummy. i would add sugar (a little bit) and cinnamon to the banana before putting it in the crostata.
    it looks like a galette or just an open pie. it is different from those? what exactly is a crostata?

  3. Now this is a beauty. That banana chocolate filling is genius!!

  4. Did the crust stay together? Every time I’ve made a GF pie crust, it’s turned into crumbly bits all over the place.

    • You know, it actually crumbled a bit so I added some water and milk to make it more manageable. That seemed to work however my pie dough was a bit hard. I think I might have over cooked it a tad :-)

  5. holy yum… i love those rustic tart types!

  6. I’d love tot ry this! It’s so great looking! I love Bob Red Mill products :)

  7. Wow, this looks tremendous! I do love Bob’s Red Mill!

  8. Wow, they look so delicious and yummy. I am a big fan of that brand too.
    I love crostatas, easy, rustic and oh so crispy and good.

  9. This looks absolutely incredible! WOW. I think I could eat all 4 myself. :)
