May 1st is National Chocolate Parfait Day
you're looking for something to do today then get ready for some
perfection because it's National Chocolate Parfait Day! I see
already have your spoon... Let's get right into celebrating
National Chocolate Parfait Day!
WHY IS THIS A
Today is a holiday because this stuff so dang good that
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
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.
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?
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
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
even blindfold each other as you sample the parfait. That way
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!
