About Peanut Butter Mousse:

  • Flavor: If you don’t like sweet flavor, this recipe is not for you! Although the mousse is not overly sweet, it is sweet and may seem too rich for some. The peanut butter and cream cheese help to add a depth of flavor that offsets the marshmallow fluff.
  • Texture: This mousse is smooth and thick. If you’d like to add texture, you can do that with the toppings. Otherwise it is evenly textured.

How to Make Peanut Butter Mousse

Making peanut butter mousse couldn’t be easier. You need a large bowl and an electric hand mixer (or stand mixer).

Add all of the ingredients to a large bowl. This will work best if the cream cheese is at room temperature or very lightly softened so that it creams well and doesn’t cause lumps.

And then mix well. Scrape the sides of the bowl as you need to to make sure everything gets evenly mixed.

From this step you can serve the mouse from the bowl and add toppings, or you can make individual servings in pretty glass cups.

Storage Instructions

This will store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3 days. I’ve not yet tried to freeze it, but I don’t know if it would be best because of the sour cream and heavy cream.
