Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup whipping cream
  • One 3-ounce package cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup chocolate pieces, semi-dark or milk chocolate
  • 3 medium eggs, separated
  • Dash of salt
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Directions

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.

Blend the cream and cream cheese in a medium heavy saucepan over low heat. Add the peanut butter and chocolate pieces and stir until melted. Take care not to scorch.

Remove mixture from the stove and allow to cool. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, beat the egg yolks with salt until thickened, about 5 minutes. Blend this into the cooled peanut butter mixture.

In a large bowl, beat the egg whites until soft peaks have formed. Gradually add the sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form. Fold whites, a small amount at a time, into the peanut butter mixture.

Pour into an ungreased 1-quart soufflé dish and bake for 50 minutes. If pre­paring in individual ramekins, increase oven temperature to 325 degrees and bake for 15 minutes. Serve immediately.

Peanut Butter Shopping Tip

If you're looking for a smoother texture in your finished product, try using confectioners' sugar (also known as 10x sugar) instead of granulated sugar.

Peanut Butter Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
