No-bake chocolate & peanut butter cake
Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Total Time:20 minutes (up to 8 hours if you let it cool in the fridge)
Serves: 8
2 cups heavy cream, cold
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup smooth, natural peanut butter (not unsalted)
1 box of wafer cookies, chocolate
1. Whip 1 1/2 cups of your cream with sugar. Whip until the mixture forms peaks. Set aside.
2. In another bowl, stir peanut butter until soft. Add 1/2 cup of cream and whisk until the mixture is fluffy.
3. Mix the peanut butter mixture with the cream and sugar, folding gently until completely combined.
4. Add a tiny bit of your cream mixture to the bottom of six cookies (to create a sort of glue) and place them in a circle on a plate. One cookie should be in the center of the circle. Add a layer of your cream to the top of the cookies and spread it to the edges. Place another layer of cookies followed by another layer of cream on top. Repeat until you have 6 layers of cookies/cream. Decorate with remaining cookies.
5. Allow your cake to cool and set in the fridge for about 8 hours before serving.
Pro tip: Not a fan of wafer cookies? Try chocolate chip cookies or soft, chocolate sugar cookies instead.
