Summer means a few things in our home. Strawberries (sooooooo many strawberries) and friends! We have a lot of visitors throughout the year, but come summertime it starts to feel like a camp for wayward and rowdy friends. Which, let's be honest - I wouldn't have it any other way! The pool and trampoline are in constant use and everyone's hungry all the time. I love to cook for company, but sometimes it gets overwhelming and that's when we fall back on the buffet line.
Hot dogs, fruit, snacks, and of course dessert! We like to put it all out on a big folding table and let folks dig in as they see fit. This Salted Caramel and Strawberry Parfait recipe is a product of a 'Make Your Own Parfait' buffet! The dish mixes the tanginess of strawberries, with the sweetness of whipped cream, a crunch of cookie in the middle, and just the perfect hint of salt when topped with salted caramel sauce.
We put out all varieties of fruit and toppings for the parfait buffet, but I'm strongly encouraging you to try this combination. It's maybe my favorite dessert these days. Probably, even. I love that it's fresh and light tasting. Perfect for a hot summer afternoon. My 8 year old rolled his eyes into the back of his head in sheer bliss the first time he tried it!
I won't stop you from using chocolate sauce in place of the salted caramel sauce - I mean, chocolate and strawberries, duh. But promise me you'll at least try the caramel combination? Please? Or puhhhh-lease, as my 2 year old would say.
This Parfait Buffet (I really love saying that - isn't it fun?!) featured Smucker's Simple Delight Salted Caramel and Hot Fudge toppings, Reddi-wip whipped cream, a variety of Pepperidge Farm cookies, and diced fruit (yay, strawberries!). Pretty much all ingredients you can't go wrong with. Amiright? (P.S. Yes, I'm right).
