Sometimes, you, my readers have the best ideas! Last month I shared a Strawberry Eclair Cake recipe. Which is basically a twist on the traditional Eclair Cake.

One of you suggested I make a peanut butter version. And I’m so glad you did! I used chocolate graham crackers instead of original honey, which gave a delicious chocolate twist to the cake!

I also added peanut butter to the pudding filling. Oh, and some whole Reese’s Peanut Butter cups. I made a homemade chocolate frosting, but if canned frosting is your thing, go for it! I also scaled this recipe down to a 9inch baking dish instead of a 13×9. It’s quite rich, so you don’t need as large a slice!!

One bite of these and you will be so glad you tried this version! Be sure you let this cake sit in the fridge for at least 4 hours (or overnight) to help soften the crackers! It’s an important step, k?

Speaking of the homemade frosting, I used one of my new favorite discoveries! TCHO Chocolate. I used their 99% unsweetened chocolate critters. They are so adorable too. But, word of warning, don’t let their cuteness be mistaken as a good snack. They are unsweetened. So unless you like to snack on unsweet chocolate, (NOT ME) don’t pop them in your mouth.

However, please please please use these for making delicious smooth and creamy frosting! I’m delighted in how smooth this chocolate melts. As some of you many know, chocolate can be difficult, temperamental product. And you want a good quality chocolate filled with rich creamy flavor, but also a product that melts perfectly. EVERY TIME. So far, TCHO Chocolate has been that perfect product!

TCHO provided me some samples, and I can’t wait to purchase this chocolate on a regular basis. I’ve already used the other samples (dark chocolate and milk chocolate) in upcoming recipes! So stay tuned!!

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat vanilla pudding mix with milk, until there are no lumps. Beat in peanut butter until smooth. Fold in the Cool Whip, set aside.
  2. In a 9inch square baking dish, layer 6 grahams. Top with half of the pudding mix. Top with 6 more crackers and the 16 Reese's PB cups. Top with the remaining of the pudding mix. Finish by topping with the remaining 6 graham crackers.

  1. I am going to try making the peanut butter no bake cake and cookies they look delicious and mouth watering. Thanks for uploading the recipes. If they don’t turn out right i will have fun with the kids making them.

  2. This turned out deliciously! I made two batches yesterday morning, one for a party in the afternoon and another for a party today. Thanks for a delicious (and easy) recipe! I’m now subscribed to your feed for more where this came from. Cheers!

  4. Oh My Goodness…eclairs, no bake, and peanut butter cups all in one. This is soon to be a family favorite I just know it

  5. Planning on making this tomorrow!! My hubby LOVES Reese’s 🙂 Question, are you using bite sized resees or the normal, larger sized ones?

    1. I used regular sized in the recipe. The minis were just decoration. Sorry for the confusion!! However, you could use whichever you have on hand 🙂

  6. Would you just double the ingredients to make a larger version? I have an office full of guinea pigs that I frequently experiment on, and I know this 9×9 version will not get around far enough to satisfy all 14 of them. I can’t wait to see their faces when I bring it in. Thanks. 🙂

  7. YEAH it’s too hot to turn on my oven, and YEAH I want to make this immediately! So glad you have the TCHO love. I’ve enjoyed their chocolate for years, and this post reminded me I need to pick up some more!
