1.11.17 First, I must say after looking at the nutritional breakdown, I’m not convinced how “healthy” this is, but I can say that it is delicious. Certainly is quick to prepare, and if piped into a dish or a small glass, actually has good presentation (nice enough for a company dessert). I just sprinkled on a few chocolate chips rather than mixing in, and the consistency is incredibly smooth and peanut-y. Next time, I'm going to add more vanilla Greek yogurt which I think will lighten the mousse texture even more. I can see mixing in some chopped banana or even some crisp pieces of bacon. Sarah, thanks for sharing your recipe. •••••UPDATE 12.25.17••••• FYI, I made this yesterday substituting Nutella for the peanut butter which was a nice variation on this simple dessert.-11 Jan 2017

I had some plain greek yogurt that was expiring, so I searched for recipes with it. I am glad I chose this one to try. Yummy!! I didn't have vanilla left, so I put in a little vanilla protein powder. Perfect little tray when I am craving peanut butter.-16 Aug 2018

I used Adam's peanut butter and plain low-fat yogurt, so it turned out a little thin. but it was really good as a late night, kind of want something sweet, but need protein, snack. made it with honey and omitted the choc chips, but only because I didn't have them.-24 Dec 2017

Creamy Peanut Butter Mousse

I’ve raved about the summer we have had here in upstate New York so many times on my blog these last few months that you’re probably sick of hearing about it. Well, guess what? I’m not done yet. We had another heat wave a couple of weeks back and it just so happened to fall on the week of Mr. Wishes’ birthday.

I found the most perfectly perfect dessert to make for him with this creamy peanut butter mousse: something loaded with peanut butter, a slight amount of chocolate to compliment that peanut butter, and no-bake (that part was for me). Hey, you gotta keep that kitchen cool sometimes, ya know? You can also make my peanut butter corn flake clusters if you’re going for that. Especially considering the fact that he was working on changing our front door knob and had the door wide open most of the afternoon on his birthday. Hello to a zillion new flies as housemates and hours of cooling the outdoors. I totally just sounded like my parents back in the day – “I’m not paying to cool/heat the outdoors!”

I’m so glad you’re here! Follow along on Pinterest for more inspiration!

Anyway, last year I made Mr. Wishes this Reese’s Peanut Butter Layer Cake and I had to deliver again this year…

This Creamy Peanut Butter Mousse recipe comes from The Weeknight Dinner Cookbook: Simple Family-Friendly Recipes for Everyday Home Cooking, which was just released and written by my dear friend Mary of the blog Barefeet in the Kitchen. Mary and I had “met” online years ago when I first started blogging. I had the pleasure of meeting her in person when I went to BlogHer Food Miami back in 2014. Her smiling face was the first familiar face I saw when I was registering at the conference. She’s a great person and an amazing cook! Every single recipe I have made of hers always blows my taste buds away. She’s one of those bloggers I can trust that her recipes will never fail me (and I have made several of them).

I loved Mary’s note in her book under the Creamy Peanut Butter Mousse recipe that suggested sprinkling nuts on top so that everyone eating it knows the dessert contains nuts in case there are allergies. I took her suggestion and loved the bit of crunch that it gave the mousse with each and every bite!

Needless to say, this mousse is addictive and completely delicious. It will serve you well at any potluck, holiday, birthday, or just when you’re having company over for dessert. Here are some other yummy peanut butter recipes for your enjoyment. Definitely make this for the peanut butter lover in your life and check out Mary’s cookbook soon for other great recipes – you won’t regret it! You should also try these Double Peanut Butter Cookies from my friend Michelle!

Peanut Butter Mousse Cups

Anyone can make this quick-and-easy dessert- even IF you claim you’re a horrible baker, I promise! It involves an easy-to-make peanut butter mousse served in a puff pastry cup and topped off with chocolate chips. I’d say this would make a fine Valentine’s Day treat, though it certainly makes for a delicious little dessert any time of the year. I accidentally ate five when I was testing them out. The perfectionist in me wanted to make sure they were perfect before sharing them with the world. That sounds like a valid excuse for eating five, doesn’t it?

I’m partnering with Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry for the next few months to create recipes for my readers, and I also have some very exciting news to share on how you can win a trip to the Pepperidge Farm® Innovation Center in Norwalk, CT by sharing your own idea of creating something delicious with Puff Pastry! Scroll down to the bottom of this post for more info.

These are the cups to look for at the store. They’re made by Pepperidge Farm®, and you’ll find them in the frozen section near the pastries- like pie crust. These are mini dessert bites. If you’d prefer to make a more individual, larger-sized fancy dessert then pick up the Puff Pastry SHELLS instead.

The Puff Pastry cups are so easy to work with. Straight out of the freezer, you just break them apart and set them on your baking sheet with the “cut” lines facing up. They’ll puff up in the oven, as shown. Then you use the end of a wooden spoon to just poke down the middle. What results is a little Puff Pastry container in which to hold your filling. So easy!

This is all you need for the filling ingredients. Minimal fuss.

Mix peanut butter with the sugars, then add the cream and vanilla. There’s your peanut butter mousse filling

If you have a piping bag with a decorative tip, you can spoon the filling into the piping bag and pipe it into the cups. If not, just spoon it into the corner of a freezer zip baggie, snip off the corner of the baggie, and squeeze in the filling from there.

If you really love peanut butter, you can be done with your dessert right here and serve them up this way. I didn’t try this, but my husband also suggested hiding a little piece of banana under the peanut butter mousse (side note: he’s a big Elvis fan).

I finished them off with some chocolate chips. Other ideas: mini chocolate chips, chocolate sprinkles/jimmies, a small chocolate heart, a candy bar chunk… anything! Since these are one-bite desserts, you get a mouthful of peanut butter mousse and the benefit of some added chocolate too. Chocolate + Peanut Butter = LOVE.

My TOP PICK winner from the last Puff Pastry recipe I shared is:

Congrats to Averie! Now it’s your turn >> In the comments below- share YOUR own original Puff Pastry recipe/idea and/or twist on an existing dish using Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry for a chance to win a trip to the Pepperidge Farm Headquarters!

Peanut Butter Mousse Parfaits

Happy National Peanut Butter Day! To celebrate, I teamed up with some fellow bloggers to bring you some delicious peanut butter recipes. Once you're done checking out these peanut butter mousse parfaits, don't forget to scroll down to the bottom of the post for links to more peanut butter recipes.

Years ago, I used to work as an assistant pastry chef at a fine dining restaurant in the suburbs of Philadelphia. We had a few "standard" dessert items, and then a few more that changed every few weeks. Peanut butter parfaits were one of our temporary desserts.

I don't even exactly remember what went in the layer between the peanut butter mousse at that restaurant. I think it might have been topped with crumbled up peanut brittle, which I'm not a fan of eating. So, I made up my own version.

The peanut butter mousse is a blend of peanut butter, cream cheese, sugar and vanilla, lightened with whipped cream. I chose to layer my mousse with chocolate wafer cookie crumbs, but you could also use brownie bits, crumbled chocolate cake, chocolate custard, etc.

Top with more sweetened whipped cream, and more crumbs (cookie, brownie, cake, whatever) or chopped Reese's peanut butter cup minis. Here's a tip: the easiest way to chop these is when they are partially frozen. Pop a few in the freezer for about an hour, then chop with a sharp chef's knife.

These parfaits look fancy, and since it makes two servings, it would be perfect for Valentine's Day dessert. The flavor is decadent, but the whipped cream makes the texture light. But at the same time, the flavors are familiar, so it doesn't "feel" fancy.

Keto Peanut Butter Mousse Dessert Recipe

Since the beginning of keto time, my favorite snack has been something that my husband likes to call “peanut butter delight.” It’s basically peanut butter whipped up with heavy (whipping) cream. If you’re into stevia or new to keto, you can add it, but I don’t. I was pretty satisfied with this recipe by itself for a very long time, but last night I added raspberries and my life changed.

Is peanut butter keto?

Peanut butter causes some debate in the keto community. But if you look at the carbs per servings, they can fit into daily macro requirements.

Because peanuts are technically legumes, strict keto dieters stay away from them. However, they aren&rsquot as high in carbs as other legumes like beans.

Personally, I enjoy my peanut butter. I just factor it into my carb count for the day and eat it in moderation.

For those who refrain from eating peanuts or have peanut allergies, you could substitute almond or sunflower seed butter in this recipe.


You need 2 ingredients to make chocolate ganache: heavy cream and chocolate.

Heavy cream is also used to make the peanut butter mousse, so this is convenient! Just buy a pint of it: 1 cup for the peanut butter mousse, 1 cup for the ganache. Pick up two 4 ounce bars of chocolate from the baking aisle and combine it with the warm cream. That’s it, ganache topping is done.

You can use milk chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, or bittersweet chocolate. As long as you stick to 1 cup of heavy cream and 8 ounces of real chocolate, you’ve got ganache!

Eclair assembly line, let’s go!

Using a toothpick, prick a hole in 1 end of the eclair shell. Transfer the peanut butter mousse to a piping bag fitted with a small-ish round or open star piping tip. I suggest Wilton piping round tip 12, which is wide enough for the mousse to pipe out, but you can still nudge it inside the eclair. Don’t have a piping tip for this? Don’t worry about it. Slice the eclair in half horizontally. Sandwich mousse inside. Easy.

Finally, let each filled eclair take a nice dip in the chocolate ganache topping.

If eclairs have been on your baking bucket list, now’s the time. No excuses. If you stick with a quality choux recipe and method, there’s a million ways to successfully make eclairs at home.
