You might recognize this dessert from ranch. Another one of Lauren’s recipes. Enjoy!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse Bars

Makes one 9”x13” pan.

Melt over the stove or in the microwave:

2.5 oz Milk chocolate
¼ cup + 2 Tbs Peanut butter

Stir in:

1 ½ cups Graham cracker crumbs

Press this mixture into a 9”x13” pan lined with parchment or waxed paper. Place in the freezer while making the filling.

Melt over the stove or in the microwave:

10 oz Milk chocolate
½ cup Peanut butter

Pour into the bowl of an electric mixer.

In a sauce pan, heat, just to the point of scalding:

¾ cup Milk
¼ tsp Salt

Pour half of the milk over the chocolate mixture. Beat until the milk is full incorporated. Add the remaining milk and whip on high for about 5 minutes, until the mixture cools to room temperature.

In a separate bowl, whip to soft peaks:

1 cup Heavy cream

Fold into the chocolate mixture. Spread over the cookie base and return to the freezer. Freeze until firm. Let stand about 5-10 minutes at room temperature to soften before serving.
