    Irish Rose's Note:

    The Tastykake brand of snack cakes and pies has been associated with Philadelphia, PA since the early 1900's. In the late 70's, the name was changed to Kandy Kakes. As a child living in West Virginia, we could not get these goodies (we had Moon Pies and Little Debbies)so my Jersey relatives would ship boxes of them to us. My favorite was the peanut butter Tandy Takes. The following recipe is a close facsimile.

      This was awesome. I followed the recipe exactly, except I used semi-sweet chocolate chips for the coating. I wish I would have used milk chocolate chips instead because it wasn't the flavor that I was looking for, but it was my own dumb fault for not reading the recipe correctly. I also spread the peanut butter on the cake while it was hot then I refrigerated for 3 hours and finally, I melted the chocolate and spread it on top. I covered it and put it back in the fridge until 2 hours before serving and it softened enough to cut but it was still hard enough for a nice crunch. I think if I would have used the milk chocolate, it would have tasted identical to the original Tandy Takes. That is very impressive considering this is a "from scratch" recipe. Even with the semi-sweet chocolate, everyone that ate it RAVED about it. I will definitely be making this one again!

      if you melt the chocolate in the microwave then add the peanut butter to the chocolate, (you can add as much PB as you want, stir, then you wouldn't have to spread them separately

      Very yummy and very easy to make! Like a few others, I also just used a bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips and they worked out fine. As far as the peanut butter, I just plopped spoonfuls on the hot cake and allowed them to melt a bit. It spread out just fine. No problems. I did bake the cake a little longer - I think it ended up being about 25 minutes or so. Did the toothpick test and it was truly delicious! Brought it to work for my co-workers birthday. Thanks for posting!
