This parfait glass is filled with freshly whipped cream, strawberry puree, and little bites of 3 Musketeers candy bars. For a special dessert or chocolate treat, give this recipe a try!
- Prep: 35 mins
Use a sharp knife to cut 3 Musketeers Bites in half (optional)
Hull and dice strawberries and place into a large bowl. Stir in sugar, then cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
Place strawberries and their juice in bowl of a food processor or blender and process until pureed. Taste for sweetness. If you want them sweeter, stir in 1 Tablespoon sugar, repeating if necessary, until desired sweetness is achieved. Makes approximately 1 1/4 cups of puree. Chill until ready to assemble the dessert.
Place whipping cream into a chilled stainless steel mixing bowl. Use a hand or stand mixer and whip cream until soft peaks form (about 1 minute). Sprinkle sugar into the bowl and continue mixing for 1-2 more minutes, until medium peaks have formed and mixture is light and fluffy.
Use a silicone spatula or spoon to gently fold 1/2 cup of puree into the whipped cream. Don't over mix or you won't see those nice specks of strawberry in the finished product!
To assemble the desserts, place 3 Tablespoons of puree into the bottom of each parfait glass. (This recipe will give you enough for 2 parfaits. Add a layer of whipped cream mixture, followed by a layer of the Bites candy. Repeat layers of whipped cream mixture and candy until the glass is full. Finish with a Tablespoon of puree on top.
If desired, garnish with graham cracker sticks and more candy Bites.
