Cook's Tips:

To make parfaits ahead of time, assemble as recipe directs except do not top with chocolate sauce. Place parfaits covered in freezer. When ready to serve, top with sauce and garnish, if desired.

Vanilla frozen yogurt can be substituted for the vanilla ice cream, if desired.

Any favorite candy bar, chocolate-covered pretzels or chocolate-dipped peanuts can be used in this simple ice cream treat.
