Reese’s Peanut Butter and Chocolate Tart

I had the worst craving for Reese’s Peanut Butter cups today. It was one of those really bad cravings too – you know, the ones that just won’t go away until you finally give in and feed it.

But with living in Wroclaw, I can’t just feed it . I don’t have that glorious option anymore of just running over to the 711 and buying myself shameful amounts of PB cups. Shame must be planned in advanced now.

Good for you Peanut Butter Granola Bars

I ridiculously love granola bars. I think it’s the Canadian in me. I miss going to the grocery store and being in the granola bar aisle for a good half  hour just staring at all the glorious options. Europe doesn’t share the same love for granola bars—kids don’t get them in their lunch boxes and women don’t carry them in their purses. They just aren’t a thing here.

KRAFT & The Moradi Madness

I like love Peanut Butter. I love the texture, the taste, and most importantly the childhood memories it brings back to me.  I grew up having a PB & J sandwich in my lunch box almost every day; 1 part peanut butter and 2 parts jelly to be exact.  It was my favorite.  Even now, with getting to try some of the best food in Vancouver—I’m still over content with a good ol’ PB & J sandwich.

So with all that said, I’m sure you could only imagine my excitement when KRAFT Peanut Butter Company contacted me, to ask “what my dream PB creation would be”. Ah, all the possibilities!

Once I came up with my dream creation– the chefs in the Kraft test kitchen worked patiently to come up with the “Moradi Madness”; a rich, decadent, chocolate brownie topped with a light PB Mousse and drizzled with chocolate ganache. It was everything I imagined and more.

If you wan’t to re-create the Moradi Madness in your own kitchen, just grab your KRAFT PB and get a little taste of this madness for yourself!

The Moradi Madness:

By the makers of KRAFT & re-invented by yours truly

1 recipe for Chocolate Brownie or Cake

1 recipe for Peanut Butter Mousse (recipe as follows):

3/4 cup KRAFT Smooth Peanut Butter
4 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1 tsp vanilla
3 tbsp milk
1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted
2/3 cup heavy whipping cream, cold.

1 recipe for Chocolate ganache.

Directions for KRAFT Peanut Butter Mousse:

1. In a large bowl beat KRAFT peanut butter, cream cheese, vanilla, and milk together until smooth and fluffy. Add in powdered sugar and beat again until smooth. Set aside.

2. In a separate bowl beat the whipped cream until stiff peaks are formed. Next, working in batches, gently fold the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture to form an airy mousse. This took me 5 batches. Please be careful not to over-beat! Think light and fluffy my fellow bakers. Place PB mousse in the fridge for minimum 1 hour.

3. Once chilled, pipe or spread the PB Mousse on top of the chocolate brownie. Drizzle with Chocolate ganache.

Viola you have yourself the “Moradi Madness”!

I hope you will all love it!
