Peanut Butter Ganache


For the longest time, my mother in law has been telling me about these brownies that she ate once that were topped with peanut butter ganache. No matter how hard I looked I couldn't find a recipe that seemed similar to what she was describing. So, I decided that I would give it a try and see if I could create something to do it justice. I've made ganache before, and I will say, it has a wow factor when you serve it- but it is extremely easy to make. It is also extremely versatile and can be used as a filling, glaze, drizzle or frosting. While I used this peanut butter ganache to top brownies with, it would be incredible as the filling for a chocolate cake, or as the base in a chocolate cream pie. I hope that you love it as much as I do.

Peanut Butter Ganache

1/2 cup light cream

2 oz white chocolate

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter


  1. Warm the cream in a sauce pan over low-medium heat. Once it starts bubbling on the edges mix, and let bubble again.

  2. Remove from heat- add in white chocolate and mix as it melts.

  3. Add peanut butter and whisk until smooth. Make sure to whisk the peanut butter in so that you aren't adding in extra air.

  4. To use as a frosting, allow to cool so that it firms up prior to frosting. If using as a glaze or filling, feel free to use immediately while still warm and easily pliable. Enjoy!
