National parfait day is November 25. And in honor of that I made a delicious parfait as a snack the afternoon. It hit the spot! Filling, but not heavy. And it satisfied an afternoon sweet tooth, but wasn’t loaded with high fructose corn syrup.  As I was making it I thought, “hmmm, I should really make this as a dessert more often.” It was just so good!  Serves 2

I’m sure everyone gets those cravings for something sweet after having dinner. I know I do and I’ve taken advantage of a quick treat I can whip up in a cup more than once.   I found many cakes, cookies and breakfast treats that you can try. Personally, I can’t wait to try a blueberry muffin or a coffee cake on Monday morning. And I am so digging into a Snickerdoodle cake next date night.
