How to Make Chocolate-Peanut Butter Mousse Cake

  3. Beat 1 1/3 cups of whipping cream at high speed with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Stir 1/3 whipped cream into peanut butter mixture. Fold into remaining whipped cream. Spread between cake layers; cover and chill.
  4. Bring remaining 1/2 cup whipping cream and 1 tablespoon butter to a boil in a small saucepan. Add chocolate morsels; remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes. Stir until morsels melt and mixture is smooth.
  5. Pour glaze over cake; garnish if desired with peanuts. Serve warm or chill and serve at room temperature.
