Peanut Butter Chocolate Parfait

May 1st is National Chocolate Parfait Day

Parfait (/pɑːrˈfeɪ/, also UK: /ˈpɑːrfeɪ/, French: [paʁfɛ]; meaning "perfect") describes two types of dessert. In France, where the dish originated, parfait is made by boiling cream, egg, sugar and syrup to create a custard-like puree. The American version includes more ingredients like granola, nuts, yogurt and liqueurs made in combination with a topping of fruits or whipped cream that are layered and served. The oldest known recipe dates back to 1892.

Either type is typically served in tall glassware together with a long spoon known as parfait spoon. The classical parfait glass is stemware, with a short stem and a tall slender bowl, often tapered towards the bottom, also used for serving milkshakes.
