I came up with a delicious recipe today, WHIPPED REESE'S PEANUT BUTTER CUP GANACHE, yeah, you heard me.....and it's really good.
Whipped Peanut Butter Cup Ganache
11.5 oz of chopped Reese's PB cups (I used the small ones, and weighed them on a scale)
1 cup + 1/2 Tbsp heavy cream
2 sticks butter (I used one salted, and one unsalted.)
1/2 cup powdered sugar (optional)
Place chopped PB cups in a heatproof bowl (preferably stainless steel).
Bring cream to a boil, then pour on top of chocolate. Let sit for a few minutes (3 - 5), then stir until chocolate is melted. (your gonna have chunks of peanut butter - but that's okay).
Let cool, If you want to place it in the fridge, be sure to bring it back to room temp before whipping.
Place softened butter in mixer, and cream until well blended, add ganache, then beat until light and creamy. taste. if you want more sweetness, add sugar.
This has a very light, silky texture. Tastes great.
