Calling this creation Outrageous Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Cake doesn’t seem outrageous enough once you see what you are planning to bake. There simply does not seem to be any way that one person could get that many Reeses Peanut Butter cups on one cake. You may have to work at it. But it’s worth the end result when you bite into a chocolate-peanut piece of gooey-goodness.

The basic cake is flourless, a boon for friends who cannot or do not eat flour. Flourless chocolate cakes also tend to be extra rich in chocolate, and that’s always good news. The cake is covered in a beautiful buttercream icing with—you got it—a whopping one cup of peanut butter in it. Now that’s dedication to peanut taste. Then you crumble up your peanut butter cups.

You can spread the icing on the layers and add crumbled peanut butter cup between each layer or keep them just for the outside. You choose. But once you spread that icing and put those layers together, start sprinkling the peanut butter cup bits. Do as much as you like. Yammie’s Noshery has the recipe with lots of pictures to help you place and arrange the peanut butter cups. The results will make you happy, and the flavor will have your entire family smiling.

Yammie uses the miniature chocolate peanut butter cups. Some are kept whole to place in a pretty ring around the side of the cake. They seem to fit better to the cake, too. You can see how pretty it looks for yourself at the website. The coup de grace might be the dark chocolate ganache that is piped around the top edge of the cake to set off the peanut butter cup bits. It makes the whole cake look pretty and professional.
