This came from the Rachael Ray magazine. I really liked how easy this was and everything was already in my kitchen. It made a great dessert for me, because I can make them and keep them in the fridge. This is a great thing for the kids too. Use their favorite jelly or sub the creamy peanut butter for chunky if you like.


  1. Using an electric mixer, whip together the cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, peanut butter and 1/4 cup half-and-half.
  2. Slowly pour in the remaining 1/4 cup half-and-half while you continue beating until the mixture is smooth.
  3. Gently fold the cool whip into the peanut butter mixture.
  4. Scrape the jelly into a small bowl and stir it up to make it more spoonable.
  5. In parfait or juice glasses, layer 1 big spoonful jelly and 2 big spoonfuls peanut butter mousse, adding some fruit wherever you like.
  6. Keep going until you reach the tops of your glasses.
  7. Refrigerate the parfaits for a couple of hours or until they get cold and firm.

Insanely yummy and easy, with or without the jelly. Not strictly for kids only.
