Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse Parfait
Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse Parfait combines sweet and salty by topping a creamy peanut butter mousse with rich chocolate. This dessert is perfect for family dinners on a busy night as well as entertaining. This recipe is quick and easy, going from start to finish in under 30 minutes. Here’s how to make it.
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 1 minute
- 1 pint heavy whipped cream
- ¼ cup honey, divided
- 1 tsp real vanilla extract, divided
- 8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
- ¾ cup natural sugar-free peanut butter, room temperature
- ¼ tsp salt
- 4 oz unsweetened chocolate, chopped
- 1/3 cup roasted peanuts, chopped
Place the heavy whipping cream, one tablespoon honey, and ½ teaspoon vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl and beat with a hand mixer or immersion blender until light and fluffy, approximately 2-3 minutes.
Scrape the sides of the bowl while blending to incorporate all ingredients. Once finished mixing, set aside.
Place the cream cheese, peanut butter, 2 tablespoons honey, ½ teaspoon vanilla extract, and salt in another large mixing bowl and beat with a hand mixer or immersion blender until light and fluffy, approximately 2-3 minutes.
Gently fold in 2/3 of the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture until completely combined.
Divide the mousse between four dessert or parfait bowls and set in the refrigerator to chill for approximately 10 minutes. Reserve remaining whipped cream, to serve.
When you’re almost ready to serve, place the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds. Stir and heat for another 15-30 seconds or until chocolate is completely melted. (Total cook time will vary).
Remove the chocolate from the microwave and stir in the remaining tablespoon of honey, then set aside.
Remove the peanut butter mousse from the refrigerator and top each serving with a spoonful of the remaining whipped cream, a drizzle of melted chocolate, and some chopped peanuts.
Serve and enjoy!
