Novelty Mousse Dessert

A traditional mousse is cream enriched with eggs and butter. But the gelatin-thickened whipped cream mousses became popular in the 20th century because of their ease of preparation. I’m curious to try this one.

And semi-obviously, you probably don’t need to pass creamy peanut butter through a sieve. I’d suggest beating it with a tablespoon or two of milk or cream to make it easier to incorporate, but that’s about it.

From a box sold in Canby, Oregon.
