Peanut Butter Mousse Cups
Servings: 8 cups
Creamy low carb peanut butter mousse in home made chocolate cups are an easy and delicious dessert
- 4 oz cream cheese softened
- 1 cup cream heavy/whipping
- ½ cup peanut butter unsweetened & smooth
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¼ cup allulose or other low carb sweetener
Make the chocolate cups
Melt chocolate and coconut oil in a bain maire and stir until melted. I remove the pan from the heat as it starts to get soft then stir until the chocolate chips have melted.
Using a pastry brush, dip the brush into the melted chocolate and brush the insides of a muffin silicone case. Ensure that there is an even coating of chocolate. Place in the fridge for 10 minutes to firm.
Remove the muffin cases from the fridge and paint another level of chocolate over the chilled case (if the chocolate in the bowl has firmed, gently reheat it). Place the painted muffin cases in the fridge and chill for another 10 minutes.
Make the mousse filling
In a medium bowl, whisk the cream until thick.
In another bowl whisk the cream cheese and peanut butter together until smooth.
Whisk in the allulose and vanilla extract.
Fold the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture.
Gently remove the chocolate cups from the silicone cases. Be careful not to let them melt. If you are working in a warm kitchen keep the tray of cases in the fridge and remove the chocolate cases one at time.
Spoon or pipe the peanut butter mousse into the chocolate cups.
Keep in the fridge until you are ready to serve. Decorate with a drizzle of chocolate is optional.
