How to Make Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse Sugar Cookie Cups


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a miniature muffin tin.
  2. Cream together the sugar and butter until light and fluffy.
  3. Beat in the egg yolk (must be a large egg yolk), vanilla, and almond extract.
  4. In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  5. Slowly add the dry to the wet ingredients.
  6. If the dough is too wet, add more flour (a tablespoon at a time) until the dough pulls away from the sides.
  7. Roll balls of dough that will fill the miniature muffin tin 3/4ths the way full.
  8. Press into the muffin tin and slightly indent the center and press the dough up the sides.
  9. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the tops are lightly browned.
  10. Remove and press the centers down deeply with a teaspoon measuring spoon.
  11. Allow to cool for 2-3 minutes and then gently twist the top until the cookie comes out.
  12. Let cool completely. (Put in the freezer if you want to serve these immediately)
  13. While the cookies are cooking, beat the heavy whipping cream and 1 tablespoon powdered sugar until soft peaks form and then set aside.
  14. In another bowl, beat together the white chocolate peanut butter, cream cheese, milk, and vanilla extract.
  15. Beat in the powdered sugar until smooth and creamy.
  16. Using a spatula, fold in the whipped cream gently.
  17. Transfer the mixture into a frosting bag that has been fitted with a star tip.
  18. Pipe the mousse into the sugar cookie cups.
  19. Garnish with chocolate shavings. Make the chocolate shavings by using a vegetable peeler to “peel” the chocolate bar.
  20. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
