So many Stumble Recipies

Posted on February 15, 2012. Filed under: Deserts | Tags: , , |

I got addicted to stumbleupon a few years ago now, and I’ve found a lot of my recipes through that. I have a hard time finding desserts that Matt will eat, so I was excited when I found this one because he likes cheesecake and peanut butter. (However, he claims he doesn’t like ice cream but loves chotacos and drumsticks, and doesn’t like pie but loves pumpkin pie..hummm). It’s chilling in the fridge right now, but I’m 100% sure this will be amazing.

Peanut Butter Cheesecake Mousse Cups
(From: http://www.girlcooksworld.com/2011/12/peanut-butter-cheesecake-mousse-cups.html)

Crust:
1/4 cup sugar
4 Tablespoons butter
3/4 cup chocolate chips
2 cups coarsely chopped roasted peanuts

8 ounces cream cheese
1 cup creamy-style peanut butter
1 cup confectioner’s sugar
1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

chopped peanuts
chocolate shavings

  1. In a medium, heavy bottomed saucepan, combine the butter, chocolate chips and sugar over low heat.  Gently melt the chocolate, stirring constantly.  When the mixture is smooth, add the chopped peanuts.  Divide among your individual bowls or jars and press the mixture to make a bottom crust.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Cover and place it into the refrigerator.
  3. In a separate large bowl, combine cream cheese and peanut butter the mixing bowl and beat until smooth. Reduce speed to low and gradually add in confectioners’ sugar until well combined. Add in sweetened condensed milk and vanilla and beat on medium speed until mixture is creamy and smooth.
  4. Add 1/3 of the whipped cream to the peanut butter mixture and stir to combine.  Gently fold in the remaining whipped cream until well blended. Evenly divide the filling into the prepared serving dishes or jars. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
