“Mocha is one of my favorite flavors, so when I found this recipe years ago, I knew I’d use it often, says Janice Mitchell of Aurora, Colorado, “Because I make this dessert a lot, I keep extra marshmallows in my freezer.”
"I created this recipe to showcase one of my favorite garden plants - rhubarb," says Diane Halferty of Corpus Christi, Texas. "My four children are grown, but I enjoy fixing this colorful dessert for my grandchildren."
"This dish is not only easy but very elegant," relates Renee Zimmer of Gig Harbor, Washington. "I got the recipe from a church cooking class and now fix it often, with rave reviews. You can serve it in bowls, but I always get more oohs and aahs when I put it in lovely goblets."
"When I asked drop-in company to stay for dinner, I happened to have all the ingredients on hand to create this elegant layered berry treat," recalls Andree Garrett Of Plymouth, Michigan. "Everyone thought this low-sugar dessert was yummy and refreshing.
"We have peach trees and blueberry bushes, so combining those fresh fruits with a thick old-fashioned custard sauce is an extraordinary summer treat," relates field editor Suzanne McKinley, Lyons, Georgia
Here’s a parfait that’s perfect for a garden or patio party. Tea adds a wonderfully unexpected flavor to gelatin. And kids will have fun finding the cherry at the bottom.Teena Petrus, Johnstown, Pennsylvania
EVERY TIME I serve this simple but elegant dessert to guests, I have to give them the recipe, too.
I found this dessert recipe in the early '50s and since then, it has earned a place in my tried-and-true file.
I had to make adjustments to prepare it for two people, but it can be easily increased to serve any number.
