I thought since I took Monday off that I’d come back today with something AMAZING! This is one of the easiest, but BEST desserts we’ve had! I made these for a friends birthday back in April, and I’ve been dyiiiing to share them with you, SO good. I keep getting asked about them, and reminded about how flipping amazing they are. I mean, it’s pretty impossible to go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate together, then throw in some cookies and whipped cream, and you’ve got dessert heaven in a jar.
Before I continue blabbering on about these beauties, I want to tell you what an exciting time this is for us! I had my bridal shower this past weekend, more to come on that later, but it was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! I was completely blown away and amazed at what an incredible job my mom and bridesmaids did. Oh I can’t wait to show you! Also this past weekend, my hubs graduated, but more importantly commissioned as an officer into the army. (Officially going to be an army wife in 5 weeks.) I am so proud of him, he worked so hard, and deserves it so much. He is the sole reason I am able to stay home with our beautiful boys everyday, and I could never say thank you to him enough. I feel so blessed. We head off to Missouri in September and then to Washington state in February, I can’t wait to live out on the west coast, I’ve always wanted too, and it will all definitely be an adventure!
There is so much to celebrate in these next five weeks up until my wedding, and so much going on! I hope to share as much of it with you as possible and hope you enjoy following along 🙂
Now! Back to these Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Parfaits! Make them! They’re soooo incredibly quick and easy, and they seriously and honestly taste like an expensive decadent dessert! I know it sounds so simple, and it is, but the taste and texture, is out.of.this.world. Oh the cookies just MAKE these! I had homemade soft peanut butter chocolate chip cookies on hand that I crumbled up in these, but you could use any peanut butter cookie! I used instant chocolate pudding, but you could totally make your own if you’re fancy like that, I bet it would be amazing!
These little parfait’s are perfect for this time of year! You don’t have to turn on your oven, you can make them ahead of time and pull them out for your BBQ or party when you need them, and they’re already pre-portioned! I tried them both right after I made them, and then a few hours later. I wasn’t sure if I would like it after sitting in my fridge for awhile, (I thought the cookies would get super soggy) but oh my goodness, they were even better after a little while of rest! We inhaled these, and then went back for more! I’m constantly getting requests for them. Simple & Fabulous! My kind of Summer dessert! Enjoy!
