NATIONAL CHOCOLATE PARFAIT DAY
May 1 recognizes the food holiday National Chocolate Parfait Day.
Enjoying a delicious chocolate parfait would be a perfect way to end your day. Parfait literally means “perfect” in French! There are a couple of ways to make parfaits. The traditional French-style uses sugar syrup, eggs and cream. The American style layers parfait cream, ice cream and flavored gelatin in a tall, clear glass topped with whipped cream, fruit and liqueurs. The parfait has recently taken a wholesome turn using yogurt layered with nuts and fresh fruits, instead of ice cream and sugary syrups.

We were unable to find the creator of National Chocolate Parfait Day. Our research did find this scrumptious dessert dates back to 1894 and seems to have originated in France.
