step-by-step directions
  • For the Mousse: Melt the butter and chocolate, stirring until smooth. Whisk in egg yolks and refrigerate.
  • Whisk the egg whites with half of the sugar to stiff peak stage, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Beat the cream with the remaining sugar and vanilla until soft peak stage, about 5 minutes.
  • Gently fold the egg whites into the cooled chocolate mixture, then fold the whipped cream. Stir in the bourbon.
  • Spoon into 6 parfait glasses and chill. 
  • For the Brittle: Combine the sugar, corn syrup and water in a heavy bottomed saucepan. Without stirring, bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Let boil until golden brown, about 12 to 15 minutes. When the mixture reaches 300 degrees F, remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients. Pour into a thin layer onto a silicone baking mat or oiled sheet pan. Let cool, then break into small pieces. 
  • For the Whipped Cream: Combine the cream and sugar in a cold mixing bowl. Whip until stiff peaks. Add bourbon. 
  • To assemble, top the mousse with pieces of peanut butter brittle and a dollop of whipped cream.
