Are you craving a yummy and easy to make peanut butter dessert? Well, look no further, because this one was designed especially for you!
1 packet unflavored gelatin
3/4 cup sugar free syrup, vanilla flavor
24 ounces cream cheese, or neufchatel cheese, softened
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1 cup heavy cream, whipped
Grated chocolate (optional)
Whipped cream/topping (optional)
In a small pan, sprinkle the gelatin over 1/2 cup syrup and let soften 5 minutes. Heat and stir over low heat to dissolve the gelatin completely. Do not boil. Cool to room temperature. (You can also dissolve the gelatin in the microwave by heating it about 30 seconds on high. Stir until completely dissolved.)
Beat the cream cheese and peanut butter until creamy. Gradually beat in the remaining 1/4 cup syrup and the gelatin mixture; beat until fluffy. Gently fold in the heavy cream. Pour into a greased 9-inch pie plate. Chill until set, about 5-6 hours. Garnish with whipped cream/topping and chocolate, if desired.
