Servings: 1


2 slices Sara Lee® All-Butter Pound Cake, diced
1/2 cup diced ripe strawberries
2/3 cup chocolate filling (recipe below)
Chocolate filling (makes 3 cups!!!!)
8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
~ 1 tablespoon whole milk or heavy cream


Chocolate filling

In a mixing bowl add the cream cheese and the butter.

With the paddle attachment on, beat on low speed until creamy.

Gently, beat in the powder sugar, about 1/2 cup at a time mixing it in before adding more.

Once all the sugar is added, beat in the cocoa powder as well.

Stir in the salt, vanilla extract and a few drops of milk to reach your desired consistency. I prefer a lighter fluffier filling and add a generous tablespoon of heavy cream.

Beat until everything in mixed in.

Assemble the parfait.

Pipe a little chocolate filling on the bottom of a 15oz glass.

Top with half of the diced pound cake.

Pipe another layer of chocolate filling.

Arrange the strawberries on top of the chocolate filling.

Top with the remaining diced cake and finish with a little more chocolate filling.

Decorate with a fresh strawberry and chocolate sprinkles, if desired.
