Peanut Butter Cup Dessert

Silky chocolate pudding, rich peanut butter mousse, and crumbly chocolate crust stack up together to create this delightful peanut butter cup dessert.

The inspiration for this dessert came when I was scrolling along on Facebook. A photo of a layered peanut butter and chocolate dessert scrolled across my screen and nabbed my sweet tooth’s attention. Unfortunately, this version had an Oreo crust and peanut butter and chocolate layers that were full of flour and sugar. Since I’m trying to stick to Trim Healthy Mama, this would not do.

But it prompted me to recreate it from scratch into a THM, keto, low carb friendly dessert. This recipe, obviously, is the fruit of that spur of the moment craving. It features real homemade pudding thickened with egg yolks alone and made chocolately with cocoa powder. The peanut butter layer dons a cream cheese, peanut butter, and whipped cream base. And the chocolate crust is made with THM Baking Blend.
