Reviews forCherry Chocolate Parfaits
"This was just OK. It sounded better than what it was. It was also too expensive and too time consuming to make again based on the result. The picture is not accurate either."
"I was disappointed. It was no big deal. Sounded better than it actually was."
"I was very happy with it always looking for a recipe with low fats & sugars."
"I was excited to try this recipe but found it to be just o.k. My family found it to be not very flavorful, and the bottom not very sweet. A lot of work for a mediocre dessert."
"OH MY GOSH IT LOOKS SO GOOD!"
