Toblerone parfait

Parfait means “perfect” in French, but is also  one of those ice cream terms that happen to mean different things in different parts of the world. In continental Europe, “parfait” denotes a frozen, ice cream-like dessert  made with an unusually high amount of cream. Unlike “ordinary” ice creams, European parfaits are traditionally still-frozen (i e should not be churned, not even by hand). This means that they are perfect whenever you need a frozen dessert but lack an ice cream machine!

Let us stay with the European influences and prepare a parfait based on the world-famous Swiss Toblerone chocolate –  in its most typical form made up of  milk chocolate flavoured with honey, nougat and almond.


Toblerone – the classic version. Contrary to widespread belief, the particular triangular shape is apparently not a reference to the mountain top of Matterhorn (which later came to figure on the package)..
