Chocolate Peanut Butter Parfaits Recipe

Chocolate Peanut Butter Parfaits Recipe

  • Creamy peanut butter - 3/4 cup
  • Unsalted butter, softened - 1/2 cup (1 stick)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Confectioners' sugar - 1 cup
  • Vanilla extract - 2 teaspoons
  • Heavy cream - 1 1/4 cup
  • That amazing chocolate cake you ruined, crumbled into crumbs - 3 cups
  • Mini peanut butter cups (optional)

Make the peanut butter filling:
  1. In a bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, combine the peanut butter and butter. 
  2. Beat on high speed until creamy and smooth, about 2 minutes. Reduce the speed to low and add the confectioners' sugar and salt and beat until mostly combined. 
  3. Add the vanilla extract and increase the speed to high and beat until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. 
  4. Add the heavy cream in 3 parts, allowing it to thicken slightly before adding more heavy cream. 
  5. Beat until smooth and fluffy. Turn off the mixer and spoon the filling into a piping bag fitted with a large round or star tip and place in the refrigerator until ready to use. 
  6. Alternatively, you can spoon the filling into a Ziploc bag and cut a hole in the corner of the bag when ready to use.
Assemble the parfaits:
  1. Grab three 8 ounce glasses. 
  2. Scoop about 1/2 cup of chocolate cake into each glass and flatten cake slightly with a spoon. 
  3. Pipe peanut butter filling over the chocolate cake. 
  4. Add another 1/2 cup of chocolate cake and pipe more peanut butter filling on top. 
  5. Garnish with mini peanut butter cups.
