Baby Shower (continued)

So I told you I would share a dessert I tasted at the "Oh Baby" Baby Shower I coordinated last weekend. My client raved over this dessert and let me taste one while I was setting up. 

I love that, besides the fact that it is to die for yummy, you can serve it in little cups (or Mason Jars!)with cute spoons.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Parfait


Graham crackers, crumbled
1 cup peanut butter
1 (8 ounce) block cream cheese, softened
4 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 (8 ounce) tub of whipped topping
1 (12 ounce) bag milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup milk


Combine the peanut butter, cream cheese, and powdered sugar in a large bowl. Mix together until combined. Stir in the whipped topping. You can save a little to use on top as garnish. In a separate bowl add the milk and chocolate chips. Microwave in 30 second intervals stirring after each cycle until it's melted. Mine is usually melted and ready to go after 3 cycles.
  It's time to assemble! You can use a pie plate, large bowl, glass pan, small bowls, etc. Start with a layer of crumbled graham crackers. Then add some of the peanut butter mixture, then chocolate ganache, then whipped topping.  Then keep going with the crumbled graham crackers, peanut butter mixture and chocolate ganache until you run out of the peanut butter filling.
Top with whipped topping and a graham cracker (I think crumbled peanut butter cups would look yummy on top too!) and you're done!
Cover with plastic wrap, store in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.

After some research, I found the blog (Cooking with Carrie) that first posted this recipe! Looks like I'll be able to find some more yummy stuff there too!  Check it out!

Here's a sweet picture of the mommy-to-be at the "Oh Baby" Baby Shower.

I hope all her wishes come true for her and her new little one!
