Peanut Butter Mousse PIe

Wow!  Do you love chocolate and peanut butter together?   Imagine a creamy peanut butter mousse with a blanket of chocolate ganache on top.  Another delicious recipe from Disney!  I would use this mousse recipe to fill a chocolate layer cake.  This is a keeper!

Peanut Butter Mousse Pie
Recipe Source: Disney Wonder and Disney Magic, Disney Cruise Lines
1 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup heavy cream, whipped stiff
1 8-inch  chocolate graham pie shell (pre-made)

Chocolate Ganache 
1/2 cup heavy cream
4 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
(I used semi-sweet chocolate chips instead)
plus I added a tablespoon, unsalted melted butter to ganache

First off, in a stand electric mixer whip your whip cream until stiff.  Place whipped whip cream in a bowl and put back into fridge.  Do not clean out your bowl from whip cream.  Add peanut butter, sugar and cream cheese to bowl.

To make the pie, blend peanut butter, sugar, and cream cheese until smooth using a stand or electric mixer.  Add the butter to peanut butter mixture and mix until well incorporated.  Gently fold in whipped cream, making sure no white streaks remain and the mixture is even, and pour into chocolate graham pie shell.  Refrigerate for 2 hours.  Glaze with chocolate ganache.

Ganache instructions, heat cream to a very low boil over medium heat or heat in microwave, stirring constantly if doing stove top method.  Remove from heat and fold in chocolate. Keep stirring cream and ganache until smooth and silky. I added melted butter to mine, but you don't have too.      Cool until lukewarm and spread over pie.  Return to refrigerator for at least another 3-4 hours before serving. Enjoy this super rich, satisfying dessert from Disney!
