So very easy! Hubby loved it. I used cherries, but agree strawberries would also be very good. For the cookies, I used Keebler chocolate fudge stripes. As I had low fat vanilla ice cream on hand, used that instead of frozen yogurt. Very quick - will definitely use this for dinner party dessert in future.

Strawberries would be a good substitute for the cherries in this quick dessert. For a less sweet parfait, try using plain Greek yogurt in place of the vanilla frozen yogurt.
