Light in texture but full of flavor, these Reeses Peanut Butter Semifreddo Bars make an irresistible treat to beat the summer heat! Meaning "half-frozen" in Italian, semifreddo stays soft and creamy - no churning required! Peanut butter flavored mousse is frozen and dipped into Belgian confectionery coating, then sprinkled with crushed peanuts and a variety of fun chocolate toppings.

Semifreddo: 

1.) In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, whip semifreddo ingredients on low speed for 1 minute.

2.) Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl and make sure the peanut butter is broken up and fully incorporated.

3.) Continue whisking on medium speed for 60-90 seconds until medium peaks form. *See recipe notes.

4.) Pipe or scoop mixture into silicone popsicle molds. Insert sticks and freeze.

 

Chocolate Coating & Decorations: 

1.) Melt the confectionery coating and peanut butter together. 

2.) Remove frozen semifreddo bars from the silicone popsicle molds and dip into confectionery coating one pop at a time. Gently shake off excess coating before placing the pop on silicone or parchment paper to set. Reheat coating as necessary to continue dipping.

3.) Place remaining coating in a piping bag and stripe pops as desired. Top with décor before stripes set.

4.) Do not allow pops to thaw. Place in freezer if they begin to soften.
