Chocolate Peanut Butter Parfait

This tasty Chocolate Peanut Butter Parfait is low in fat and sugar... shhh! My mom used to make these when I was in high school, and I've liked them ever since. It's a dessert with low Weight Watcher's points... but you would never know based on how good it tastes! (I don't know the exact points - sorry!) I recently made these when we had friends over for dinner. I made the 'grown up' parfaits in clear plastic cups but saved a little extra and made WP one in a votive holder. (This was the perfect size for a kid! A shot glass would work too.)

After he ate his dinner, I surprised him and said, "I have a dessert for you." I handed him the parfait and his little face just lit up. It was priceless. I will make these again soon just so I can see that look on his face.  Not to mention the fact that every day since I made them, he has asked "Mom, do you have a dessert for me?"  

By the way, our grown up friends liked them too. If you make them ahead of a dinner party or birthday party, just keep them covered and in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
