When I want to splurge on a rich dessert, I whip up this chocolate-glazed frozen peanut butter mousse. It's so luscious, even a thin slice will satisfy. It tastes like a peanut butter cup.

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 slice) equals 533 calories, 43 g fat (20 g saturated fat), 142 mg cholesterol, 259 mg sodium, 32 g carbohydrate, 2 g fiber, 9 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, combine the brown sugar, 1/2 cup cream and yolks. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture reaches 160° and is thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours or until thickened.
  2. Line an 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pan with plastic wrap; set aside. In a large bowl, cream peanut butter and butter until light and fluffy. Add brown sugar mixture; beat until smooth. In small bowl, beat remaining cream until stiff peaks form. Fold into peanut butter mixture. Spoon into prepared pan. Cover and refrigerate.
  3. For glaze, in a large heavy saucepan, bring the cream, butter and corn syrup to a boil, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat. Add chocolate; whisk until smooth. Set aside 1/3 cup glaze to cool. Place remaining glaze in a microwave-safe bowl; cover and refrigerate overnight. Spread cooled glaze over loaf; cover and freeze overnight.
  4. Using plastic wrap, lift loaf out of pan. Place chocolate side down in a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. pan; place on a wire rack. Discard plastic wrap.
  5. In microwave, warm refrigerated glaze; stir until smooth. Pour over loaf; spread with a metal spatula to completely cover top and sides. Sprinkle with peanuts. Freeze for 1 hour or until glaze is set. Yield: 10-12 servings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 10, 2014

My family really liked this recipe. I thought it was too rich for me and that the peanut butter taste was too overwhelming (not a problem for some, I'm just not a peanut butter fan, everyone else in my family is!). This was a time consuming dessert to make, so make sure to read instructions and give yourself enough time for the steps. I like how it wasn't super solid coming out of the freezer. I would also recommend maybe cutting the glaze recipe in half because I had a ton left over, but we are going to use the excess for an ice cream sauce (my kids idea), so it's all good ;)

This recipe is rich, but not as rich as you might think from reading the recipe. It's so smooth and creamy and doesn't freeze rock solid. It's just perfect. Even people that weren't peanut butter lovers raved about this dessert when I made it! Delicious.
