My favorite way to enjoy Greek yogurt is by adding peanut butter chocolate chip granola to vanilla and/or honey Greek yogurt. So when I saw the 2% vanilla chocolate chunk Chobani Greek yogurt I knew it was destined for greatness. Greatness that involved peanut butter because nothing pairs better with chocolate. If you disagree, share it with me because I’m not completely closed-minded about it haha. But for now, let’s talk about peanut butter and chocolate.
I decided to make mousse out of the vanilla chocolate chunk Greek yogurt. But not any old mousse, peanut butter cup mousse! This was accomplished by adding some peanut butter to the equation and obviously some peanut butter cups. The addition of the Reese’s candy may have ruined any healthier potential this dessert had but I am totally okay with it. However if you would like to cut back, use dark chocolate chips or chunks instead.

PEANUT BUTTER CUP MOUSSE PARFAITS
8 oz. 2% Vanilla Chocolate Chunk Chobani Greek yogurt
1/4 cup sugar
2-3 tsp honey
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
8 oz. lite frozen whipped topping, thawed
12 regular Reese’s cups, quartered (minis would be fun also)
- Into the mixing bowl of your stand mixer, add yogurt & 1/4 cup sugar. Mix together with the paddle attachment until creamy. While it’s mixing add in a few tablespoons of honey. Taste and check for sweetness, if you like it sweeter add more.
- Place peanut butter into a microwave proof container and heat it for about 30 seconds until it’s warmed through. Add the peanut butter to the yogurt mixture and mix until combined well. Remove bowl from mixer & with a spatula gently fold the whipped topping into the yogurt mixture.
- Spoon half of the mousse into four 8 oz. jars (or ramekins), top with half of the quartered Reese’s, then repeat the layers. Serve immediately or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.
