Chocolate Peanut Butter Tandy Cake #ChocPBDay

Chocolate Peanut Butter Tandy Cake

March 25th is Chocolate Peanut Butter Day! I’ve been a fan of this combo for a long time.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Tandy Cake takes me back to when I was a kid with 35 cents burning a hole in my pocket. A local company used to sell their version 3 in a pack, 3 packs for a dollar.
So that 35 cents would buy me a pack of tender, moist yellow cake slathered in peanut butter and dipped in chocolate.
As I grew older, the cakes seemed to get smaller. Those bites of deliciousness cost more too.
So I started looking for recipes that came close. Unfortunately each component varied ever so slightly. So I used a good yellow cake recipe. Then I spread naturally moist peanut butter over the top.
Oh and ganache. You have to have ganache.

Thanks to Carla of Chocolate Moosey and Miriam of Overtime Cook are hosting this delicious event!

    How wonderful you were able to reproduce such a marvelous treat from your childhood! I bet it’s twice as good, though, since it’s homemade!!! I know I’d love it :)
