Last week I wrote about the Nutella and peanut butter smoothie my kids enjoyed making. This week it is another chocolaty peanut butter concoction, but this time a truly delectable and yet super easy to make dessert! This is one of my husband’s favorites so I named it after him 🙂
Tim’s Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Mousse Pie
½ cup of heavy cream
8 ounces of mascarpone
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 1/3 cups heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 Tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
6 ounces of chocolate chips
1 pre-made chocolate cookie crust (I like the Mid-el Gluten free crust)
Chill metal bowl for whipped cream. Whisk together ½ cup of heavy cream, mascarpone, confectioners’ sugar and peanut butter in another bowl. Then fold in the chocolate chips. In the chilled bowl add the remaining heavy cream, vanilla and confectioners’ sugar and mix on medium speed until soft peaks form when you take the whisk out. Fold ½ of whipped cream into peanut butter until combined. Fold the other half in. Pour mousse mixture into the crust and chill in the fridge for about 2 hours.
This is so simple to make! It would be great for Father’s Day, a 4th of July barbecue or any day really. What is your favorite dessert to make?
