Frozen Chocolate Peanut Butter Terrine



File this under easy peasy.  It's perfect for hot days when you can't stand the thought of turning on the oven. I've made it three times this month; once for a family get-together, once for a birthday party, and once simply because we like it so much.

It's not ice cream, it's not cake, it's not fudge- so I'm calling it a terrine.  Chocolate and peanut butter are melted and folded together with whipped cream then poured in a loaf pan.  A batch of  vanilla whipped cream is layered on top and the whole thing gets a generous dose of salted peanuts before freezing.



This dessert is incredibly rich, so I love to serve it with coffee.  It cuts a bit of the sweetness and I LOVE hot coffee and ice cream together; this reminded me so much of my favorite hot/cold combo.  I think the richness of the terrine makes it even better than ice cream!

Not a coffee fan? A tall glass of milk on the side would also be fantastic.


The recipe is delicious as-is, but I have plans for a hazelnut version.  Simply replace the peanut butter with Nutella and top it with roasted hazelnuts - so easy!

Frozen Chocolate Peanut Butter Terrine
Adapted from a Martha Stewart recipe.                                                                                    [click for printable version]

12 oz. bag of semisweet chocolate chips, or 12 oz. chocolate, chopped evenly
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 1/2 cups heavy cream - divided
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 cups roasted, salted peanuts
Wax paper or parchment
Baking spray


1. Coat a 9x5-inch loaf pan with baking spray.  I used a canola spray.

2. Line the pan with a long piece of waxed paper.  Make sure there is enough wax paper to hang over each end of the length of the pan.  Press the paper to the sides of the pan allowing the oil to adhere the paper to the sides. 

3. In a medium bowl, whip 1 ¼ cups of the heavy cream with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Set aside.

4. Melt chocolate – you can do this in the microwave at 30 second intervals, or over a double boiler.  I used the microwave.  

5. Stir peanut butter into the hot melted chocolate until the peanut butter has melted and the mixture is consistent.  Let mixture cool slightly.

6. Gently fold together chocolate mixture and whipped cream.  Pour into prepared pan.

7. Whip remaining heavy cream, gradually adding the ¼ cup sugar and vanilla. Beat until stiff peaks form.

8. Top chocolate layer with sweetened whipped cream.   Spread evenly with an off-set spatula.  Cover whipped cream with peanuts; gently press them into the whipped cream with your fingertips.   Pick up the loaf pan and drop it once on the counter to settle the layers.

9. Wrap tightly in plastic. Freeze for 3 hours.

10. To remove the chocolate loaf from pan, use a dish towel soaked in hot water to warm the sides and bottom of the pan.  Lift chocolate loaf out by gently tugging on the wax paper.  Slice about 1 1/2 inch thick with a large chef’s knife, wiping the knife clean between slices.

  52. I know it might be a faux pas, but do you think you could sub low-fat Cool Whip for the cream in this recipe?

  53. http://adampaulgreen.com/

    This recipe looks amazing! When my recipes call for "Chocolate chips," I substitute them with "Xocai Healthy Chocolate."
    Their "chocolate" is full of "flavinols" and "Dark chocolate" has actually been proven to be good for you!
    Because "Xocai" "cold presses" all their "cocoa," the "good stuff" is preserved and packed full of "heart healthy antioxidants!"
