  • 16 oz. Sara Lee All Butter Pound Cake frozen

White Chocolate Ganache

  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream

Peanut Butter Mousse

  • 8 oz. cream cheese room temperature
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 T. margarine
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 8 oz. whipped topping thawed

White Chocolate Cool Whip

  • 8 oz. whipped topping
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate ganache
  • 15 white chocolate peanut butter cups quartered
  • 2 T. creamy peanut butter warmed


White Chocolate Ganache

  • In a small bowl, add in the white chocolate chips and heavy cream. Microwave for 1 minute and stir. Microwave for an additional minute and stir until smooth. It will take some elbow grease to get it combined and smooth.
  • Once combined, cover with plastic wrap and let chill until thick. It took about 3 hours for mine to thicken.

Peanut Butter Mousse

  • In a large mixing bowl, add in the cream cheese. Mix with a hand mixer until creamy.
  • Add in the peanut butter, margarine, sugar and extract and mix until combined. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl. Give it another quick mix to incorporate anything that isn't thoroughly mixed in.
  • Add in half of the Cool Whip and mix until combined. This will lighten up the mixture for the next addition of Cool Whip.
  • Add in the remaining Cool Whip and mix until all is incorporated. It will be a light and fluffy texture.
  • Remove the Sara Lee pound cake from the freezer and its package. Slice the cake about 1/2 inch thick and be sure you get 16 slices. (You should, no problem)
  • In an 9x9 square pan, Lay down 8 slices of pound cake. I placed them 2 wide and 4 long.
  • Add half of the peanut butter mousse and spread it over the pound cake.
  • Reserve 1/4 cup of white chocolate ganache for the Cool Whip topping.
  • Spoon half of the white chocolate ganache that's left. Spread it carefully onto the mousse and make sure you get to the edges.
  • Add another 8 slices of pound cake on top of the ganache. I laid the slices down in the opposite direction as I did the first time. Push the slices down slightly into the ganache and mousse.
  • Add the remaining peanut butter mousse and spread out. Make sure it goes to all edges.
  • Pour the remaining white chocolate ganache and spread out.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and place into the fridge. Let it set up overnight so it stays together for nice slices.

White Chocolate Cool Whip

  • In a mixing bowl, add in the Cool Whip and reserved white chocolate ganache. Fold in until the ganache is incorporated.
  • Spread on top of the chilled dessert and smooth out.
  • Head the 2 tablespoons of peanut butter in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir to make sure the peanut butter is fluid. If there are still lumps, microwave another 15 seconds and stir.
  • Add the peanut butter into a sandwich bag. Let it cool slightly so when you pour it, it holds its shape. I would say give it about 2 minutes.
  • Cut a tiny hole into the corner of a sandwich bag.
  • Drizzle the peanut butter back and forth on top of the Cool Whip.
  • Add the white chocolate peanut butter cups to the top of the dessert. Cut and serve.
