|These are a perfect dessert for any quick craving of a mock style Tiramisu, of course |
I had these Italian mason jars that made them taste even better~!!! It also won a contest and I was on TV on the Balancing Act Watch the show by clicking here
Although you can use all premade and store purchased baked goods and cooked ingredients, I have used homemade fillings and homemade scratch brownies. For these recipes used in this recipe, click at the bottom for those links.
1 baked dark fudge brownie recipe or store bought brownies cut up in small chunks
1 Tiramisu filling, recipe ( cheesecake filling can be also purchased in the dairy case in a premade container by Kraft at your local supermarket, or another suggestion is to make Jello instant cheesecake pudding and pie filling found on the grocery shelf by other pudding mixes)
1 jar hot fudge
For the Adult version add:
1 or 2 tablespoons Kahlua or (more if you like) in 1/4 coffee brewed leftover if you have it sprinkle this on the brownie layer
For the Kids version:
Sprinkle the brownie layer with a few teaspoons of chocolate syrup, omit the coffee and alcohol.
Fresh Strawberries dip each one in Hot warmed fudge
Red colored sugar optional
Maraschino cherry juice, strawberry syrup or red food coloring to color the cheese cake mixture
Mason jars for parfait (shown in photo's) or use any parfait glass
In a mason jar or other decorative glass, crumble brownies on the bottom in an even layer. Top with a few tablespoons or more to your liking of Kahlua/coffee mixture. Spread a few tablespoons of cheesecake filling over the top (Tip: for even easier method, put cheesecake filling in a ziplock bag and snip the corner off to fill, squeeze on top of brownies) then add the whipped cream. Repeat, brownie, Kahlua, cheesecake filling and whipped cream until you get to the top ending with whipped cream.
Place a strawberry that has been dipped in warm chocolate hot fudge and add on the mound of whipped cream parfait. Sprinkle the top with any coordinating colored sugar this one is with red colored sugar... you can tint this any color you want for any Holiday or make a big batch using a very large one bowl glass trifle dish!
