I made this up, put it in the fridge to cool, left the house, and forgot about it until almost the kiddies bedtime! Had a look and said, "that won't whip into soft peaks!" So we ate it anyway. Well, about half of it. It was thick and fudgy and good. After it warmed up a bit, I did whip it up, taste it, and put it back in the fridge. A little goes a long way (very rich) and I'd had enough for the evening. Pulled out of the fridge today and was (dumbly) surprised that it had stiffened up again. :roll: We ate it anyway! I used semi-sweet chocolate chips because I had some and Smucker's Natural peanut butter. Not as smooth as some others would be, but it's the kind I buy. Good stuff! Thanks!

I followed the directions on this recipe exactly but found that it does not whip up near as light and fluffy as my favorite mousse recipe. I also found the flavor of the peanut butter to be too overpowering as did my kids...they all said it needed less peanut butter and more chocolate. The only plus over my own recipe is this one is much simpler. Recipenapped for the Ausie/NZ 18 Swap
