Spiked Nutella Parfaits are topped with a beautiful whipped cream and Nutella mousse. Perfectly sinful.
I think this holds true for both the men and the women in the room. Everyone loves chocolate, and when it comes down to it, no matter if it’s a first date or your millionth, just skip everything else about the day and go to dessert.
We haven’t gone out to eat on Valentine’s Day in years. It’s a forced holiday and no restaurant is ever at its peak on a night like that.
The steak ends up overcooked, the wine is too expensive, and frankly dessert is always a disappointment. So this year, I suggest a night in like my husband and I do, making sure to include a dessert that seems fancy, but really isn’t.
Parfaits really are the perfect answer to the fancy-but-not-really dessert. They can be made ahead of time and if it’s a little sloppy, that’s okay.
I’m pretty sure it’s going to be gobbled up so quickly your date won’t notice.
Not to mention it’s life’s answer to crumbled and broken cake pieces. Now while this parfait includes making the cake from scratch, I won’t judge if you want to use a cake mix.
The choice is yours, but it does come together in a jiffy either way!
This particular parfait is a very chocolatey one, with extremely easy spiked nutella mousse, whipped cream and toasted hazelnuts. The best part about this parfait is that it’s easily made ahead of time, so when date night arrives, the only thing you have to worry about is what movie to watch on Netflix.
Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you spend your day surrounded by your loved ones!
