Individual Chocolate Cake Parfaits

Individual chocolate cake parfaits are a fast and easy dessert.  I used left-over chocolate cake, from my chocolate cake recipe.  I made my chocolate cake and then cut out individual little cakes.  I had some pieces left over and decided to make those into parfaits.  Using fresh homemade whipped cream and chocolate syrup to drizzle over the layers.  

When you have left-over cake, turn it into a delicious parfait.  It’s just a fun and different way to finish off that cake sitting on the counter.  Makes a great treat for Halloween.  Get out those cute Halloween sprinkles and generously sprinkle them on top.

  These individual chocolate cake parfaits would make a nice “date night” dessert.  You wouldn’t have to share.

You could make them into mini parfaits, for the next party or get together.  Mini parfaits would make an adorable set up on the dessert table.  Although, I may have to come back for a second one.   But… who’s counting, right?  Grab a spoon and get ready to dig in!

I’m really excited for October!  That means my favorite show “The Walking Dead” is going to start back up.  My brother, Mike, introduced me to the show in 2010.  (Hi, Mike!)  It’s about a sheriff, who wakes from a coma and finds out that the city has been over run by flesh-eating zombies.  He seeks his family and other survivors.   The show is based off the comic book and has been a top rated show.  It’s still going strong and I can’t wait!  If you can catch a “Walking Dead” marathon, you should watch it.  You have to start from the beginning to learn about the characters.  I would love to just hang out on the couch and watch all the season marathons.  But, I have a 5 year old and he can’t watch that show.  

One year for Halloween, I was able to dress up my family into zombie hunters.  I did the make-up on my husband, son and myself.  We had a lot of people comment on our costumes.  Here are some pictures to get you in the Halloween spirit.  



Ha ha!  That’s great! 

Ok, back to the recipe for individual chocolate cake parfaits.
