If you're looking for something to do today then get ready for some perfection because it's National Chocolate Parfait Day!  I see you already have your spoon...  Let's get right into celebrating National Chocolate Parfait Day!

WHY IS THIS A HOLIDAY?  

Today is a holiday because this stuff so dang good that people need an excuse to eat it all day. They want a day where people can't tell them to stop eating desserts, because all they're doing is celebrating. Parfait is so good that is shows through its name, which mean "perfect" in French. And it is a perfect treat, if you know how to make it.  There are a lot of different parfait variations but the original is a kind of frozen dessert that got its start back in 1894. It's made of sugary syrup, eggs and cream which is a quite perfect blend of flavors. But some people like to layer it with other things to give it a more presentable look as well as a melting pot of flavors.

You'll see people layer it with things like ice cream, pudding, flavored gelatin and then top it with whipped cream or a dusting of cocoa powder. And some people just use layers of yogurt, nuts and berries; cutting out the parfait cream completely. But you must serve it in a clear glass if you want the layers to have their full effect. Then you can dig down deep with your spoon and get a little bit of each flavor as you scoop it into your mouth. But remember, today is all about the chocolate parfait!  Hungry yet?

HOW TO CELEBRATE 

So how can you celebrate today?  Well, you can head over to your favorite restaurant and scan their menu for the beloved chocolate parfait. If you find it then you're in luck because you don't have to do any work! Just enjoy your meal and get ready for the perfection that is chocolate parfait. That's always an ideal situation for an easy celebration.  But maybe you want to make some yourself. It's really not that hard to do and there are a ton of different recipes online that will help you along the way. You can go with the traditional parfait that's frozen or you can mix it up with a variety of layers.

In fact, that can be the best part of today's celebration; coming up with different things to layer your parfait with. You'll of course start with chocolate parfait but you can also pop in layers of fruit, nuts, pudding, yogurt, ice cream or anything else you can think of. Have a little competition by taking turns in the kitchen to see who can come up with the best layered treat. I REALLY recommend you try a peanut butter, coconut cream ;).  You could even blindfold each other as you sample the parfait.  That way you don't know what's coming and you can try to guess what you're really tasting.  You may even end up saying that your parfait was the worst ;).  Enjoy your perfect day!
