Got milk? I hope so…

…because you’ll want some with this one.

Peanut Butter Cup Cake

See what happens when I crave chocolate. I’ve been waiting to make this cake after seeing the recipe in a magazine. It’s based on a mix, and has buttermilk and peanut butter cups added to it. The frosting is made from dark chocolate, peanut butter and heavy cream.
What more could you ask for?

Peanut Butter Cup Cake

…maybe that tall glass of milk.

While you contemplate, here’s the same Peanut Butter Cup Cake recipe online.

And here’s what I did different:
• Baked it in two 6″ cake pans instead of the recommended 9″
• Made 6 cupcakes with the leftover batter.
• Used twice as many peanut butter cups. I went a little crazy with the extra and used them on top of the cake.
• Also, I didn’t let it set for an hour in the fridge like recommended. I couldn’t wait that long.

As a side note, I found the dark chocolate in the grocery store. It was the new Starbucks brand that’s been advertised lately on TV.

Peanut Butter Cup Cakes

And if you find that double chocolate and peanut butter just isn’t enough, try it heated a little and served with vanilla ice cream. I did, and it fixed my craving… for now anyway.

Peanut Butter Cup Cake
Yield: one 9-inch layer cake

Peanut Butter Cup Cake

Prep Time 1 hour
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 30 minutes


  • 1 devil's food cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups chopped peanut butter cups (plus more for garnishing - I used 2 bags)
  • 8 oz. dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat two 9-inch cake pans with non-stick cooking spray. Line with wax paper and coat paper.
  2. In a large bowl, beat cake mix, eggs, buttermilk and vegetable oil on low for 30 seconds. Increase speed to medium-high and beat for 2 minutes. Scrape down sides after 1 minute. Fold in 2 cups of the chopped peanut butter cups.
  3. Pour batter into pans and bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool cakes completely.
  4. Place chopped dark chocolate in a medium bowl. Bring cream just to a boil and then pour over chocolate. Whisk until chocolate melts. Add peanut butter and whisk until smooth.
  5. Trim each cake layer so the tops are flat. Place one layer on a cooling rack and pour 1 cup frosting on top. Spread evenly with a spatula. Add second layer and pour remaining frosting over top and sides of cake. Smooth out with spatula.
  6. Allow frosting to set for a minute and gently press remaining chopped peanut butter cup pieces all over top and sides of cake. Place in refrigerator for about an hour to set. Remove and serve.

  1. A-Mazing!:) i made it with the 6″ pans and 6 cupcakes — it was PERFECT!!!!!:) I took it to a dinner party and served it with vanilla icecream, and one of my friends, said “got milk?” … I laughed!:) so wonderful!:)

  2. OMG! I just made these as cupcakes last night as well as the red velvet cupcakes…They were both AWESOME! Thanks for the recipie! :) It’s definately a keeper!

  3. I made this cake for my friends birthday and it was amazing…but I used snickers instead cause he doesn’t like peanut butter and chocolate (weird!) He thought I was a genius :) and so did the rest of the party.

  4. A perfect cake in my eyes! PB & chocolate = deliciousness! this would make for a great cake for my sis’ upcoming b-day… i’ll let you know how it goes but it surely looks delectable! ;)

  5. That looks like it’s going directly to my hips!

  6. Just made this for my husband for his birthday it was awesome so good. Thanks for the recipe.

  7. I’m trying this! I’m going to do the cupcakes because the portion size looks more managable for my WW points system. (A system all my own that doesn’t really work.)

  8. Bakerella! Thank you for this cake! I want to make it as cupcakes for my sons birthday next weekend. Suggestions or tips on making sure they come out right?

  9. I am eating one of these cupcakes now and I think that I might just faint with joy. Ah-mazing.

  10. I like it so coooooooool >> Thanks

  11. Ok – I just made this for a night in with the girl friends. This is one of the richest and yummiest cakes I have ever had. Fantastic!

  12. INSANE! That is pretty much the word to describe my reaction when I looked at the pictures. There may just be some saliva on my computer screen…lol! OMG that looks so delicious, my son ran to the computer screaming I want that one for my bday!! :)

  13. Oh my gosh! this looks sooo yummy! I’m definitely making this for my boyfriend for his birthday…he will love me forever!

  14. I am a new reader of your blog. I love everything! My dream is to own a bakery bookstore and you are giving me great recipes to try. I cannot wait to try this!

  15. Heavenly days! I just found your website and will become one of your biggest (literally) fans! Had to pass it on to my sister, nieces, and cousin! This cake looks sooooooo yummy! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  16. wow!!! this looks fab!!!

  17. I think my son will say he has died and went to heaven when I make this cake….UNBELIEVABLE

  18. I saw this link on your website, and I just HAD to make this cake over the weekend. I went out and specially bought the 6″ cake pans (since I didn’t have any) as well as all of the ingredients. Everything tasted absolutely delicious, but I found that the cakes sort caved in on themselves when they were cooling. When you take them out of the oven, do you let them cool completely on a wire rack before removing from the pans, or do you remove them right away? I ended up taking two cupcakes, mushing them up with some frosting, and “filling in” the holes in the sunken cakes. No one really knew, and like I said, it was absolutely delicious! Would love you advice on how to avoid the cakes sinking in when they’re cooling.

  19. WHAT? Where do you get his stuff from! I made this Friday night. OMG You are awesome. The last piece is calling me…… Thanks! Keep baking!

  20. What a cake !!! It looks amazing… Btw, here did you buy your cake stand ?

  21. I made this cake for our Boy Scout Cake auction, and it was the highest selling cake. Everyone commented on how delicious it looked. Thanks for a great recipe.

  22. I think I just gained 5 lbs looking at the pictures…and it was totally worth it

  23. I do not like peanut butter and I’m sitting here drooling!

    I am SO Making this for my hubby’s birthday (he loves PB cups and dark chocolate) :o)

    on a side note…this site is dangerous! LOL.

  24. Wow! I’ve been lurking around your site for weeks now but had to post my praises! This is unreal!

  25. i can’t find any word to describe how delicious this look likes…OMG…

  26. This is either very sinful or a little piece of what Heaven is like!!!!!! I think i can taste it just looking at it… YUM

  27. I am so making this for my daughters 16th Birthday she is here freaking out and now counting the days on the calendar. Thank You.

  30. I just made this for my dad’s birthday….people were amazed by it! I have never had such a good cake like it! Thanks for the awesome recipe!!

  31. I just made this cake. It came out great. But, I can’t get the peanut butter cups to stick to the sides of the cake as well as you did. They seem to be too heavy. I applied a bit more frosting which helped, but it doesn’t look perfect like yours. Any advice?

    Thank you. I CAN’T WAIT to eat it!

  32. I think i just gained 10 pounds by reading this. I want some RIGHT NOW!!!

  33. This was amazing! I used Martha Stewart’s devils food cake recipe and baked it in 9″ cake pans.

  34. I totally made this cake!!! Holy Freakin Cow!!! It was amazing and crazy delicious, if you want a WOW dessert I recommend making this awesome cake. Thank you Bakerella

  35. I’m baking these as cupcakes as I type.. couldn’t get my hands on peanut butter cups (geographically challenged..:/) so I used chopped snickers bars instead..
    …. and the first batch is DIVINE.. ;)
    I’d eat them all,.. but I am baking them for my sons birthday tomorrow.. ;)
    Thanks for the great recipe..

  36. Just a few minutes ago, my siblings and I made this cake. It is very fun for younger kids to do. (I didn’t say not messy, just fun.) It is in the refrigerator and my mouth is watering! Thanks for giving us all this fun!

  37. My brother, sister, and I were looking for a chocolate cake recipe for a birthday cake. I thought, “Bakerella!” So this is the one we decided on! Looks good! We’ll replace the Reese’s with pecans, chocolate chips, and Heath Bar. Hope it ends up great!

  38. Making these for a Halloween Party tonight…if they last that long.

  39. I made this yesterday for my moms birthday and it was a huge hit!!!! Everyone could not stop gushing about how amazing it was. Warning: cut a small piece because it is super rich. It also requires a big glass of milk!

  40. looks amazing!

  41. This was amazing! I made it for my room mate’s birthday and absolutely everybody loved it. And it has simple ingredients for us poor college students. Even my health-nut room mate had to try a piece!

  42. mmmmm, this looks delicious. im gonna try it for my competition…(loooooks goooooood)….

  43. I’m so making this when we get to Hawaii in a few weeks! YUM!O



  45. I'll look for the recipe and try to post it tonight.

  46. This link will not open up for me. Is there anyway you can post this recipe please?

  47. I made this cake a couple days ago, and it seemed a little dry. Any suggestions? Did I just bake it a little too long? When warmed up in the microwave for about 10 seconds, it is gooey and delicious.

  48. This cake was amazing…Not that it needed it, but I used dark chocolate peanut butter (“I love Peanut Butter Co.” brand) in the icing. Ice cream was definitely necessary to cut the rich taste.

  49. french kiss – it as about 2/3 full. Not more than 3/4 full, though.

  50. So beautiful! I would love to make these in cupcake form for my boys this week. How full did you fill the cupcake liners? Thanks for an amazing, inspiring, scrumptious blog!

  51. dishesanddiapers – maybe you overbaked.

    bakingforthecure – thanks

    Anonymous – I followed the recipe amounts for the cake and then I think I used another bag for the decoration.

    Marie @ Make and Takes – it’s yummy!

  52. Ahhhhhh! I can’t know about this! Too good! I think a moment on the lips is worth the lifetime on the hips with this one!!!

  53. You said you doubled the amount of pnb cups. Was that in the cake itself or just to deocorate the finished cake?

  54. Amazing!

  55. I made this yesterday, and my cake turned out dry. What could I have done wrong?

  56. It’s a good way to go.

  57. Whoaaa! Sugar shock… I’ve gone to heaven and I ain’t comin’ back!

  58. vicki – thanks

    Anonymous – you’re a good friend.

  59. I made this for peanut butter and chocolate loving friend’s birthday! It was very rich, and she loved it! Eight regular size PB cups equals one cup. I used one cup of PB cups and one cup of chocolate chips. Garnished the top with four chopped PB cups.

  60. Heaven on a plate!!

  61. Mandy – ooh yum! thanks.

    Pam – glad it was a success.

  62. Love it, I just made this for my son’s 16th birthday, thanks for sharing.

  63. Yummy! If you’re a chocolate & peanut butter fan, check out my recipe for chocolate fudge cake w/ peanut butter icing. I worked on the recipe for a year after having the cake at Chocolate World in Hershey, PA. It’s divine!:)

  64. mevrouw cupcake – I totally agree. Hopefully he’ll do something sweet to deserve it before next year.

  65. Boyfriend’s birthday cake for next year…check! Fabulous, this is the perfect way to have your Reese’s peanut butter cups and eat your cake too!

  66. I saw your pics. Boy, was he lucky.

  67. I made this for my husband for Father’s Day and he LOVED it! I posted pictures on our family blog here:

  68. yeo – I usually do them about halfway to 2/3 full.

    Next time you bake them, split your cupcake tray into thirds and fill the cups at different heights to experiment.

    Melinda Zook – hope you like it.

    Patti – good description

  69. omggggg. :) That is a work or art, right there. A work of art that deserves to be devoured obscenely. This is definately on my summer baking list. :)

  70. Oh My GAWD! This looks delicious, I am making it this weekend!

  71. I’ve been reading thru your posts and those are amazing!! I’ve 1 question and I really hope you can help me with it :)
    How do you make your cupcakes so full? How much do you usually fill them? Thanks.

  72. You’re right Becky and actually so are you Veronique.

  73. OH MY GOD! I dont know what to say about that! It seem so yummy! You are really insane!

  74. Delicious and just to die for. If your a fan of peanut butter and chocolate paired together, you’ll be in heaven. YUM!

  75. mom@home – thanks and you’ll love the choc chip pie. I may have a recipe for a chocolate pecan pie. I’ll see if I can find it.

    kendalls mom 3 – thank you!

  76. Awe, I’m in love!!

  77. I made this cake for Father’s Day. Yummy!!! I love your blog. I first saw you on Martha Stewart and since then regulary check your blog for new ideas. I made the cupcake pops (except I didn’t put them on a stick), made this cake and plan to make the chocolate chip pie. I need a good recipe for Chocolate pecan pie…do you know of one. Thanks for being so willing to share your awesome talent with us.–Amanda

  78. Gail Aguiar – I’m glad you loved it. Happy Birthday to your son!

    Carole – Yay! Glad you made it. And that’s ok. Just means more for you and your hubby!

  79. Made this for Father’s Day today and it was a hit! I think it was a bit too rich for my littler kids but it wasn’t about them anyways! I posted my results if you are interested. Thanks again for the inspiration!

  80. OMG! Just made and ate your wonderful cake! It was delish! The whole thing is gone. Made it for my son’s 11th birthday family get together and there was not a crumb left. Thanks for sharing – I love your ideas!

  81. Leah – maybe your chocolate wasn’t hot enough and the two were not able to blend together enough. If it happens again, just cover it with more peanut butter cups.

    yolanda – good, huh!

    Amber – me too! I think you’ll like it.

  82. Oh my sweet goodness! My mouth is watering and I HAVE to try this recipe! It looks divine. I adore peanut butter and I’m obsessed with chocolate. YUM!

  83. OMG is what I said when I saw this picture. I went straight to the market to buy buttermilk and reeses pb cups and made these that same night. YUMMY!!! Got Milk???

  84. Bakerellla: I made this amazing cake last night for my Top Chef Finale Party, and it definitely was a hit! The only problem I had was that my frosting wasn’t quite as smooth as yours, it turned out a bit grainy once I added the peanut butter. Any suggestions for next time?

  85. janel – great, I’m glad it worked for you. And actually, I’ve just recently become a fan of dark chocolate. Now, I even get my m&ms in dark chocolate too.

    Jess – thanks

    Sarah – no, but you could probably just use a recipe you already like and add the pb cups to it.

    Jaina – I think you’ll like it.

    Laurel – I know, I had to take some to work so I wouldn’t eat it all.

    Deshona – Wow, they gave up ice cream? They did like it. Yay!!!!!!

  86. YUMMY!!

    this cake yesterday for hubby’s b-day! WOW!!! Lets just say it was the best cake we ever ate!!! The cake it self was amazing!!! And to top it off the frosting wow!!! My kids loved!! They even put there ice cream to the side!

    I did jump the gun…and frosted WAY to SOON after it came out. I tried to put it in the fridge to cool on wire rack while I made frosting. So my extra peanut butter cups melted before I could cut the cake.

    So it made it a little messy…BUT….messy is always better!

    THANK YOU so much for this cake…we loved it! Cant wait to try more of your stuff. Wish mine came out as beautiful as your…but next time!

  87. I made this cake last weekend…it was amazing but I made my boyfriend take it with him when he left because it certainly wasn’t helping my diet at all. Thanks a ton!

  88. That looks absolutely divine, can I move into your kitchen? Haha. I’ll have to try that recipe sometime, it looks and sounds delicious!

  89. That looks AMAZING!! I’m definitely making those. Love your blog!

    The recipe calls for a box mix, what if I wanna make it without the box mix ie: from scratch. Do you know how should I measure the ingredients?

  90. Holy goodness! That looks so yummy…my husband would just love this kind of cake! It is so pretty too. Love it!

  91. Thank goodness it was our anniversary on Saturday…it made for a great excuse to make this mouth watering beautiful cake. Thank you for loving dark chocolate as much as we do. (We even found “The Dark Knight” dark chocolate reese’s PB cups…score!) Thanks for an amazing anniversary treat.

  92. Jennifer – great! Glad you liked it.

    Robyn – I wondered where you’ve been.

    Anonymous – I really don’t know.
    I haven’t frozen any yet. I need to because I get this ? asked a lot.

    SugarLoveHoney – thanks Stevie!

    Tennsley – tasted that way, too!

    Megan Dinsdale – I’m going to check yours out now. The cupcakes, about 20 min I think. I just kept an eye on them.

    ainsleyandmatthewmom – I know what you mean.

    Kristin – no kidding here, just a serious sweet tooth.

    Hotbuns86 – I heard your stomach all the way over here.

  93. Oh my gosh!!!! That cake is BEAUTIFUL! My sister is getting married in a few months. She wants to have cakes as centerpieces for her tables. She looves chocolate….even better, she LOVES peanutbutter!!!!! She was going to hire some ametuer cake decorators from like Boston……Now I’ll just tell her, hire BAKERELLA!!!!!! :D Thanks it looks soo divine…..

    *…growl…* (That’s was my stomach!)

  94. are you kidding me? amazing.

  95. Oh. Wow. From a woman who cannot even have peanut butter in the house at the moment for fear of eating the entire jar….just…WOW. **drool**

  96. So I ended up making it and it was a hit. You can see it here:

  100. I have missed popping in here! What a lovely post! Come by and visit when you can! Lot’s of hugs!

  101. Drooled over it; Made it for my Dad’s birthday; Loved it!! Thanks! It was a big hit.

  104. My husband would love this! I am making this soon. Beautiful pictures, as usual.

  105. Just wanted to give you a heads up that I found a seller on etsy using your pictures of your red velvet cake balls to sell her own. I’m pretty sure it’s not you since they are in a different state and you have no link to an etsy shop. You might not even mind, but I thought you had a right to know, at least, since they are your pictures. I love your blog!

  106. WOW! They look so good! First time to your blog…and I am in love! I am so ready to try to bake some of those.My kids and hubby will go crazy. Trying to stop myself from running to Wal-Mart right now to get the things. Wake up kids!! lol

    Anonymous – you could pair it with mini ice cream bonbons. that could be cute.

    Ingrid – congratulations.

    chantal – sorry about that.

    madrekarin – I wish! That would be great.

  126. Oh, my. Yep. That’s the cake of my dreams. Only in my dreams, it does nothing to my body. Nothing at all. :)

  127. oooooo so delicious!!! I should not be looking at your blog when I am trying to lose weight!! Tempting,oh so tempting!!

  128. Hi, Bakerella!
    I’ve recently started my own blog as you’ve inspired me to be all I can be much like your dessert creations. Perhaps when you have a moment you might take a look and let me know what you think. Any help is greatly appreciated!
    Thank you!

    Any helpful comments from the rest of you Bakerella Fan Bloggers is welcomed!

  129. Bakerella,
    I am hosting a bridal shower in july- do you have any suggestions for a dessert. I am going to serve the cupcake bites, but can you think of something I could pair it with? Thank you!

  130. Me again. Quick question. I want to do the 6″ and the cupcakes, too, but I was wondering what temp you put the oven at for each? Is it the same as the recipe? Thanks!! Lisa

  131. This looks amazing! Although I fear my jeans won’t fit the day after this enters my kitchen! It looks worth it though ;)

  132. After I saw this cake on Flickr I was hoping you would post the recipe! I’ve been dreaming about since!

  133. Oh. My. So rich, so delicious. This could be what heaven is like in my book.

  134. Woah…that looks intense. I know a certain someone in my home that would go wild over this.

  135. I think I would go into a coma! I can’t wait to try it! :)

  136. Oh. My. You are relly like a chocolate fairy-Godmother or something.

  137. you’ve been tagged!

  138. I’m thinking I should put a link on my blog, saying to come here to see everything on my *to make* list. Another winner looking recipe. Better looking then the other one on-line! I think fathers day would be perfect! Thanks.

  139. Oh my…my husband would think he had died and gone to Heaven! I’m going to have to make this for Father’s Day.

  140. Wow..this is like the ultimate “he dumped me” cake ..>_>
    Anyway, I was looking at your cake ball recipe, and I wanted to stick a stick through it so that they look like lollipops…is the chocolate bark thin enough for me to dip in the cake with the stick in it, without the bark sucking my ball off? LOL man that sounds weird but yeah..>_> then i can decorate with sprinkles and stick in a bag :D cause i think dipping it would use less chocolate perhaps, and it seems easier than rolling..
    Thank you!

  141. Oh, my! I think if you look for Yummy (dictionary), this photo should be there.

  142. Forget the indulgent chocolate body wrap, this cake is all I’ve dreamed of! You are amazing Bakerella!

  143. Oh my gosh!! How delish! My family would love that. I have to make it.

    I got the “Hello, Cupcake” and started making the butterflies today. They are coming out pretty cute, but they dry fast, so it’s tough to get the pattern before they set. Any tips? Will send photos if you are interested.. That book is amazing. Thanks for the recommendation!

  144. Attention Facebookers! As a personal tribute, I have just created the group “Fans of Bakerella” on FB!! You guys please feel free to join up and spread the word, cheers!

    p/s: dear bakerella, i hope you’re alright with the whole idea ;)

  145. Wow, it’s hard to go wrong with this flavor combination. I need to get myself a 6″ pan. It’s so cute!

    I bet this cake would work well with the Mini Peanut Butter Cups found at Trader Joe’s, not to mention speed up the process of making these a bit.

  146. I am thirsty just looking at it! I am TOTALLY making this one!

  147. Your cake looks way better than the cake in the original recipe!


  148. This looks super yummy, i noticed our names have alot in common =D

  149. Wow, you’d definitely need a milk chaser for this one! Looks amazing.

    It’s that time of the year again, where Accidental Hedonist looks for writers who wish to expand their repertoire. The goal here is to both provide exposure to new food writers,.

    I’m doing things a little different this time. As more money has come in, I now can afford to add two more writers for a grand total of three.

    Requirements? First, you must have your own blog to promote. Second, you should have a backlog of content that I can read in order to get a good idea on your writing style.

    If you wish to put your name in the hat to be considered, and can promise to write one post per week for six months, send me an e-mail at Kate AT accidentalhedonist DOT com.

  153. oh so mouth watering…

  154. Hey! I’m in an article for a really popular school magazine for my foodblogging, and I mention you so I thought I’d send you the link. Keep up the good work!

  155. Do you bloggers know what we would do for just ONE bite of cake like that in prison?

    Well, I do. We would KILL for it. I was locked up and treated like an animal because I sold a little packet of “meth” to an undercover cop in Florida (my mother, “Chiff0nade” put me up to it).

    Now that I am free on parole, I am going to attempt to try your recipe and make up for a LOT of lost time.


  156. oh Yuuuummmmmmyyyyy! A def. must try! The only thing is that with it getting so hot now, sometimes super choc. seem s a bit too much. Do you have any light or fruity dessert ideas?

  157. yummy!You are so good at this!I just discovery your blog!=P

  158. Yours looks way better than the actual recipe’s picture. All those peanut butter cups…oh my!

  159. That looks soooo delicious looking! Fabulous good Bakerella!

  160. I’m usually pretty moderate – look at the blog, read the recipe, get a sense of level of difficulty – none of that happened – there was a voice that said “tag…go directly to tag, do not read recipe”… how scary is that!!!

  161. Yummo !

  162. You are insane in the best way possible. This looks awesome!

  163. omg your cake is amazing!

  164. this is above and beyond OUTRAGEOUS. You’re amazing!!!! Oh my…

  165. OM can’t let the hubby see this!

  166. YUMMMMM! Now you got me wanting some of that cake, and I am in the middle of packing for a move across country! can’t make anything, but I sure can dream of it. ;)

  167. I am in awe. Literally.
    My mouth is still hanging open in pure amazement. You are so good at EVERYTHING!

  168. nothing better than peanutbutter and chocolate.

  169. Loved your post. That cup looks OUT of this world, and I am a PROFESSIONAL PASTRY CHEF who graduated from Peter kump’s Culinary School in Brooklyn,

    Yeah, it might go to the hips, but when your butt is the size of mine, what difference does it make?

    Besides, my 450-pound BF “Big Bear” loves big butts.

  170. Holy cow – even at 7:00 in the morning this looks amazing and oh so tempting! I thank you for the recipe… but my hips don’t :)

  171. What more could I want? A personal trainer to work that off. BUT! It’ll be soooo worth it. I’m almost afraid to make it. I just might LOVE it.

  172. It’s just not fair! Every time I think you’ve out done yourself and there’s no way you’ll top that you come back with another amazing creation! I’m still working on your other recipes/creations. I can’t keep up, let alone come up with something original! Guess I’ll add this one to the list.

  173. OMG, that looks amazing!! I think I’ll make it for my birthday!

  174. It looks dreamy and delicious! YUM!

  175. YUMMY! I can’t wait to try this as well as as your cake pops!

  176. Why are you so amazing?

  177. Bakerella strikes again!!
    Yummm…I am checking out that recipe!!

  178. Wow does that every look delicious!I’m on my way out for the glass of milk! :)

  179. Wow, these could really make my gray and rainy morning so much better!

  180. Good golly Miss Molly! I think my drool just shorted out my keyboard…

  181. Oh my goodness! I gained 12 pounds just looking at it!

  182. Oh dear, my mouth is watering

  183. I just licked my computer screen.

  184. I am pretty sure i just gained 5lbs LOOKING at those pictures! I have a friend who LOOOOOOOOOVES PBcups, I sent her this link asap! =)

  185. When you posted the link for this recipe I looked at a cupcake link there. There are directions for making cute doggie cupcakes. I thought I would post the link in case anyone is interested.
    Thanks for the great ideas, I love them!

  186. Does your blog have insurance? My laywer will be in contact with you soon to discuss the bill for fixing my keyborad. It got ruined because I was drooling so much after seeing this cake. So it’s your fault I guess!…

  187. the cake is saying give me a bite congratulations ..

  188. Yours looks SO much better! That’s a serious cake right there!

  189. Oh my Gosh!

  192. Wow-I didn’t think a peanut butter cup could be improved — until now!

  195. How amazing!!! My husband will love me forever if I make this for him. You’re a creative genius!!!

  196. Oh, my that is what my fantasy looks like – chocolate and peanut butter galore! Yummo!

  197. Oh my, I’m glad to hear you have chocolate cravings as serious as mine! I’d better hit the gym before I try to make these! Thanks for the post, I always look forward to what you will do next.
    P.S. I was a fan even before you were a big TV star! hehe =)
