Mini Salted Peanut Butter Parfaits, made with only 3 ingredients!!!

Coconut cream blended with peanut butter and maple syrup for a decadent dessert…oh yea, and a little chocolate sea salt dusted on top, which technically makes 4 ingredients!  Yes, chocolate sea salt is a real thing!  I bought mine at a specialty spice store, but I’ve seen it at Whole Foods before. The peanut butter coconut cream is layered with chopped peanuts for crunch.  This step is totally optional, but it sure does look pretty!

I love when restaurants serve mini-desserts.  It’s just enough to satisfy your sweet tooth without making you feel too full and over-stuffed!  This dessert is so rich that just a few bites will do!  You can also use this recipe as a frosting for chocolate cupcakes.

The recipe is adapted from The Minimalist Baker and makes 4 mini-parfaits.
