Merry Christmas Parfaits Plus FREE Printable Toppers


In the spirit of spending quality time with our family this Christmas, my daughter and I hosted my nieces and nephew (along with my sisters and mom, of course) for a Holly Jolly Jingle Hoppin' Cousins' Christmas Party. 

(You know I like to title things.) 

Today I'm going to show you some cute, mini (and oh, so jolly!) parfaits, perfect for my cute, mini (and oh, so jolly!) party guests. 



For these little treats, I used:
1 box of lime jello
1/2 of a large container of strawberry yogurt
and approximately 12 strawberries, quartered.

I'm not even calling this a recipe because all I did was make the jello according to the instructions on the box, divide that evenly among 8 small dishes (I used the Tasting Party Dessert Bowls from Pier 1), add a layer of strawberry yogurt and top with a few strawberry slices.



Easy as can be! When I do party food I do things that can be assembled ahead of time. Who wants to be stuck in the kitchen when guests arrive?? Not me.


Of course, I had to dress these little parfaits up a bit, so I created a set of toppers and printed those out on my trusty epson. Like the last free tags I made, I did these to fit my 2 inch circle cutter. Because that turns a cute topper into a cute and EASY topper.

After I punched them out, I attached them to toothpicks with glue and stuck them into a strawberry.



 The kids gobbled them up while my lil' punkin watched in amusement.



It's safe to say the parfaits were a hit.

You didn't think I would leave without sharing my toppers with you, did you??

Of course I wouldn't. Here they are:
