Reeses Peanut Butter Mousse

Reeses Peanut Butter Mousse

Posted 2014-11-10 by Kate Matefollow
I love peanut butter and chocolate, but it isn't quite the same as having a Reese's peanut butter cup. The type of peanut butter they use and the chocolate, they just go so well together, so that is why I have used them for this mousse.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 4 servings
Set Time: 1 hour in the fridge

6 mini Reese's peanut butter cups
1 tablespoon of thickened cream for the melted reese's
3 egg whites
1/4 cup raw castor sugar
400 ml thickened cream
4 pieces of dark chocolate

  • Peel the wrappers off the Reese's and place them in a bowl.
  • Microwave the Reese's for 20 seconds and stir with a spoon to combine. If the chocolate isn't melted enough you can put them back in for another ten seconds.
  • Add in one tablespoon of thickened cream and mix well. This helps make the chocolate mix easier to fold into the egg later.

  • Melted Reeses with cream added is nice and glossy

  • Place the eggs and sugar in a bowl and beat with an electric mixer for5 minutes or until mixture is pale, thick and has doubled in voulme.

  • Egg whites should look like this when ready

  • Fold in the Reese's until combined.
  • In a separate bowl, whip the cream until thickened, making sure not to over-beat.
  • Place 4 tablespons of thickened cream into a small bowl, cover and place in the fridge.
  • Add remaining whipped cream to the Reese's mixture and gently fold in.
  • You want this to be as light as possible so it should be done slowly.
  • Spoon into four serving glasses and place into the fridge for one hour to set.

  • Ready to go into the fridge to set

  • Try not to open the fridge much during this time.
  • Remove from the fridge and place a spoonful of whipped cream on top of each and then grate one piece of dark chocolate over each before serving.

  • Notes
    First time I made this it was super sweet.
    I tried to make the egg whites without sugar, but it doesn't work. You can try cutting back the amount of sugar used, but it does need sugar.
    I find to have a spoonful of the cream with each mouthful helps to make it taste less sweet.
