Almond Joy Chocolate Buttercream Parfait // The chocolate buttercream in this parfait is to die for, it's wonderfully decadent and completely guilt free! Win/Win! | Tried and TastyWhen I presented at the Salt Lake Home Show last month, my theme of the hour was ‘The Lighter Side: Your Guilty Favorites Made Guilt Free’.  I made my Healthier Zupas Nuts About Berries Salad CopycatMashed Cauliflower Shepherd’s Pie, and I whipped together my Strawberries & Chocolate Buttercream Mousse! This recipe couldn’t be more representative of the theme for my presentation. At first glance, you’ve got to think that yummy chocolate buttercream is loaded with all sorts of sugar. Am I right?! Nope! You’d be mistaken!

This chocolate buttercream is 100% guilt free. 100%. Just look at how rich and creamy that is. Now imaging a spoonful of it. Simply delightful. As I was cleaning up my presentation, a good friend of mine was munching on some of the samples put together my chocolate buttercream with the Maple Candied Almonds and said ‘you know what this reminds me of? An almond joy!’. That’s where this recipe was born, I knew immediately I would have to make a recipe of the yummy awesomeness all together. It’s totally fantastic, I hope you’ll give it a try!

    I have a lot of almonds in my cabinet and was trying to find ways to use them. This sounds pretty good! So I will give it a shot.

    This looks wonderful and so healthy too! I try to eat these types of parfaits for breakfast every morning so I’ll have to give this one a shot. I love that it has almonds!
