This rich, Creamy Peanut Butter Mousse dessert recipe takes ten minutes to make and will not fail to impress for an every day treat, holidays, or birthdays!


  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • Shaved chocolate curls, for topping
  • Crushed peanuts, for topping (optional)


  1. Pour the cream into a mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer until peaks form, about 2-3 minutes.
  2. Scoop the whipped cream into a small bowl and place in refrigerator.
  3. Combine the cream cheese, peanut butter and vanilla in a mixing bowl and beat until smooth, about 2 minutes.
  4. Add powdered sugar and beat again for another minute.
  5. Add the milk and beat until smooth, about 20-30 seconds.
  6. Use a spatula to gently fold and stir in the whipped cream until combined. Transfer to an 8-inch square pan (can also serve in individual serving dishes or trifles).
  7. Top with shaved chocolate and chopped peanuts, if desired.
  8. Serve immediately or chill until firm. I cut it into squares after chilling it and served on dessert plates. Enjoy!
