How many times have you heard the cry, "Mom, what's for dinner?" Christi from the Mom What's for Dinner blog has that covered -- and dessert too. This delightful parfait is easy to tuck into a lunchbox or picnic basket, or makes for a fun addition to a buffet table at a party or casual reception.

Heavy whipping cream and/or store-bought whipped cream
8 ounces semisweet chocolate
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Powdered sugar

How to Make It:

1. Slice up the banana.
2. Melt your chocolate by adding 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream and chocolate to a double broiler, or put it in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave it at 50% power for 3 minutes. Stir until smooth.
3. Layer your jar with banana slices, then chocolate, then whipped cream. Repeat until full.
4. Store in the fridge until you are ready to serve.

Tips from Christi:
"If you have not mastered making whipped cream, it is easy and takes 5 minutes. I posted the recipe here. If you are really in a time crunch you can buy it. I prefer fresh and homemade."
