  1. This looks like a giant, super creamy peanut butter cup- except it’s cake and has peanut butter cups in it, so it’s even better!

  2. A friend sent me a recipe for a peanut butter eclair cake a while back and I totally didn’t take the hint that she wanted me to make it for her. She’d probably forgive me if I made her this version cuz it has Reese’s in it! Oh boy, this is over the top awesome!

  3. I love eclair cake! I was just thinking the other day about switching up the ingredients to make a different version, thanks for doing all the work for me 😛 I can’t wait to try this!

  4. How fun is this cake!? I love Eclairs. It’s my go-to dessert when I am out and about, I think because it reminds me of Boston cream donuts!

  5. It’s funny although I am not a huge peanut butter fan, I am a fan of resses pb cups and go weak at the knees when I see them!! LOL weird, I know. This eclair cake looks fabulous!!

  6. You know that I love every single thing about this cake! I’m sitting here drooling at how good I know this must have been! And that chocolate sounds fabulous…I will have to keep an eye out for it!

  7. Just by looking at the pics, would have never guessed this was nobake! Amazing! And that there’s PB cups stuffed in…oh yeah 🙂

  8. This is fabulous Aimee! I almost made an eclair cake with the peanut butter poptarts, but did the bars instead. That would have been too funny!

  9. Wow, I can’t believe a no bake can look that decadent! Gorgeous and so creamy!

  10. I have never had an eclair cake, which is weird because I love eclairs and cake! Must get one into my life.

  11. Holly scraps this looks mighty delicious, but then again, everything you do does 🙂 I wish I could just dig in.

  12. Eclairs have been one of my favorite things since I was a kid. Something about that rich and creamy filling with that chocolate glaze. Yours look SO delicious, and I can never resist peanut butter!

  13. Wow…. this looks amazing! I love no-bake desserts in the summer time. Keeps the heat out of the house. I can go for a slice or two here… YUM!

  14. I can’t believe how delicious this looks. I am not one for eclairs but I would be more than happy to try this!

  15. This looks pretty ridiculous. And that frosting looks silky and beautiful. Can’t wait to try it.

  16. I had something like this today at a luncheon at church minus the peanut butter. Oh how I bet this is so much better adding it!

    1. The peanut butter is a nice addition! I do make a classic version as well (maybe more like what you had today). Both are awesome!!!
