Chocolate Vanilla Whip Parfaits



  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 10 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee (crystals)
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 4 teaspoons powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla


  1. In a medium sized saucepan, place the cornstarch, sugar, and salt.
  2. Insert the whisk into whisk adapter and adapter into the motor body of the KitchenAid® Pro Line® Cordless Hand Blender. With the blender on speed 1, carefully whisk the milk and heavy cream into the sugar mixture. *To avoid much splashing, try to keep the whisk away from the edges of the pan. Cook for 7-8 minutes until large bubbles are forming on the surface of the liquid and it is beginning to slightly thicken, whisking on speed 1 occasionally.
  3. Add in the chocolate chips and continue whisking on speed 1 until melted. Remove from heat.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together vanilla and coffee crystals until coffee is dissolved. Add into the chocolate mixture and stir to incorporate.
  5. Place a piece of plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the pudding and chill overnight to thicken.
  6. Place ingredients in blending pitcher and whisk at speed 4 for 1-2 minutes or until thick. Use immediately or chill for up to 1 day.
  7. Layer pudding and vanilla whip into champagne or parfait glasses, 2 tablespoons of pudding and 1 tablespoon vanilla whip at a time until filled to the top. Garnish with mint leaves and raspberries.
  8. Tip: Mix pudding and vanilla whip together to create a mousse consistency and serve chilled with crushed graham crackers for a s’mores style treat.
