Red White and Blue Parfait

It was my turn to bring snacks to our Sunday School Class so I whipped up these individual parfaits. I found the cute little disposable spoons at The Dollar Tree.  I got this recipe from one of my favorite moms at MOPs. And while it sounds like a patriotic dessert it is delicious for any occasion.

Here is the recipe...

Topping....2 cups crushed pretzels  1/2 c butter 1/2c sugar. Melt the butter and sugar over low heat on the top of the stove.  While this is melting...prepare a 13 by 9 pan with parchment paper or foil. ( Do not use a cookie sheet as this burns easily.) When butter sugar mixture is melted, place pretzels in prepared pan and pour sugar/butter mixture over the top. Bake at 400 degrees for 7 minutes. When it is done, allow to cool in pan, then break apart. Store in air tight container.

Parfait....8 oz cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, 12 oz Kool Whip...mix together. ( I might use powdered sugar next time!) Add 3 cups of fresh sliced strawberries and 1 cup of blueberries. Stir to mix and store in fridge over night.

To assemble spoon the parfait into a small dish and top with pretzel topping.

This pretzel topping would be good on its own on top of ice cream or yogurt. Or you can do like my husband and eat it straight out of the container. Hey leave some for my parfait Buddy!:)

I am thinking of making this a tropical parfait next time. I might do pineapple and mandarin oranges with a bit of flaked coconut added to the pretzel topping. I think that sounds yummy.

I am off to have coffee with my friend, Maggie, so posting my blog this evening. Thanks for all the sweet comments on my cross stitch finishes!! You are the best!
