Inside Out Peanut Butter Cup

Pin It! 
 

If you like peanut butter cups, you're going to love this dessert. I took the main concept of a peanut butter cup and flipped it inside out! The crust is made with peanut butter and the filling is a rich chocolate fudge. To add that special touch, I topped it off with a chocolate and peanut butter frosting.
