These Peppermint Brownie Parfaits are layers of brownies and peppermint white chocolate mousse. Such a fun, festive and fabulous dessert for the holidays.
You can’t go through the holidays (at least I can’t) without enjoying something pepperminty. Just search “peppermint” on my site, and you’ll see how much I love it. Now throw in chocolate and peppermint together and you’ve really got a winning combination.
These Peppermint Brownie Parfaits instantly became a favorite from the first time I made them.
My son Zach definitely ate his fair share and if he could have gotten away with it, he would have single handedly eaten every one of them all by himself. The first time I made these I actually made one big trifle instead of individual parfaits and I’m pretty sure he ate at least half of it on his own.
Funny story about these parfaits. Zach’s friends love coming to our house because they know I always have something yummy to eat. Well the other night his friends were over and Zach came up stairs to get a drink. When he opened the fridge and saw there were a couple parfaits left he pulled one out, snarfed down a few bites and then headed back downstairs. He was not about to let his friends know there were brownie parfaits in our fridge.So to Zach’s friends, I’m sorry he wasn’t a very good sharer the other night. Please forgive him.
Besides tasting amazing, I think these are so pretty and festive looking.
We love the brownie in these rather than cake pieces because the brownies are chewy and fudgy, and there is just something about taking a bite of chewy brownie with peppermint whipped cream. . .it’s absolutely delectable. I could eat these every day.
You won’t regret making these! Just remember to plan ahead because there is several hours of chill time required.Print
