Peanut Butter Parfait
Great for Parties!
Graham crackers, crumbled
1 cup peanut butter
1 (8 ounce) block cream cheese, softened
4 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 (8 ounce) tub of whipped topping
1 (12 ounce) bag milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup milk
Combine the peanut butter, cream cheese, and powdered sugar in a large bowl
Mix together until combined into a thick muddy mess (this is how Justin described it... and he would know because he kept sneaking spoonfuls).
Stir in the whipped topping. You can save a little to use on top (I saved around a cup of whipped topping to use as garnish) but Justin says it's better all mixed in.
In a separate bowl add the milk and chocolate chips. Microwave in 30 second intervals stirring after each cycle until it's melted. Mine is usually melted and ready to go after 3 cycles (1 minute 30 seconds).
It's time to assemble! You can use a pie plate, large bowl, glass pan, small bowls, etc. I used 4 stemless glasses to match my banana pudding. Start with a layer of crumbled graham crackers.
Then add some of the peanut butter mixture
Then chocolate ganache
Then some whipped topping (if you want)
Then keep going with the crumbled graham crackers, peanut butter mixture and chocolate ganache until you run out of the peanut butter filling.
Top with whipped topping and a graham cracker (I think crumbled peanut butter cups would look yummy on top) and you're done! Cover with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator.
