Strawberry Parfaits with Chocolate Angel Food Cake – Light and airy chocolate angel food cake, fresh homemade whipped cream and juicy strawberries make for an easy but show stopping dessert.
Valentine’s Day is tomorrow. We don’t have much planned, but it will be nice to spend time as a family. My husband almost never travels for work, but he has been out of town this week. He comes home tonight, so it will be good to have him home again. I work from home, so I am home by myself all day every day. But to have my husband away for work, takes some getting used to. I am not used to just cooking for 2 people, and spending the evening alone. At least I was able to catch up on some trashy TV 🙂

So, do you make a special dessert for your Valentine? Sometimes I will make something that my husband really likes. He isn’t a chocolate person, so he doesn’t always eat the desserts that I made. He is more of a cream puff or frosted sugar cookie kind of guy. I might have to make these strawberry parfaits again for him, with a vanilla version of angel food cake. Anything with whipped cream and strawberries are always a win at my house.
I started out making a chocolate angel food cake for these strawberry parfaits. Angel food cake is so light and airy, and makes a perfect base in this dessert. After a heavy meal when you want something sweet, but not heavy, these strawberry parfaits are exactly what you need. Fresh whipped cream takes these over the top. Good looking strawberries are finally back in stores, so go pick some up and make these this weekend!
