These playful parfaits let you take a decadent dessert “to go”. They can be a special treat tucked into your packed work lunch, but also feel indulgent enough to bring on a luxurious picnic. Using jars gives you the freedom to assemble your parfait, then screw on the lid and take it with you anywhere. These parfaits can be assembled a day (or even two) in advance.
