So here it is, my first of hopefully many recipes to share with you! This is something that I plan to do in 2013 is cook/bake more here at home for the family! This was a super fun project that turned out to be a scrumptious hit Christmas evening for the entire family!
Peanut Butter ~ Chocolate Mousse (serves 12)
Ingredients: 1 qt. frozen chocolate yogurt softened ; 1 (3 1/2-oz. package of butterscotch pudding mix; 2 cups chunky peanut butter; 16oz whipped topping 2 (2.1-oz. butterfingers bars)
- Combine yogurt, pudding mix, peanut butter and whipped topping in a large bowl; mix quickly (so that yogurt remains frozen)
- Spoon yogurt mixture into a medium bowl; smooth top evenly with a spatula. Or, you can do like I did and spoon into individual servings ~ jars, dishes, foil muffin tops cup liners etc…
- Place candy bars in a re-sealable plastic bag; crush with a rolling pin. Sprinkle crushed candy evenly over the yogurt mixture.
- Freeze until mousse is firm (about 1 hour) Keep frozen until ready to serve.
*make 24 hours ahead ~ mixture will tasty up to three days
*for a richer variation, substitute ice cream for frozen yogurt
We all know, half the fun is the packaging ~ so I bundled the individual servings up with twine, stamped some fun winter words and adorned them with bells and birds…
