Peppermint Brownie Parfaits are layers of brownie, peppermint white chocolate pudding, and fresh whipped cream. A rich, creamy, melt-in-your-mouth dessert!
These Peppermint Brownie Parfaits are so easy to make and so yummy! You can’t beat the combination of chocolate and peppermint. This dessert took me less than 15 minutes to make up and it tastes like something much more fancy! Make sure that you don’t eat the pudding and peppermint mixture by itself…it will taste VERY peppermint-y, but once it is mixed in with all the other flavors it is perfect! For the brownies you can use any recipe you like. I like the more fudge-y brownie mixes, but you can use any recipe. (You could even get store-bought brownies or brownie bites if you are pressed for time.) Make sure that you don’t over-whip the whipped cream…it will get really runny. Mix it just until the stiff peaks form. You could also make this in a large trifle bowl instead of individual parfait glasses, if you are feeding a large crowd. You can also use crushed up candy cane pieces instead of the round peppermints. If you are looking for other parfait and trifle recipes, try our Pumpkin Cheesecake Trifle or our Triple Chocolate Trifle.
