A chocolate and peanut butter lovers dream! With an OREO cookie crust, hot fudge, a thick layer of peanut butter mousse and topped with chocolate and peanut butter chips, these bars are cool, creamy and completely delicious!
When I was a kid, my dad managed our local grocery store in the small farm town where I grew up. On Wednesday afternoons, after school I would go to the store where my dad a stack of their weekly sale flyers waiting for me. My job was to deliver the flyers to the small retirement apartments just a few blocks away. Distributing the flyers to each apartment usually took me about an hour, and I was to then return to the grocery store where I would collect my payment from dad. Dad didn’t pay me in cash. Instead, we would walk up to the small candy section at the store where I could choose any regular sized candy bar! My choice was always a chocolate bar, which I would immediately take home, unwrap and dip into the peanut butter jar. From this very moment, my obsession with chocolate and peanut butter begins!
If you’re a regular reader of my blog, or follow my Facebook page, you’ll discover that I truly LOVE to share any recipe that involves chocolate and peanut butter. Last month I posted my Peanut Butter Lovers Brownie Bars, and it appears, you guys love peanut butter and chocolate just as much as I do….I think we’re gonna be really great friends!! 😉
These Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse Bars are an amazing way to love that coveted chocolate and peanut butter combo. You’ll start with a OREO cookie crust, which is then topped with a nice layer of hot fudge. From here, you’ll layer on a creamy, delicious layer of peanut butter mousse, and then top with chocolate and peanut butter chips! The creamy and crunchy textures here are incredible, and I really love the addition of the chocolate and peanut butter chips on top, as it brings all the flavors together perfectly.
Other than the crust going into the oven for a few minutes to set, this dessert is no-bake, which is perfect especially during the spring and summer. The cool mousse filling is fluffy and creamy, and the perfect treat to enjoy after a warm day.
These bars would be fantastic for so many occasions. I’m thinking these would be perfect for our annual Memorial Day cookout, or perfect to bring to a pot-luck dinner or picnic. Its also simple enough for a casual dessert to enjoy right at home. My son and I enjoyed a slice together after baseball practice last night, which was a fantastic way to end the day.
Here’s how these cool, creamy and delicious Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse Bars come together:
If you love chocolate and peanut butter just as much as I do, then you’ve gotta try these bars! They’re cool, creamy with the perfect amount of chocolate and peanut butter in each bite. Enjoy!~Erin
