Peanut Butter Cheesecake Mousse

I was a bit skeptical about this recipe. Not because I didn’t think it could approximate cheesecake, but because I am quite possibly the only person in the world with a fierce dislike for cheesecake.

I can’t put my finger on exactly why I dislike cheesecake, but I have never taken more than one bite without turning my nose up at it. Just not my thing.

This mouse though, is totally my thing. In a word, awesome.

I garnished mine with Craisins, but in retrospect raisins would have made a lot more sense because of the peanut butter flavor. Next time I will try raisins.

      I think I am going to test out a strawberry one with strawberry preserves tonight! I have been thinking about it all day! The peanut butter one totally hit the spot last night!
