Mini Chocolate and Yogurt Parfaits
To make the Parfait:
- In a food processor combine the yogurt, goat cheese, honey, ground pink peppercorns, and salt. Cover and process for 60 to 90 seconds (don't skimp on the time, it takes at least a minute to blend the ingredients until they're creamy and velvety smooth).
- Reserve 1 cup of the yogurt mixture. Add cocoa powder to the remaining mixture; whisk until smooth.
- Layer half of the chocolate mixture in 8 small cordial glasses. Spoon plain reserved yogurt mixture over chocolate. Top with the remaining half of the chocolate mixture. Chill at least 3 hours.
- In a small saucepan heat jam just until melted; spoon over parfaits. Top with pink peppercorns.

I tweaked the recipe and used 1 cup vanilla yogurt and 1 cup Greek yogurt. Also used 1/2 cup honey. It was not too tangy - just right. I would suggest that you add some sugar and use plain yogurt instead of the 2 cups Greek yogurt if you are not fond of tangy stuff.

Mercy! Way too tangy for my group; not pleasant at all. The flavor of goat cheese was overwhelming. (Pay no attention to the number of stars I accidentally gave it, after tasting we dumped the rest down the disposal.)
