Peanut Butter Meltaways
2 12 oz bags Nestles White Chocolate Morsels
1 18 oz jar peanut butter
1 12 oz bag Nestles Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels

In large bowl, melt white morsels in microwave on high power for about 3 minutes, stirring every 40 seconds. When smooth, stir in peanut butter till completely smooth and blended. Pour into well buttered 9 x 13 pan.

Melt Semi-Sweet morsels in microwave till smooth. Pour over peanut butter mixture in pan and marble in well with a spatula. Don't completely blend, but just leave a little 2 color swirl for looks.

Chill for about an hour. It is easier to cut and remove from the pan if not too cold. This could also be dropped by the spoonfull into little paper candy cups while warm.

RE: LOOKING for: peanut butter desserts

This dessert is a bit involved, but totally TO DIE FOR if you love chocolate and peanut butter. I have made this twice for my addicted roommate! It's very elegant and VERY impressive.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse Torte

3 cups sugar
2 2/3 cup all purpose flour
1 cup plus 1 tbs. unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp. baking soda
tsp. baking powder
tsp. salt
1 tbs. espresso powder dissolved in 1 cups of warm water
cup vegetable oil
1 cups buttermilk
3 large eggs (room temperature)
2 tsp. vanilla extract

Peanut Butter Mousse

10 oz. milk chocolate (you can also use semi-sweet)
cup creamy peanut butter
cup milk
1 cup heavy cream

Chocolate Glaze

8 oz. bittersweet chocolate, chopped fine
1 cup heavy cream
1 tbs. corn syrup

Preheat oven to 375. Lightly grease and flour a nine inch spring form pan. Sift together sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In an electric mixer with a paddle attachment, add the dry ingredients and mix slowly until well blended. In a separate bowl, whisk together espresso, oil, eggs, buttermilk and vanilla. Slowly add all of the espresso mixture to the dry ingredients. Increase speed to medium and beat until mixture is smooth, about 1 minute. Scrape with a rubber spatula into prepared pan. Bake approximately 35-40 minutes or until cake tester inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool in pan 20 minutes, then invert on wire rack to cool completely.

Peanut Butter Mousse

Melt chocolate over double boiler. When completely melted, add peanut butter. Whisk until smooth. In a separate pan bring milk to a gentle boil, remove from heat. Add half the milk to chocolate/peanut butter mixture. Mix well and repeat with remaining milk, again mixing well. In a separate bowl, beat heavy cream until soft peaks form. With a rubber spatula, slowly fold the whipped heavy cream into the chocolate peanut butter mixture, mixing only until combined.

Chocolate Glaze

Combine heavy cream and corn syrup. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add the finely chopped chocolate, stirring until smooth. Chill slightly to firm.

With a serrated knife, slice cake into three even layers. Smoothly spread of the Peanut Butter Mousse mixture on the bottom layer. Top with middle cake layer. Repeat using remaining Peanut Butter Mousse mixture, capping with top cake layer. Ice top and sides with Chocolate Glaze
