Ingredients

1/4 cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons gelatin

2 tablespoons water

Chocolate Ganache:

1 cup heavy cream

Directions

  1. In a saucepan, warm the peanut butter and milk then whisk to combine. In a mixer with a whip attachment, whip the cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla until medium peaks. Bloom the gelatin in the water and add to the warm peanut butter. Strain into a bowl and fold in the whipped cream mixture. Pour into flexi dome molds and freeze overnight.
