Nutter Butter Fudge Parfaits

Posted by Lori:

Tonight we hosted our youth group's annual Teen Valentine Banquet and Scavenger Hunt.  For the very first time EVER, it snowed during the whole event!  The snow didn't damper the fun at all and after eating chicken and beef lasagna, garlic breadsticks,  and green beans, desserts the teens were ready for the fun-filled evening.  Recipes are posted on this blog.  Use the search feature.

Along with the traditional Chocolate Delight (I made them into parfaits), I made something new:  Nutter Butter Fudge Parfaits.  They were a big hit!  So much so that one of the Senior boys is planning to check out this post for the recipe.  (Enjoy, Kerry!)

Nutter Butter Fudge Parfaits (Makes 12 in 8 ounce cups)
For the peanut butter mousse, you will need:
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup plus two tablespoons powdered sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4 tablespoons heavy cream

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment or in a large bowl using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, peanut butter, confectioners’ sugar, vanilla, and heavy cream until thoroughly combined and fluffy; about 3 minutes.
For the fudge sauce you will need:
2 cups powdered sugar
1 can evaporated milk
2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla

Bring sugar, milk, chocolate chips, and butter to a boil. Simmer uncovered for 8 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Cool sauce completely.
For the whipping cream you will need:
2 cups heavy whipping cream 
4 tablespoons powdered sugar
Mix with an electric mixer together until soft peaks form.
For the parfait layers you will need:
1 package Nutter Butter cookies, coarsely chopped
Peanut butter mousse
Fudge Sauce
Whipping cream
Directions:  Place a layer of cookie crumbs in bottom of parfait cup.  Pipe or spoon a layer of peanut butter mousse (piping makes it more defined and less messy).  
Add a layer of fudge sauce, then whipped cream.  Repeat layers and top with more cookies.  If you begin to run low on something, just pipe around the edge.  It won't bother the taste at all, but will make it look "pretty" from the outside!  Enjoy!
