This Strawberry jelly parfait is layers of delicious strawberry jelly and cream. It is an easy dessert to make with just 3 ingredients and is perfect for children.
It was half term last week which means the children are home. All I have heard is Mummy I am hungry. Mummy can I have a drink, mummy what’s for dinner? To add to that their new favourite meal is crepes. I have lost count of the amount of crepes made over the last 3 days. They can’t seem to get enough of crepes. Speaking of crepes, check out a video on how to make crepes from scratch, here.
As a treat for Valentine’s Day, I made Strawberry Jelly Parfaits. Usually I would make a cake or some sort of baked treat, but there is no energy left in me. These strawberry jelly parfaits are really easy to make and contains only three ingredients: strawberry jelly, water and whipped cream. My little ones loved it.
Dependent on when you want serve this parfait, give yourself at least 5 hours to allow the jelly to set.
To start make the bottom layer which is simply powdered strawberry jelly and hot water. Make the jelly according to the instructions on the packet. Divide between your serving dishes and refrigerate until set.
For the top layer, prepare the jelly and refrigerate until cool. Fold in whipped cream. and pour over the bottom layer. Place back in the fridge until set.
Top the jelly parfaits with whipped cream and serve with fresh strawberries.
These are perfect for birthday parties or gathering. Serve them in glasses to show off the layers.
