Chocolate Kahlua Mousse Parfaits

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins


  • 12
    cup 2% low-fat milk, very cold
  • 14
    cup Kahlua
  • 1
    (3 1/8 ounce) envelope instant chocolate mousse mix
  • 1
    tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 14
    cups finely crushed chocolate graham crackers
  • 1 12
    cups Cool Whip, thawed
  • sugar wafers (optional) or Oreo cookies, etc, for garnish (optional)


  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the milk, kahlua, mousee, and cocoa. Whip on low speed until well blended. Slowly increase the mixer to high, whipping for 4-5 minutes, or until fluffy.
  • In 4 clear glass dessert bowls (or wine/champagne glasses), layer 1/8 of the mousse, 2-3 tablespoons of graham crumbs, and 3 tablespoons of Cool Whip.
  • If choosing to garnish with cracker crumbs rather than cookies, reserve about 1/4 teaspoon of the cookie crumbs. Repeat the layering, using the remaining ingredients.
  • If garnishing with crumbs, sprinkle the remaining crumbs on top of each serving. If garnishing with cookies, leave the top of the parfait empty for now.
  • Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving. Before serving, garnish with cookies if desired.
