Parfait with sour cream and dark and white chocolate

I have loved parfait since I was a child. It seemed like a super exquisite dessert to me then, especially after I found out that it comes from French and is spelled PARFAIT (something like Peugeot;) )…

I remember once with my grandmother Anastasia, after whom I was named, we bought different types of sweets, including a pink strawberry parfait, from a pastry shop at the entrance to South Park on Nishava Street in Sofia (after it was a bank, now it’s a pastry shop again). So the other day, after we tried the parfait, Grandma, as a high self-respecting chef cook, especially in the preparation of typical Bulgarian banitsa (cheese pie with phyllo crusts), said, “Can’t I do that?” And she did, and it was great! And then parfait was followed by another, and after that another and so on, more and more tastier and interesting. At one point we didn’t want to eat parfait anymore, but the culinary perfectionism didn’t want to stop 🙂 These are my memories with parfait.

And this is mine – PARFAIT WITH SOUR CREAM AND TWO KINDS OF CHOCOLATE. It was ordered by the members of the family. A little experiment in the kitchen, combining several products and here it is. With chocolate, which we love very much. And the combination with sour cream balances the sweetness of the whole cake and the result is very satisfying. I did it for no reason, but you can prepare it for the upcoming Valentine’s Day to make your loved ones happy. One tip though – make it at least 1-2 days in advance to make the cake even tastier for the holiday!

And here is the recipe:
