This recipe is GREAT! It makes a lot of filling. It was so good though that I kept baking cakes and cupcakes until I ran out. My family, neighbors, and co-workers loved it!

This is still my most requested Peanut Butter filling. Thank you so much for sharing! It is also really yummy inbetween a banana cake with a simple chocolate ganache poured over the top!

Just used it as a filling in my cupcakes for work.....wonderful. I had difficulties with the whipping cream, I think it was too hot in the house, substituted it with cool whip (small container) and it was wonderful.

A+++++ This filling is fabulous - I am new to cake decorating/baking, but this is the best filling recipe I have tried! The filling doesn't 'get lost in the cake' like the pudding mixtures I've played with before - it's thick enough to truly seperate the layers but still light and fluffy! The peanut butter taste is there, but not overwhelming. Best of all - it's so EASY to make compared with similar recipes I've seen on other websites: no freezing, etc. Love it!! Thanks again!

This is so good!! I used this as a filling in a chocolate cake and plan to use it for my own birthday cake this year :) I had quite a bit leftover, so I actually froze the leftovers and then pulled out a container, folded in some Cool Whip and poured into an Oreo pie crust for a peanut butter pie - that was fantastic as well!

This recipe sounds really yummy! I'm going to try it this weekend! Can anyone tell me how much it makes? I'm just doing a simple 2-layer, 8" round. Should I halve the recipe?

After not receiving any responses to my lat post I decided to try half of the recipe. Boy am I glad I did! I still have a lot left over! Half of the recipe made about 3 cups for me. Having said that, it is soooo good! :) It is rich, and goes perfectly with chocolate cake. Very good and I will make it again!

Have to say thanks for this recipe, I get requests for this more than any other flavor! I pair it with a dark choc fudge cake~ AMAZING!! It does make alot, although my husband doesn't mind, I usually have to throw him out of the kitchen (with his spoon in hand!) Thanks again!

 I tried this recipe and really did not like it as much as my peanut butter buttercream icing recipe!! I only tasted it without trying it on the cake because I made the cake for a kid next door. The cake scraps from leveling cake were eaten up before I got the filling made so I had no cake left to try it on. Maybe it tasted better while eating the chocolate cake, I really do not know. But just tasting it by itself I am not a fan of this filling recipe at all!!
