You Should Invite Me To Dinner
Chocolate Caramel Frozen Parfaits
These were so so very good this weekend! I brought them to Kristin and Michael's house for dessert on Saturday night.They turned out exactly like the picture and tasted like frozen chocolate mousse.
I even made the homemade chocolate sauce and real whipped cream as an accompaniment.
However, foodie over zealousness prevails in this recipe as well. There are not that many ingredients in the recipe, and yet.... and yet, it uses so many bowls....At one point it says "melt x in a small saucepan" and then it goes on to say, "In another small saucepan, heat up x" What? How many small saucepans do they think I have. The answer, is that I have 1!! Just like I have only 1 bowl to my kitchenaid stand mixer yet the recipe has you mix up the custard for 10 min and then "in another bowl" beat the whipped cream...Those extra bowls are like $40, I don't think so.....
Overall, except for all of the dishwashing, it was a pretty easy and impressive dessert.
