Chocolate-Caramel Mousse Parfaits

Our home economist came up this tempting dessert that only requires three ingredients. The contrasting layers look lovely in tall, clear glasses.

    Prep: 20 min. + chilling
  • Makes
    6 servings


  • 4 cups heavy whipping cream, divided
  • 5 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
