If you like a good mousse and are a fan of peanut butter, you are going to be in HEAVEN over this easy recipe. The best part is that it takes a mere two or three minutes to throw together and only calls for three ingredients that you easily may already have on hand…at least if you do any baking on a regular basis.
I based this recipe off of this awesome Vegan one by Dana over at minimalistbaker.com, so if you want the crunchy/clean eating version of this, make sure to head on over to her site. Mine is just a very unhealthy version of hers and it also is a large enough batch to use the whole tub of whipped topping.
I actually had no intention of turning this recipe into a post on its own. I was developing another recipe, a Moose Tracks Trifle (that recipe is coming very soon so watch for it and if I don’t update this post with a direct link to that recipe maybe just type Moose Tracks Trifle into the search bar and you should be able to find it within a few days of me posting this one), and this peanut butter mousse I made for two of the layers turned out so tasty that I just had to share it on its own too. Anyway, so that was a much larger than necessary explanation of why the pics on this recipe look like butt. :)… It was a last minute, I better take pics of this even though it’s not staged, post. So sorry in advance.
Let’s just dive right in.
Like I said, it’s just three easy ingredients that you may already have on hand.
You just plop them all in a medium to large bowl, and stir until smooth. It’s so easy my six year old could make this.
- 1 (16 oz) Tub Whipped Topping (thawed)
- 1 C Peanut Butter
- ½ C Powdered Sugar
- Scoop all ingredients into a medium to large bowl.
- Stir until well mixed and smooth.
- Cover and refrigerate. Mix well before serving.
P.s. Make sure to check out my entire SWEET TOOTH SECTION of the blog, I don’t post things unless I absolutely love them so there is some really tasty stuff there.
