Ingredients

For the peanut butter cream

  • 6 Tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 Cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 Cup marshmallow fluff

For the stacks

  • 1 package chocolate pound cake, such as Sara Lee Double Chocolate Pound Cake Slices
  • 1/4 Cup salted dry roasted peanuts, coarsely chopped

Directions

For the peanut butter cream

Cream together the butter and peanut butter. Gently fold in marshmallow fluff. Fill piping bag fitted with a #22 tip with peanut butter cream.

For the stacks

Use cookie cutters (or any other round things you can find) to cut three sizes of circles from your pound cake slices.

Starting with the largest layer on the bottom, pipe a layer of peanut butter cream and sprinkle with chopped dry roasted peanuts.  Add the medium sized pound cake circle, pipe and sprinkle. Repeat with the smallest pound cake circle and top your pound cake stack with another piped dollop of peanut butter cream and peanuts.

Chocolate Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Chocolate Cooking Tip

When melting chocolate, use a double boiler and stir occasionally to avoid scorching chocolate at the bottom of the bowl.

Chocolate Wine Pairing

Sweet chenin blanc, muscat, or amontillado sherry with nut-based desserts; sauternes or sweet German wines with pound cake, cheesecake, and other mildly sweet desserts; sweet chenin blanc or muscat or Alsatian vendange tardive (late harvest) wines with sweeter desserts; sweet chenin blanc or muscat or Alsatian vendange tardive (late harvest) wines, port, madeira, late-harvest zinfandel, or cabernet sauvignon or cabernet franc with chocolate desserts.
