Ingredients

Chocolate Mousse
2 cups cream
1 egg
1 egg yolk
6 ounces dark chocolate
4 tablespoons sugar

Peanut-butter Mousse
1 cup cream
6 eggs
1and 1⁄2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 and 1⁄2 cups peanut butter

Coupe
2 cups toasted salted peanuts, roughly chopped
1 cup whipped cream
Chocolate shavings for garnish

Instructions

Chocolate Mousse
Whip the cream until soft peaks form, and reserve in the refrigerator. Whisk the egg and egg yolk with a mixer set on highest speed until pale yellow and doubled in volume.

Melt the chocolate in a bowl set over a saucepan of hot water.

Stir together the sugar and 1⁄4 cup of water in a small pot, bring to a boil over high heat, and continue to boil for 1 to 11⁄2 minutes or until it reaches a temperature of 240 degrees. Remove from heat, and carefully pour the syrup into the eggs while whipping on high speed. Once the syrup is incorporated, continue to whip for 1 more minute. Remove the bowl from the machine and fold in the melted chocolate until the mixture is smooth. Fold in the whipped cream, and set the mousse aside.

Peanut-butter Mousse
Whip the cream until soft peaks form, and reserve in the refrigerator. Whisk the egg and confectioners’ sugar with a mixer set on highest speed for 5 to 7 minutes, until pale yellow and doubled in volume. Add the peanut butter, and whip on high speed for 1 minute. Gently fold in the whipped cream. (This mixture will be thinner than the chocolate.)

Assembly
Spoon half the chocolate mousse into a medium-size glass bowl or individual glasses, forming a 34-to-1-inch layer, and smooth the top. Place in the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes to harden slightly. Pour half of the peanut-butter mousse on top of the chocolate, smoothing the top with a spatula, and return to the freezer. Sprinkle half of the chopped peanuts evenly over the top. Repeat the process, layering chocolate mousse, peanut-butter mousse, and nuts. Garnish with a layer of whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Freeze for 1 to 2 hours until firm. Remove from freezer 10 minutes before serving.
