This recipe is so easy to make and your kids will love helping you with it. It’s a project that you can do with your munchkins to keep them busy and you have a treat at the end.
- 12 ounces milk chocolate chips
- 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 2 Tablespoons creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 cup salted roasted peanuts-chopped
- Put 4 ounces of chocolate chips into a bowl. Place 1/2 cup heavy cream into a microwave safe bowl, cook for about 30 seconds to bring it to a simmer. Pour over the chocolate chips and let sit for about 4 minutes. Add the vanilla and salt and whisk until smooth; set aside to cool to room temperature.
- In a different bowl, combine the remaining 1 cup heavy cream, powdered sugar and peanut butter. Beat with a hand mixer on medium-high, until stiff peaks form, 2 to 3 minutes.
- Fold the peanut butter whipped cream into the cooled chocolate mixture in three batches until just incorporated but still airy. Freeze until the mixture is firm enough to scoop.
- Lightly coat a ice cream scoop or a Tablespoon with cooking spray. Scoop balls of the frozen moose onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Gently press a lollipop stick halfway into each ball. Freeze until firm, at least an hour.
- Before getting the pops out of the freezer, pour the remaining chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl, and cook for about 1 minute. Stir until smooth. Let cool for about a minute.
- Put the peanuts in a small bowl. Carefully remove the mousse balls from the baking sheet. One at a time, dip the balls into the melted chocolate, letting the excess to drip back into the bowl.
- Then dip them into the peanuts. Return to the freezer until ready to serve.
