Brownie S'mores Parfait

As I've mentioned here before, I spent my summers in Maine when I was young.  The best place for a cool treat was the local Dairy Queen, where I always ordered the Peanut Buster Parfait. Vanilla ice cream, hot fudge sauce and peanuts layered was pure bliss!

I made brownies the other night, and had the idea of making a s'mores parfait - let me tell you, this dessert is CRAZY good!!!

Here's how to make it:


Brownies (made from scratch, made from a mix, or bought at a store - it doesn't matter)
Marshmallow Fluff or Marshmallow Creme*
Graham crackers

*Note for my international readers: if you can get marshmallows, but not Marshmallow Fluff or Creme, you can melt marshmallows in a pan with a little butter.


Crush the graham crackers.  I did this with the back of a wooden spoon, but you can do it however you want...get those aggressions out!  You want to have some pieces, like this:

Pick the container that you're going to use for the parfait.  A word of advice - this is a very rich dessert, so I recommend using a small glass or even a half mason jar.

Sprinkle some graham cracker crumbs in the bottom of the glass.

Use a small ice cream scoop or spoon to put down the marshmallow.  Dip a small spatula in water, then use it to spread the Fluff/Creme.

Crumble a brownie into the glass, making sure you have a full layer.

Now continue layering in this manner until you've reached the top of your container!

Don't worry about your layers being perfect - it's pretty impossible with the gooey marshmallow!
