  • 1 16 oz chocolate babka (such as Lilly’s, sold at Whole Foods)
  • ¾ cup heavy cream cold
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup confectioner’s sugar sifted
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate shaved, optional


  • Cut ¾ of the babka into ½” cubes. Set the rest aside.
  • Whip heavy cream on high in the bowl of a stand mixer until soft peaks form. Add vanilla extract and confectioner’s sugar, then continue whipping until stiff peaks form. 
  • In small glass jars, alternate layers of babka and whipped cream for a total of 4 layers. Cut reserved babka into a small dice, about ¼” in size. Place on top, then add chocolate shavings if using, then refrigerate for about 30 minutes before serving to help set the whipped cream. Enjoy immediately!

  • Can substitute any flavor of babka -- cinnamon would be wonderful!
  • Chocolate babka parfaits will keep in a refrigerator for up to 3 days, though are best on the 1st day. The longer they sit, the more likely the fresh whipped cream is to collapse.
  • Chocolate shavings are optional, but add wonderful texture to the finished dessert.
  • Homemade babka can be used, but I am such a fan of Lilly's chocolate babka that I never use anything else for this dessert!
