Peppermint Parfait

True story: this dessert was born out of a craving during my period. I wanted something minty, I wanted ice cream, I wanted chocolate. And I wanted it smooshed all together. And with that, the peppermint parfait was born. 

Ingredients (makes as many parfaits as your heart desires):

  • Ice cream of your choice (I was yearning for vanilla bean)
  • Chocolate fudge brownies cut into little chunks (store-bought is more than okay)
  • Peppermint sticks
  • Whipped cream


  1. Use a mallet or hammer to break up the peppermint sticks into little pieces. It's probably best to put them in a plastic bag first...a lesson I learned after.
  2. Layer ice cream, brownie chunks, peppermint and repeat.
  3. Top with whipped cream and garnish with a peppermint stick.
