National Chocolate Parfait Day!!
In hopes of some warmer weather, we may put a spring in our step today as we celebrate! Nothing beats a sunny day accompanied by a sweet treat!!! May 1 celebrates a food holiday; it is national chocolate parfait day. Enjoying a delicious chocolate parfait would be a perfect way to end your day.
Actually, parfait literally means “perfect” in French! In the United States, parfait makers create parfaits the traditional French-style way with sugar syrup, eggs and cream or the American style, layering parfait cream, ice cream and/or flavored gelatin’s in a tall, clear glass topped with whipped cream, fruit and/or liqueurs.
In northern United States, parfaits sometimes are made using yogurt layered with nuts and fresh fruits.
On National Chocolate Parfait Day, chocolate would be incorporated within the parfait and maybe even drizzled atop. I think a chocolate Ice Cream Parfait would work just perfect today!! I can hear DQ calling my name for the Original Peanut Buster Parfait!! Ice, cream, chocolate and some salty goodness!!!
Enjoy your chocolate parfait today!
