This quick and easy dessert has my favorite flavors in it... chocolate, orange, and cheesecake. And just the right size for just me and my hubby. It is a snap to put together, but delicious enough for any gathering. Can easily double, triple, etc. the recipe to serve more than two.

This is a decadent, cool and creamy dessert. The rich mousse is really the star of this parfait. It has a hint of orange flavor mixed with the cheesecake and whips up light and airy. The fudge and crushed cookies are perfect compliments to this mousse. This is fancy enough for a special occasion, but easy enough to serve every day. This is very rich... you could easily make 4 smaller parfaits with this recipe (just crush a few extra cookies). Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
