Take-out Tuesday, Peanut Butter Mousse Minis

I have a wonderful low cal treat to share today!

These mini mousses are only 2 ingredients!

Peanut Butter & Cool Whip!

I used Lite, but you could use Fat Free

Begin by mixing the peanut butter with an equal amount of thawed whipped topping

about 1/2 cup each

Then continue to add Cool Whip about 1/2 cup at a time,

stirring to combine

I only used about 3/4 of the 8 oz tub,

I didn’t want to loose the peanut butter flavor

but you can incorporate the whole tub if you like

Place mini cupcake papers on a shallow pan that will fit in your freezer

I used a cookie scoop to make these mini balls

Pop the pan in the freezer for several hours and

then transfer to a ziplock bag until ready to serve

Serve them straight from the freezer

They taste like a combination of ice cream and cheesecake!

Try a bite!

These satisfying, not too guilty bites, clock in at about 75 calories
