Happy Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary! Don't forget that today is a holy day of obligation.
Heavenly Assumption Parfaits, a simple and beautiful treat using blue jello and whipped topping to create a cloud and sky affect. I really liked the idea, but needed to make mine a little more portable to bring to the play date.
So instead of breaking up the jello and putting it in parfait glasses, I poured the liquid jello into disposable plastic cups and let it set in those. I then put a
layer of whipped topping on top, and garnished it with a blue white
chocolate "M" for Mary. It was the first time I tried a decoration like
this, and though every M wasn't as neat as I might have liked, I think
they turned out really well and added a special little touch!
To make the white chocolate garnishes I melted some white chocolate
chips in the microwave and added blue food coloring. I then put the
melted chocolate into a zip top bag and snipped off the corner with some
scissors to create a piping bag. Then I piped the M's onto parchment
paper that was on the back side of a baking pan. Make sure you
make more than you need because some of them will probably break when
you remove them. Pop the baking pan into the freezer and the chocolate
should set in a just a few minutes! They lift off the parchment paper
really easily, and then you can place them on top of the jello cups. Enjoy!
