    swissms's Note:

    The perfect cake for peanut butter lovers. Three layers of moist peanut butter cake separated with a peanut butter cup filling and then covered with a chocolate ganache. If you really enjoy frosting, you may want to double the peanut butter cup filling to create a thicker layer of filling between the layers. If you prefer, you can use semi-sweet chocolate for the ganache. When I made this I only had 1/2 cup of cream remaining so I did not have enough ganache to frost the entire cake. Since I only made a half recipe of the ganache, I poured it over the top of the cake so it would run down the sides.
