Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used this filling for cupcakes. I modified the recipe by using creamy peanut butter instead of chunky and added water for a thinner consistency. The chocolate cupcakes with the peanut butter filling and fudge frosting were a big hit! I would definitely make them again. I also made the cupcakes completely dairy-free because of someone with allergies and it worked out great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best recepie by far. I love making chocolates and even more, giving them away. I don't eat a lot of chocolate, but when I make this filling in my chocolate cups I always have to double the ammount I am amking because I eat more than I give away. The filling is easy to make and easy to use. It really tastes like Reece Peanut Butter Cups. SO easy to make and use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use this recipe for making large candy bars with Pb filling and small chocolates with Pb filling. It's very yummy. I usually use the creamy peanut butter though. I like the smoother consistency. You can also thin it with milk, cream or water for a cupcake or cake filling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and easy. The hardest part is waiting for the pb filling to cool. I like making pb cups using the silicone cupcake containers. They are stronger than using the cupcake papers, so they don't get distorted when you move them around.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I ended up added milk to this recipe to make it a spreadable filling for a chocolate layer cake. Turned out well. If you're concerned about using milk, I'm sure water would substitute well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I put this filling in the middle of a dark chocolate cake. It was easy to make and my boyfriend said it tasted like Reeses peanut butter. It was a big hit!! I had some left over and he ate it with a spoon out of the bowl!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This filling is REALLY GOOD! It is very tasty. I think it is really good for candy however I tried using it for cake but it is way too thick for that. I would NOT recommend using this as a cake filling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe is amazing. I used creamy Honey flavored PB and did use a small amount of milk to thin, but this made some of the most delicious PB cups with milk chocolate Melts.
