Happy Valentine’s Day! Here’s a delicious dessert featuring raspberry whipped cream and meringue kisses to help celebrate. Kids can stir and fold and swirl. They can taste test and crumble kisses and finally they will be very good at layering the parfait.
1 bag (10 ounces) frozen raspberries, thawed and drained
1 ½ cup heavy cream
2/3 cup confectioners sugar
1 ½ cup Greek yoghurt
A handful of small meringue kisses (if they are big crumble them a bit).
To make 4-6 servings:
In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat cream and ⅓ cup confectioners sugar on high until stiff peaks form.
Give the Greek yoghurt a quick stir to loosen it up, then fold it into the whipped cream. With a fork, roughly mash the raspberries with ⅓ cup confectioners sugar then gently swirl them into the whipped cream.
In small pretty glasses, alternate layers of the raspberry whipped cream and meringue kisses, ending by sending out a few of your own kisses as well.
