This post is dedicated to all of my peanut butter/chocolate loving blog readers - you are going to thank me for this. A creamy peanut butter mousse, crunchy peanut butter chocolate covered cookies, layered in rich hot fudge and topped with cool whipped cream! What more can I say? It doesn't get much better than this. Anyone can make this dessert and it will impress your family.
Peanut Butter Parfaits
4 ounces cream cheese
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 Tablespoon heavy cream
1 chocolate covered peanut butter cookie
1/2 cup hot fudge sauce
1/2 cup whipped cream
Cream together cream cheese, peanut butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and heavy cream.
Pipe into the bottom of 4 dessert glasses. Top with crushed cookies, hot fudge sauce and whipped cream. Top with a piece of peanut butter cookie. Viola - parfait.
You can serve this dessert in any type of container that you have available. Mason jars would make great parfait containers or even small juice glasses. If you want a more formal look, pipe the layers into champagne flutes or even wine glasses. I'm sure that you can come up a creative and unique way to serve these parfaits. They are delicious no matter how you serve them.
You can thank me later.
