Peanut Butter Parfait

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.
