Raspberry Parfaits


Mascarpone Prosecco Raspberry Parfaits are a surprisingly indulgent dessert that can be prepared days ahead and kept in the refrigerator for entertaining. The recipe is super easy to make and can be changed up with the substitution of your favorite seasonal fruits. They also look stunning served in stemless champagne flutes.
