Reviews forStrawberry Mousse Parfaits
"This was light and delicious. My mom always asks me to make her one, especially on a hot day."
"Lovely dessert although there appears to be a typo in the recipe for the amount of strawberry mixture to be set aside for layering. If one needs 4 tsp (4x 5ml = 20ml) for 12 parfaits (12 x 20ml = 240ml), then setting aside only 1/2 cup (125ml)will not do! Otherwise, it was a well-received dessert with my dinner guests and has a nice "summery feel"!"
