Sometimes you just need a mammoth sized chocolate treat. This recipe serves 2 chocoholics nicely.

This is similar to the traditional “dirt” recipes, only I made it even more indulgent. I know, big surprise!

I used cream cheese, butter, and coconut extract to amp up the chocolate pudding and turn it into a decadent mousse. Throw in a heaping portion of crushed oreos and more coconut and you will never be able to make traditional dirt ever again. This is seriously outrageously good. You have been warned.

 

If you are not a fan of coconut, no worries! Simply leave out the coconut and extract and you have a purely heavenly chocolate parfait! You really can’t go wrong either way. Pinky swear.
