Peanut Butter Mousse in Chocolate Cups with PB Caramel Sauce

Peanut Butter Mousse in Chocolate Cups with PB Caramel Sauce

After taking my first bite of this creamy dessert, words simply failed me. As a writer I searched my vocabulary and I couldn’t find words to adequately describe the taste and flavor of this light dessert. Luscious? Well yes. But more than that. Tantalizing? You bet. Melt-in-your-mouth? It does. 

No matter how you choose to describe it I encourage you to try it for yourself. A layer of creamy peanut butter flavored mousse made with Peanut Butter & Co. White Chocolatey Wonderful is a special treat to be shared with loved ones. Top it with a drizzle of peanut butter flavored caramel sauce and it takes it up another notch. One bite and you will be at a loss for words yourself. Instead, you’ll just sigh with satisfaction…and there’s nothing wrong with that.

Electric Mixer


For the peanut butter mousse 

1 cup Peanut Butter & Co. White Chocolatey Wonderful

1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature 

1 cup powdered sugar 

1 tsp. vanilla, or 1/2 tsp. vanilla syrup 

1 cup whipping cream 

For the peanut butter caramel sauce 

1/2 cup white granulated sugar 

1 cup heavy cream 

1/3 cup Peanut Butter & Co. White Chocolatey Wonderful

6 store-bought chocolate dessert cups 

1/2 cup roasted peanuts 

1/2 cup chocolate shavings 


  1. For the mousse: Using an electric mixer, beat Peanut Butter & Co. White Chocolatey Wonderful and cream cheese in a large bowl until light and fluffy about 3 minutes. Add powdered sugar and vanilla and beat until well blended. In a separate bowl using clean dry beaters, beat whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Fold whipped cream into peanut butter mixture in additions. 

  2. For the caramel sauce: In a dry heavy saucepan cook sugar over moderate heat, without stirring, until it begins to melt. Continue cooking sugar, stirring with a fork, until melted and cook, without stirring, swirling pan, until a deep golden caramel. Remove pan from heat and add cream (caramel will bubble and steam). Return pan to heat and simmer, stirring, until caramel is dissolved. Add Peanut Butter & Co. White Chocolatey Wonderful and simmer, stirring, until smooth and thickens slightly. Note: Sauce can be made up to 1 week ahead and kept in an airtight container, chilled. 

  3. Assembly: Spoon mousse into chocolate cups. Drizzle filled cups with peanut butter caramel sauce. Sprinkle with chocolate shavings and peanuts. Refrigerate.
