Party Panache, Snow Capped White Russian Cookie Parfaits

To celebrate the Olympic winter games wind down, I made some Snow Capped White Russian Cookie Parfaits

This dessert looks all fancy schmancy but shhhhhhhhh, it only takes mere minutes to make

I bought this little pack of White Russian cocktails when the Olympics began thinking they would be fun to sip on during the games and decided to try one in a dessert with Tate’s*  chocolate chip cookies and whipped cream.  You don’t have to use liqueur though, you can use vanilla extract or any flavor that suits you

Tate’s* cookies taste homemade, and they are thin and crispy.  This type of cookie holds up well in this ice box parfait.

I used individual dessert cups from Libby, they are a great for a non guilty serving size and an easy way to serve dessert for a party, not to mention grabbing out of the fridge!  For another fun dessert in these dishes, Sand Dollar Dessert, click here

Crumble one cookie in the bottom of each dish and top with a few generous dollops of whipped cream and spread into an even layer with the back of a spoon

Top with additional cookie crumbles, a dollop of “snow” and a few white chocolate chips

Grate some dark chocolate with a zester and sprinkle it on top

Party ready!

These can be adapted for any occasion, tinting the whipped cream green and adding Baileys Irish Cream instead of the Kahula and these little parfaits are ready for St. Patrick’s Day

I used Andes chopped mint baking chips.  It was convenient, but not as pretty if you chopped them yourself~ you know, kinda like cheese, freshly grated is always better~

Don’t forget the mint!

Use any flavor you want for the whipped cream and any variety of cookie, endless possibilities!

Here’s the “recipe” which is really more of a guideline to use for your own creative concoction!

  6. So cute and fairly simple! They look like they taste great too. Not too many Russian desserts I can think of, so this is a Gold Medal winner!

    • Oh my gosh Jessica, I didn’t read this post [obviously] Thanks so much for telling me~ it is a little scary, just putting yourself right out there, but being an artist I’m pretty used to that. When I hear who is locally reading my blog, like my husbands patients who talk about it in his office, I get a little nervous!! But I’m pretty much an open book and I have a feeling you are too 🙂 so I know you are relieved and feeling much better about it! Dewars is really Dewars right? 🙂
