Earth Day Parfaits

 

I like to call these Earth Day parfaits the grownup version of dirt pudding. It has a chocolate cookie crust, pistachio cheesecake filling, and tasty decorations like white chocolate shavings, sprinkles, chocolate-covered strawberries, and gummy worms.


It's a simple, no-bake recipe, which of course I'm a big fan of. However, I want to point out the importance of following the directions with the heavy whipping cream. If you try to incorporate it without first whipping it, your cheesecake filling will be the consistency of toothpaste, which is especially gross in this recipe since the mixture is already green. 


But when you whip the heavy cream, you incorporate air into the mixture, and it will ultimately become whipped cream. That makes our result light and creamy. You could, of course, substitute store-bought whipped topping, but I guarantee it won't taste nearly as good. 


The decorations can be as elaborate or as simple as you want. I dyed white chocolate green and broke it up into little pieces for grass in the examples pictured in this post. I also dipped strawberries into orange candy melts so they looked like carrots. But if you want to do the bare minimum, you can just top your pistachio cheesecake filling with gummy worms.

  3. I was late on paying my furniture bill 3 months in a row and now my credit score dropped from 745 to 368 and that was devastating. I needed someone to help me improve my score to get it back to the regular limit. Thank you 'Remoterepair @ clerk . Com' for proving to be a good credit agent and helping me clear up the debts thereby improving my credit scores.

  4. On a clear score, my credit was less than 463, and I was slightly skeptical but decided to give this an opportunity. R E M O T E R E P A I R a t C L E R K d o t C O M has done more than fix my credit. He has helped me better my knowledge of credit opportunities. I will refer him to any of my friends or family with any bit of credit discrepancies. I am now ready to continue improving my score and not worry about getting approved for the things I want and need in life
