Chocolate Parfait with Pistachios: the perfect dessert for any occasion

Dolce far niente say the Italians when they let the warm sun shine on their stomachs after a good meal. I agree with you: at times like these it’s sweet to do nothing and enjoy life. Even better than Dolce far niente is Dolce far niente a plate of homemade chocolate parfait in hand.

A chocolate parfait with pistachios takes a bit of work, but it’s enough for many servings and therefore wonderful moments. Every minute of prep time is an investment in incredible comfort. In addition to the pistachios, you have to put 6 ingredients in the right order and then guarantee a cooking coalition. The freezer does the rest. And before serving, just sprinkle some pistachios on top of the chocolate parfait. That was already.
