I thought about using the peanut butter chips and pouring it over a chocolate cake. Anyone try this?

BTW...I have never even made ganache before, so I know nothing.

Thanks in advance!

I've made a pourable peanut butter icing to drizzle on brownies, cakes, and cookies... never covered a whole cake in it, but it just might work. Let us know!

Are you looking for something that firms up like a ganache? If so, I would think you could do use white chocolate and mix the peanut butter in and then use less cream than normal.

So, the idea for this is to make it like a backwards Reese's cup. Chocolate cake with Peanut butter buttercream and then the peanut butter ganache over the top, just like the chocolate variety is poured over and let drip slightly down the sides, with Reese's cups on the top instead of strawberry's. I guess that I could just make the cake peanut butter and use the regular ganache...but my mind went straight for the peanut butter ganache...lol.

I have a few months to ponder and test this. It will be for one of my best friends birthday in the fall. She has a major weakness for the peanut butter cups.

heat 1 stick real butter and 1/2 cup whole milk to scalding

add 1 bag reeses pb chips stir until melted. Let cool slightly and pour like chocolate ganache works fine. And if you let it get cold you can even whip it up and pipe simple decorations.

And if all else fails it tastes great over ice cream
