Black Forest Parfaits

Cook Time



  • Basic Dark Chocolate Cake, cut into cubes
  • 3-4 tablespoons of Cherry Pie Filling per parfait

Homemade Whipped Cream

  • 1 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • 2 Tablespoons powdered sugar (I used Imperial Powdered Sugar)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


Homemade Whipped Cream:

  • Pour the heavy whipping cream into a large bowl; add the vanilla extract and powdered sugar.
  • Mix on low for about 30 seconds until you start to see some foam. Turn it up a little and run it about 30 seconds to a minute, gradually going up in speed until you see stiff peaks form. Don't over whip!
  • Use immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.

Assembling the Parfaits:

  • Place the cubes of chocolate cake into the bottom and sides of a glass serving bowl. 
  • Spoon the cherry pie filling on top making sure to get down into the chocolate cake too.
  • Top with a scoop of homemade whipped cream.
  • Garnish with cocoa powder, nuts and a cherry.
