Ingredients

  • 4 ounces (about 2/3 bag) Mars 3 Musketeers Bites
  • For Strawberry Puree
  • 1 pound fresh strawberries diced (or thawed from frozen)
  • 1/4 cup sugar or equivalent sugar substitute
  • For Whipped Cream
  • 4 ounces (1/2 liquid cup) heavy whipping cream
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar or equivalent sugar substitute

Instructions

  • Use a sharp knife to cut 3 Musketeers Bites in half (optional)
  • Make Strawberry Puree
  • Hull and dice strawberries and place into a large bowl. Stir in sugar, then cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
  • Place strawberries and their juice in bowl of a food processor or blender and process until pureed. Taste for sweetness. If you want them sweeter, stir in 1 Tablespoon sugar, repeating if necessary, until desired sweetness is achieved. Makes approximately 1 1/4 cups of puree. Chill until ready to assemble the dessert.
  • Make Whipped Cream
  • Place whipping cream into a chilled stainless steel mixing bowl. Use a hand or stand mixer and whip cream until soft peaks form (about 1 minute). Sprinkle sugar into the bowl and continue mixing for 1-2 more minutes, until medium peaks have formed and mixture is light and fluffy.
  • Use a silicone spatula or spoon to gently fold 1/2 cup of puree into the whipped cream. Don't over mix or you won't see those nice specks of strawberry in the finished product!
  • To assemble the desserts, place 3 Tablespoons of puree into the bottom of each parfait glass. (This recipe will give you enough for 2 parfaits. Add a layer of whipped cream mixture, followed by a layer of the Bites candy. Repeat layers of whipped cream mixture and candy until the glass is full. Finish with a Tablespoon of puree on top.
  • If desired, garnish with graham cracker sticks and more candy Bites
