“I have not tried this recipe. I got it from Copy Kat Chat. Recipe by Chef Jeff DeJong / Holiday Inn. The recipe calls for 1 bag each Reeses regular and mini peanut butter cups. There is 2 18oz cake mixes listed in this recipe but the recipe only reads as needing 1/2 layer cake. The recipe also says to break up 1 bag of reese cups.”

  • 18 14 ounces white cake mix (white or chocolate can be used white is suggested)
  • 1 14 cups water

  • Hersheys Chocolate Syrup (squeezable bottle)
  • 16 ounces reeses miniature peanut butter cups


  1. Directions:
  2. Bake a white cake in a round cake pan. Let cool (refrigerating cakes will make it easier to frost). Take out of pan.
  3. Put all frosting ingredients in mixing bowl, beat until smooth. Frost the sides of cake with the peanut butter frosting.
