  • 17 Oreos
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 4 ounces cream cheese I used low-fat
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter I use Skippy
  • 2 tablespoons milk I used non-fat
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Mini Peanut Butter Cups for garnish


  • Oreo Crumble: Preheat oven to 350°F. Place the cookies in a large ziploc bag and use a rolling pin to crush them. Melt butter in a medium bowl on HIGH power, then add the cookies to the melted butter. Stir until all the cookies are moistened with the butter. Bake for 10 minutes on a rimmed baking sheet. Let cool completely before making peanut butter mousse.
  • Peanut Butter Mousse: In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment (or using a hand mixer) beat heavy cream and 1/4 cup powdered sugar until stiff peaks form. Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate. Wipe out the mixer bowl (no need to wash it).
  • Place cream cheese and peanut butter in the mixer bowl and blend with the paddle attachment until smooth. Slowly add the remaining 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar. Add the milk and vanilla. Fold in the whipped cream.
  • Assemble the Trifles: Place 1-2 tablespoons of crumble in the bottom of your serving dishes, deepening on the size of the dish. Spoon a layer of the peanut butter mousse over the crumble. Repeat with remaining crumble and mousse. Top with half of a peanut butter cup for garnish.
  • Refrigerate at least 15 minutes before serving. (Desserts can be made up to 4 hours head.)
  • Note: these are very rich. Consider using small serving dishes or 2 ounce shot glasses instead of bowls.
  • Tip: substitute Cool Whip (regular, lite, or fat-free) for the heavy cream (skip whipping the cream and fold in the Cool whip instead).
