Peanut Butter Mousse

Ingredients

Directions

  3. In a medium mixing bowl beat cream cheese, peanut butter, and milk with an electric mixer until combined. Beat in powdered sugar and vanilla until mixture is smooth. Gently fold in beaten whipped cream, half at a time, until mixture is smooth. Cover and chill for 2 hours or up to 24 hours.
  4. To serve, using a pastry bag* fitted with a very large star tip pipe peanut butter mousse into the bowl of 16 teaspoons. Using a pastry bag fitted with a small round tip, pipe Chocolate Ganache over peanut butter mousse on spoons. Sprinkle mousse with chocolate curls. Makes 16 servings.

From the Test Kitchen

*Test Kitchen Tip:

Instead of a pastry bag, fill a plastic sandwich bag with mousse. Snip one of the bottom corners and squeeze the mousse from the bag. The technique works for the ganache too.
