Whether or not you consider this chocolate dessert easy will depend upon your skill set (Lol). It does consist of three components but they’re not difficult. My husband, who is no where close to being a chef, made this for me, so I have faith that you can too!

Chocolate Crumbs Instructions: Make the chocolate crumbs by combining the sugar, cocoa powder, flour and salt in a bowl. Stir in the melted butter and mix together. Using your fingers, crumble the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake in a pre-heated 400 degree oven for 15 minutes. Stir and return to the oven for 10 additional minutes. Allow to cool slightly. Note that the crumbs will be soft at first but will harden as they cool. While the crumbs are baking make the peanut butter mousse.
Peanut Butter Mousse Instructions: Whisk together the cream cheese, whipped topping, sugar, peanut butter, vanilla and salt.
Chocolate Mousse Instructions: Make the chocolate mousse by placing the chips in a bowl along with a tablespoon of the milk and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir and return to the microwave for an additional few seconds if needed. Stir in the remaining milk and set aside to cool slightly. In a separate bowl, whisk together the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and whipped topping. Fold in the chocolate mixture and combine until smooth.
You’re almost done! So tell me, do you consider this chocolate dessert easy?
How to Assemble: Place a heaping teaspoon of crumbs at the bottom of a dessert glass, add two tablespoons of the peanut butter mousse, another layer of crumbs and two tablespoons of the chocolate mousse. Repeat the layers and finish with a topping of the chocolate crumbs. Makes approximately 4 servings.
