My family loved when I made Strawberry Cheesecake Parfaits, so why not a Raspberry White Chocolate Cheesecake Parfaits? I decided to up my game and mix in some white chocolate AND hazelnut liqueur, which is an outstanding pairing.

Topping with a couple fresh berries and a sprig of mint is an easy way to turn a simple dessert into something elegant. I piped a little leftover cheesecake filling on top to anchor the mint. Voila!

Raspberry white chocolate cheesecake parfaits are a dessert worthy of a special occasion.

No-Bake Dessert Parfaits

Last summer, I attended the Food & Wine Conference in Orlando. What a blast! I met a slew of bloggers that I’d been “friends” with via our blogs, but never met in person and reconnected with some treasured blogger friends.

We laughed, we learned, we stayed up late, we enjoyed incredible food and wine. I knew I’d return this year. And as a bonus, I won second place with my Raspberry Chambord Brownies in Dixie Crystals’ Brownie Contest which just happened to be served at our homestyle, “Sunday Supper” dinner. The ultimate compliment was when a gluten-free blogger friend said she broke her diet to taste one of my desserts. An honor in so many ways.

So it was time to create another dessert, and parfaits make a gorgeous presentation. Plus with a cheesecake twist, they’re absolutely irresistible!
