This recipe is filled with refreshing strawberries, chocolate brownies, strawberry syrup, and cream cheese filling. It’s absolutely delicious and it is always a huge hit when you want to serve something elegant and sophisticated in front of the guests.
Homemade parfaits are just easy recipes to be put together and to serve something fast but incredibly delicious at the same time. You can use store-bought brownies or making your own from scratch, but the easiest part of the recipe is whipping up the cream together.
The recipe goes well with leftover brownies, and yes here the cheating is acceptable because when you soak the leftover brownies in the strawberry syrup, you will defiantly get something that is rich and moist, perfect for recipes like this.
The cutest part is serving. I really like when I serve parfaits in medium tall glasses and bring some great presentation by garnishing it with a mint leaf.
Enjoy this simple but delicious and easy to make dessert!
