No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cakes

These No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cakes may be small but are enormously decadent!

Directions for peanut butter cakes:

Step 1: Before making this small, but decadent dessert, think about when you will serve it.

It needs to be refrigerated overnight and as the cookie sets, it softens and turns into a cake-like texture.

Step 2: If you have a nice flat serving tray, assemble your cookies on it and make sure your tray will fit into the refrigerator.

Otherwise, use a cookie sheet and transfer your cakes to plates and then serve.

Step 3: Using the whisk attachment on your electric mixer, beat cream and sugar until stiff peaks form, about 2-3 minutes.
