  • Rating ****

4 Servings


  • 3/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 4 squares (1 ounce each) white baking chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups whipped topping
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh raspberries
  • Sliced strawberries and additional whipped topping, optional


In a saucepan, heat the cream just to a boil.

In a bowl, combine sugar and cornstarch; stir in yolks until combined. Stir a small amount of hot cream into yolk mixture; then return all to saucepan.

Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until mixture reaches 160 degrees F and is thickened. Stir in chocolate until melted; add vanilla. Cool to room temperature, about 15 minutes.

Fold in whipped topping. Place 1/4 cup each in four parfait glasses. Combine blueberries and raspberries; place 1/4 cup in each glass.

Repeat layers of chocolate mixture and berries twice. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Garnish with strawberries and whipped topping if desired.
