Halloween is my favorite holiday. Sure, I love Christmas with the stockings hanging above the fireplace, and the family togetherness, but there’s just something about Halloween. It’s the decorating, the dressing up, the trick-or-treating, the theme park shenanigans, and of course the food.

I’m thinking this year I might go more glam Halloween, with a lot of black and silver, candles and glittery pumpkins.

Which means the food needs to be more glam too – so there will be no dead man meatloaf.

But there will be some of this:

This decadent peanut butter mousse cup is rich, absolutely delicious, and so easy to make.

  • 1 cup Peter Pan® Simply Ground Peanut Butter Original
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 heaped tablespoons cream cheese
  • 2 tbs powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • pinch of salt
  • chocolate chip cookies
  • chocolate fudge sauce
  • cookies and black icing to make the gravestones


  1. In a bowl blend together the peanut butter, cream, cream cheese, vanilla, powdered sugar, and salt. Add only half the cream to begin with so it doesn't splash, and then once your ingredients are blended add the other half. 
  2. In a second bowl break up the chocolate chip cookies - you will need two cookies per cup. 
  3. Put half of the cookies into the bottom of the cup.
  4. Top with peanut butter mousse, and then drizzle chocolate sauce over the top.
  5. Repeat these steps so you have two layers of cookies, peanut butter mousse, and chocolate sauce.
  6. Next, use the black icing to make the gravestone.
