“I've made this several times, and have always had rave reviews! My teaching partner, a Reese's nut, loves this, and requests it as a b-day cake! It came from the 5/25/04 issue of Woman's Day. It's beautiful, easy, and rich-tasting, and it looks like I cut thin layers of cake, and painstakingly layered 6 layers with the peanut butter cream! LOL Enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat 2/3 cup cream in a large microwavable bowl until steaming.
  2. Add chips; whisk until smooth; slowly whisk in remaining cream; chill 15 minutes.
  3. Beat the chilled cream just until soft peaks form.
  4. Arrange 3 graham crackers, side by side, long sides touching, on a serving plate (looks nice on a rectangular plate, if you have one).
  5. Spread crackers evenly with 1/2 cup cream mixture.
  6. Repeat for 4 more layers, then add 1 more layer of crackers only.
  7. Chill layers (and leftover whipped cream) for 1 hour.
  8. Spread top and sides of "cake" with remaining whipped cream "frosting."
  9. Chill 4 hours, or up to 2 days.
  10. Decorate cake with more pb chips, if desired.
  11. Slice with a serrated knife, using a sawing motion.
