Sometimes mom just needs some chocolate. Sure there are moms out there that don’t like chocolate…somewhere…and that’s totally ok. More chocolate for the rest of us. Like in these Mini Brownie Parfaits from The Domestic Dietitian. The kids will have a blast layering up delicious chunks of fudgy chocolate brownie with fresh berries and light whipped cream.
