I a some Reeses Peanut Butter cups that i want to use as a filling for a chocolate cake.....but i don't know what to do with them! All the recipes i've found here show how to make a filling that tastes like it with PB and chocolate.
Can i just smash them up and add them to some buttercream? Whipped cream? Any ideas??
I am not sure I understand what you are trying to do. Are you wanting to crush some existing peanut butter cups and use them as filling or would you like a recipe for peanut butter cup filling that you can make? I have that and would be happy to give it to you but IMO if you use the existing PB cups or make your own filling, the filling will be a bit stiff and dry to use in a cake at least without mixing it with something and I have never done that before.
If you melt them you could add that to your buttercream...not sure what it will do....I however, have put peanut butter and melted chocolate into my buttercream Using less shortening and butter to allow for peanutbuter, and it was yummy.
BeeBoos-8599, please post your recipe for peanut butter cup filling. tia
I've added them to chocolate bc... YUMMY. Then again I've added all sorts of candy bars (like kitkat!) to my chocolate bc to use as a filling. The bc softens the candy and it's delicious.
This recipe for peanut butter cup filling makes ALOT so you can cut it in half if you wish. If you have leftover it keeps forever in a ziplock in the fridge or you can freeze it for use later. ENJOY.
1 18oz jar peanut butter
1 lb powdered sugar sifted
1 stick butter melted
foxxymomma do you melt candybars first?
Nope. Just crush them up to little crumbs. Just like when you make an oreo filling and crush up the oreo's...
well I will have to try this, my grand daughter will only eat chocolate with peanutbutter, otherwise she does not like chocolate....she likes white chocolate which technically is not chocolate LOl
thank you BeeB00s-8599_ , this sounds really good. i will try it..i just seen this post tonight.. thanks again
