Double Chocolate Mousse Parfaits

This post is being sponsored by The Coca-Cola Company. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

The holidays are coming, and so are all the family dinners, cocktail parties, and holiday shindigs. I love this time of year and all the opportunities to entertain and mingle with our friends and family. And, let’s be honest who can resist all the yummy treats that start to show up this time of year! Speaking of treats, these delicious double chocolate mousse parfaits definitely need to be a part of your holiday entertaining “must-have” recipes!

I personally love individual portioned desserts, like these mini parfaits. They are easy for guest to grab and mingle and they look pretty too! While these little treats may be small in size they are big in flavor. In fact, I think you will be pleasantly surprised to see what special ingredient makes these parfaits irresistible. I’m actually sipping on an ice cold one right now while I type…that’s right, it’s Diet CokeⓇ! The fizzy beverage we all love makes the chocolate cake extremely moist and by far one of the easiest cakes you’ll ever make. So let’s get to it, shall we.

When it comes to entertaining I love anything that is quick and easy. It’s even better when I can whip something up with things I already have on hand. This dessert definitely checks off all the boxes. One thing that you can always find in my house, especially during the holidays is Coca-ColaⓇ products. Keeping the fridge stocked with Coca-ColaⓇ is essential to hosting holiday parties, and this delicious dessert is just another example of why!

I often hear from people that entertaining, especially during the busy holiday season, stresses them out. I think one of the reasons people feel so stressed is because they try to focus too much on the food, decorations and party prep instead of the reason you are entertaining to start with, spending time with people you love. While I definitely want to impress my guest and serve delicious food, it’s more important to me that I actually get to spend time chatting and laughing with our friends. Which is why I am a huge fan of easy recipes like these double chocolate mousse parfaits! I’m here to assure you that you can entertain in style this holiday season, let’s start with the perfect party dessert, get the recipe below

Mistletoe Embroidery Hoop Art

I'm hosting our monthly supper club next week and decided on a festive Margaritas and Mistletoe themed celebration.  I've been busy planning and creating decorations, but realized one important thing was missing...mistletoe.  It turns out you can't actually buy real mistletoe in my area because it is a parasitic plant that can be harmful to trees.  So, I did what any creative hostess would do in a pinch, and made my own Mistletoe Embroidery Hoop Art to add to our holiday decor and … [Continue reading...]
