It was probably that I was in a rush to make these parfaits that led to them being just passable.
My mousse didn’t really set up. It tasted fine, but wasn’t pretty. I picked up some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies at the local bakery, because I couldn’t find brownies and I didn’t have time to make them. Chocolate sauce? Nope – I used the Baked rum sauce that I keep stashed in the refrigerator (I think that was a good move, actually).
We decided the mousse I had leftover (I didn’t make all of the parfaits) would be great in a decadent smoothie. Overall the parfaits aren’t bad… everything tastes good on its own and theoretically everything should be great together. I blame my too-liquid mousse for creating textural issues.
