Recipe Notes:

This recipe was apart of an Instagram campaign with Lily’s Sweets. We were tasked with showcasing how we enjoy Lily’s Chocolate at home during quarantine! While we were compensated to share a post on Instagram, we were not required to share a blog post. We simply wanted to share this delicious recipe with you guys, because we know you will enjoy it! As you know, we only partner with brands we love, and you have likely seen us mentioning Lily’s Chocolate on numerous occasions, and featured in many of our recipes. It’s authentic partnerships like these that allow us to bring you lots of great (and free!) content!

Cocoa Powder/Chocolate: If you don’t have any Lily’s chocolate around, you could easily sub baking cocoa powder, the method would just change a bit. We would recommend using 1/4 cup of baking cocoa for a rich, chocolate flavor. Instead of using a double boiler to melt the chocolate and peanut butter together, you would skip this step, and whip the cocoa powder and Swerve confectioner’s with the heavy whipping cream. You could probably melt the peanut butter and cream cheese together, then use a hand mixer to combine them, then combine the whipped chocolate cream with the cream cheese and peanut butter mixture. You may want to add a little bit more sweetness if you use cocoa powder instead of Lily’s as Lily’s is sweetened. This is all a matter of personal taste however.

Serve With: You don’t need to serve this with anything, it’s absolutely insanely delicious on it’s own. But crumbling a Lily’s Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup on top is never a bad idea!

Let’s Make It! ​


Bring your cream cheese out on the counter about a half hour before making this mousse for best results. It mixes much better once it has softened a bit. You could also microwave the cream cheese for a short amount of time to soften it.

Set up a double boiler to gently melt the chocolate and peanut butter together. Once combined, stir in your Swerve confectioner’s sugar and salt.

Add your cream cheese to the chocolate, sweetener and peanut butter mixture and beat together with a hand mixer until well combined.

In a separate bowl, mix together your heavy whipping cream and vanilla extract. You just want to whip it until stiff peaks form, about 2-3 minutes.

Now, add the whipped cream to the peanut butter, chocolate and sweetener mixture, then use your hand mixer to combine well, until the mixture is creamy and smooth.

Allow mixture to set in the fridge for about 15 minutes. Then, scoop into serving containers. This recipe makes 6 servings, but we put 3 servings in each glass, just keep this in mind! Crumble some Lily’s Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups on top if you want.
