Peanut Butter Cup Cake

Yield: 12 servings

However awesome you think this cake is, it's more amazing than that.  The smooth creaminess of chocolate ganache with the peanut butter filling is fantastic.

I used Hershey's chocolate because that's the flavor closest to PB cups, but if you wanted to make it more classy then you could use some high quality dark chocolate.

  • Pesto Cheeseball
  • Horseradish-Bacon Cheeseball
  • Gorgonzola-Cranberry Cheeseball
