Hi, it’s Ginnie from Hello Little Home, and I’m excited to be back with a delicious summer recipe!

I love strawberries year round, but there’s nothing quite like the perfect summer berry!  My mom took my sister and I strawberry picking every summer. I relished sitting in the sun, getting my hands dirty, and trying to find the sweetest berries. I’m pretty sure that I ate more than I took home!

Now that I’m living in New York, I don’t have a local berry patch to visit. That hasn’t stopped me from trying to find the best strawberries though!

Strawberries are delicious on their own, of course, but I also like pairing them with chocolate for a sinful dessert. This Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Parfait is a favorite summer treat.

For this dessert, I’ve layered the berries with rich chocolate mousse and crumbled chocolate cookies. It’s so good, and I guarantee you won’t be able to stop at one bite!

Each parfait is generously sized. If you are serving a crowd, try serving the parfaits in smaller glasses to get more servings out of the recipe. Champagne coupes would be super pretty!
