Mini Chocolate and Peanut Butter Dessert Shooters Recipe

By Ole & Shaina Olmanson

I made a peanut butter pie today, as did many people. I greeted my husband with it when he walked in the door. For the kids, however, I served up tiny shot glasses full of peanut butter cream and chocolate ganache, a bit of cookie crumble for small mouths. Tiny hands like small desserts, and so do mommy hands.

I was once served a trio of dessert shooters at a restaurant, and I was instantly thrilled at the chance to be able to try several options without ordering the massive portion size.

Mini Chocolate and Peanut Butter Dessert Shooters


  • 12 chocolate cookies, crushed
  • 4 1/2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar


  1. Heat the cream just until the edges start to bubble, but not to a full boil. Remove from heat, immediately pour over chocolate and whisk until smooth. Stir in the vanilla. Allow to cool and then whip until thick. Scoop into piping bag.
  2. Beat together cream cheese and peanut butter until smooth. In a separate bowl, beat 1/2 cup cream and powdered sugar until they are thick with stiff peaks. Fold the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture. When completely incorporated, fill a piping bag.
  3. In each of 12 shot glasses, place a teaspoon of cookie crumbles followed by a layer of ganache and 2 tablespoons peanut butter cream. Pipe a small amount of ganache on top, if desired.

Makes 12 small dessert shooters.
