Sugar Free Chocolate/Vanilla Parfait

In truth this is a: Sugar free, fat free, gluten free chocolate and vanilla parfait.

This recipe is from my mother! Apparently my mother made this parfait last year for her work holiday party, and everyone adored it so much that they asked her to make it again! Since that seems awesome to me, I decided I should share the recipe with you guys! This little concoction is fast, simple, and looks very yummy, my mother makes quite a mean parfait, to my surprise! I don’t know how I never noticed she made it last year, I would have thought she’d say something about people raving about her dessert. I could have honestly not been paying any attention to it though, we all know how daughters are.

So, here it is! I hope you enjoy how it looks, how it’s made, and how awesome it is that I’ll actually have a family recipe on this blog. Even if that family recipe is ridiculously easy and not amazing like an Italian super secret pasta sauce that has been passed down for three generations. Oh well, this still counts!IMG_0614

Dark Chocolate Peppermint Bark

Okay – this recipe was insanely fun to make, and I guessed on most of it.¬†Basing my end result off of Martha Stewart’s ‘Basic Bark’ recipe. I am a complete idiot, having not realized there were links on that page to the exact recipes of items such as, peppermint bark and toasted-coconut bark. This being said, I had nothing to base my measurements off of except pure luck. Getting to the recipe I ‘used,’ there is grocery store Aldi that is close to my house, this is where I got the chocolate that I used in the bark.


I used 13 squares of this chocolate, about 12 oz of it. The most important thing to add in here is that I started with only using 9 oz and it didn’t seem to be enough, so I melted some more chocolate to add in. Seriousy guys, I guessed on this recipe immensely. ¬†In good news though, when melting the chocolate, I did not burn my house down, for some reason there is a huge stigma that melting chocolate is incredibly difficult and it always burns to the sides of the pans you use – nope. First try and everything went smoothly!
