An indulgent ode to the nostalgia and love of childhood treats!

Peanut butter and jelly; it is hard to improve such a classic combo! But we think chocolate adds a delicious twist on this childhood favorite. This silky and creamy parfait is the perfect dessert to wrap up a Valentine's Day dinner.

PB&J Chocolate Parfaits


For the Chocolate Cream

For the Peanut Butter Cream

  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter

For the Raspberry Layer

  • ¼ cup raspberry jelly

For the Topping

Instructions (serves 3):

  1. Make the Chocolate Cream: Place finely chopped chocolate in a metal bowl. Heat cream in a small saucepan until it bubbles around edges. Pour cream over chocolate, let stand 5 minutes; stir until smooth. Refrigerate until chilled, about 10 minutes. Using an electric mixer or a whisk, whip the chocolate until smooth and fluffy.
  2. Make the Peanut-Butter Cream: In a medium bowl, whip cream to stiff peaks. Whisk in sugar and salt. Then fold whipped cream into peanut butter.
  3. To assemble: Pour a little bit of the Raspberry Jelly on the sides of the parfait glasses. Then divide peanut butter cream equally among the glasses and then top each with chocolate cream.
  4. Top each glass with extra chocolate crumbles, peanuts, and a PB&J Cup. Cover with plastic wrap. Chill until ready to serve.
