  • Prep Time
  • 6Servings


  • 3 cups chocolate chips
  • 2 sticks (8 ounces) butter, 5 tablespoons melted
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 5 large egg yolks, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 cups broken graham crackers (about 20 squares)
  • 1/2 cup roasted, salted peanuts, plus chopped peanuts for garnish
  • 1/3 cup corn syrup


Line six 6-ounce custard cups with plastic wrap. In a saucepan over low heat, melt 1 2/3 cups chocolate chips, 5 tablespoons butter and the peanut butter; stir to combine.

In a double boiler, whisk the egg yolks until frothy. Whisk in 2 tablespoons sugar over medium-low heat until doubled in volume, about 10 minutes. Let cool.

Beat the cream with the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar until soft peaks form. Fold the peanut butter mixture into the egg yolk mixture, then fold in the whipped cream. Divide among the prepared custard cups; tap lightly to settle. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate for 4 hours.

In a food processor, grind the graham crackers and 1/2 cup peanuts and then pulse in the 5 tablespoons melted butter.

Unwrap the custard cups, divide the graham cracker mixture among the cups and press to set. Refrigerate for 15 minutes more.

Combine the remaining 1 1/3 cups chocolate chips, 6 tablespoons butter and corn syrup. Microwave at high power until melted, about 30 seconds; stir to combine.

Invert the custard cups onto plates; discard the plastic wrap. Drizzle with the chocolate glaze and sprinkle with the chopped peanuts; refrigerate for 15 minutes.
