Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse Cups

Heaven in a cup…a cup that you can eat.

I oogled over Evan‘s Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse a few months ago and have had it on my ‘To-Make’ List. All I have to say is that I should have made it sooner. It is so good!!! 🙂


And as an added bonus it was super easy to whip up.


I don’t think it will ever get old to watch someone sink their teeth into a tasty treat…

…hear the Mmmm’s from them…

…and then see their face when you tell them that it is made with tofu!

Bahaha! I love it!

  1. Wow, I’m not even a big peanut butter fan, but I think I could eat an entire tray of these cuties. Those little chocolate cups are perfect! I’ll have to track some down. Fabulous pics!!


    1. You can’t taste the tofu at all and no, the tofu isn’t cooked. It just comes straight out of the carton and into the mousse. Let’s just say that my husband is a die-hard anti-tofu person and he couldn’t get enough of these. He’s already made me make them again. Mmm! And the texture is really smooth and it is very peanut buttery. 🙂

  2. They look yummy, that’s for sure!!!
    But do I have to use tofu? Can I just leave it out, will it still taste just as good?

    1. The tofu is the glue that holds the mousse together. I wouldn’t recommend you leave it out. You may just have to find another recipe for peanut butter mousse if you don’t want to use the tofu. 🙂

  3. These are great but, I can’t find where to buy The chocolate cups and the Tofu :\

    Would I be able to find the tofu at Price chopper? Does it matter what kind of Tofu I use as long as it’s soft?

  4. Love it Love it Love it! Totally brilliant….On my to do like SOON list…i cook for a family and they like small bites of dessert and this is just perfect. Thank you so very much for sharing!

  5. I can’t wait to try these…question for you, Caroline, have you made them ahead of time? I was wondering if I could make them the day before.

      1. Thanks for the quick response! Also, for all those that are looking for the chocolate cups, I found at World Market too. They have these super cute dark and white chocolate tuxedo cups too.

  6. I’ve made this mousse recipe several times and it is absolutely lovely. I end up adding about 1/4 cup more peanut butter (I use Market Pantry’s natural crunchy peanut butter) and it really knocks your socks off. It’s unctuous but not too sweet. I haven’t searched for the adorable chocolate cups, so I’ve just served it inside graham cracker tart crusts instead (I always have the ingredients on hand), and I’ve gotten rave reviews! Thanks for a quick, easy, and crowd-pleasing recipe!

    1. I’m so happy to hear that Mitra! That is one of my favorite recipes, too! I bet it’s heavenly in those graham cracker crusts!!!
