Peanut Butter Truffle Mousse Cheesecake Recipe- I'm making this ASAP

I apologize to you in advance for this madness. But I do have a good excuse – last week my husband and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary! So he gave me a gorgeous ring and I gave him…a gorgeous cake (don’t you think?). But I couldn’t stop with peanut butter truffle mousse cheesecake. I mean, this is a once in a lifetime celebration, right?

Once in a lifetime, People!

Let’s break this down, shall we?

Peanut Butter Truffle Mousse Cheesecake Recipe - layers and layers of peanut butter heaven OMG

This fluffy and full cheesecake is resting on a chocolate peanut butter Oreo crust, topped off with a thick layer of peanut butter truffle mousse and Reese’s Cups. Then…well, then I felt the need to drizzle it with warm peanut butter sauce.

Peanut Butter Truffle Mousse Cheesecake Recipe- I want a slice!

So I made my husband’s favorite dinner and then surprised him with this beauty. I ran out of time to make him a card though – that’s okay isn’t it? If you’ll excuse my ramblings for a minute let me just tell you how happy I am to be married to my best friend! We are high school sweethearts and had dated 6 years before we graduated college and got married. He still makes my heart go all aflutter and I am full to bursting with love for him. We laugh every day and truly enjoy one another’s company. Believe me when I say I count my blessings every day.

Peanut Butter Truffle Mousse Cheesecake Recipe

Happy anniversary, Husband!

I love you.

More than peanut butter.

Fluffy cheesecake topped with a peanut butter mousse layer and drizzled in warm peanut butter sauce

Ingredients:

Crust:
2 cups crushed peanut butter Oreos (approx. half a pack)
¼ cup butter, meltedCheesecake:

4 (8oz) sticks of cream cheese, room temperature
1 ¼ cup granulated sugar
4 eggs
3/4 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon vanilla extractPeanut Butter Truffle Mousse

8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
2/3 cup peanut butter
1 tablespoon milk
2 cups powdered sugar
2 8 oz tubs Cool Whip
Reese’s Cups (optional)

Directions:

Crust:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Wrap a 9 inch springform pan in heavy duty foil.
  2. Mix together crushed Oreos and melted butter and press into the bottom of your pan and up the sides. Bake for 7 minutes and cool on a wire rack.
Cheesecake:
  1. Boil a large pot of water for the water bath.
  2. In the bowl of your mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the sugar and cream cheese and cream together until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time making sure to scrape down the bowl in between each egg. Add heavy cream and vanilla and mix until creamy and smooth.
  3. Pour batter into prepared crust. Place pan into a larger pan and pour boiling water into the larger pan until halfway up the side of the cheesecake pan.
  4. Bake 45 to 55 minutes until the edges appear to be set. The center will still have some jiggle to it. Close the oven door, turn the heat off, and let rest in the cooling oven for 1 hour.
  5. After 1 hour has passed, remove the cheesecake from the water bath and place on a cooling rack to cool completely. Once the cake is completely cooled, chill for at least 5 hours (overnight is better).
The next morning assemble the PB Truffle Mousse:
  1. In the bowl of your mixer combine cream cheese, peanut butter and milk until smooth.
  2. Slowly beat in powdered sugar then fold in the Cool Whip.
  3. Spoon over the cheesecake then chill at least 3 hours. Garnish with peanut butter cups.

Notes:

  • The warm peanut butter glaze has already made an appearance on my blog. The only change I made was to bump up the peanut butter to 1 cup in order to make it a thicker consistency.
  •  If you are scared of baking a cheesecake watch this vlog from My Baking Addiction. I used Jaime's cheesecake recipe as a base for this creation. The video was very helpful and reassuring especially since I knew I wanted a fluffy and full cheesecake.

Now if you’ll excuse me?

I have some leftovers that need some attention.

    What a tasty anniversary treat! I bet you both enjoyed it plenty :) As for the card bit… pretty sure hubs and I have never exchanged cards. We truly meant to on our first anniversary or maybe it was the second? We both had blank cards that were never given to the other – so you're totally excused… this cheesecake totally makes up for it ;)

    KatrinasKitchen — July 19, 2011 at 10:04 pm

    Thanks Richard! Yes you could use about 3 cups of whipped cream (heavy whipping cream with a little bit of sugar or powdered sugar mixed in). Whip until nice and fluffy and then incorporate. I think that would be just fine!

    Thanks for the recommendation on the cheesecake Cassie! I had made on a few weeks ago for something else and it was a bit flatter than I would have liked. This was *perfect* :)

(For some reason I don't like anyone to be around when I bake, I get nervous o-o) )
    Looks great though and can't wait to make it *_*

    Hi Katrina,

    I found this recipe through Love from the Oven. I do have one question and I hope you can help me out: I'd like to use homemade whipped cream instead of Cool Whip. Will that mess up the mousse recipe? If subbing it, what measurements do you think will make it equivalent?

    Thank you for this recipe. Can't wait to try it. I'm making this for my son's baptism next week. I hope it turns out great. Wish me luck!

    I made this last week for my boyfriend's birthday and it was a HIT! Since we hadn't installed the AC unit yet and we had an unexpectedly hot evening I had to keep it in the freezer so the mousse wouldn't ooze off the top, which took away from some of the fluffiness of the cheesecake but it was still to die for. There wasn't a lick left! Thank you!

    Thank you very much for sharing this recipe. My youngest daughter loves peanut butter so I’ll make it for her next time she comes home from Barcelona.
    I’ll be able to put on top those Reese’s cups because there is a store in Madrid “American Taste” that sells them!

    This looks fab – so I made it. The parts all tasted great, but I wonder if I messed up the topping as it was not as thick nor did it set as well as yours. I, therefore, feel I may have not have put in enough Cool Whip. I used the 12 oz tub size and I just realized that the smaller ones are 8 oz and that there are 16 oz tubs as well. Ergo, I am thinking I needed 16 oz instead. Is that what you used? It still tasted great (even had an office friend call me a culinary genius – ha – can you imagine?).

    can I ask what peanut butter do you use to make this cheesecake. I live in Australia and I am unsure if u meant those peanut butter spread?

      Yes I used peanut butter spread. Thanks for asking- and hello from the other side of the world! :)
