Simply phenomenal. You can set these up the day before you need them, and they will look and taste fantastic. They do require some set up time, otherwise they will be very soft and the texture won’t be what it should be. The upside of course, if they can be made in advance for a no muss dessert the day of a gathering (this Thanksgiving or Christmas!)
Use parfait glasses or mugs to show this dessert to its best advantage!
