Dorie suggests a variety of vessels you can use to make these cakes. I chose to make mine in mini-muffin tins. I got a total of 17 mini-muffins and I baked them approximately 12 minutes. The ganache was plenty for 17 but not the toppings. I ran out of peanuts and chopped chocolate after about a dozen.
The reviews on these little cakes were mixed. My guest eater was surprised that they were crumbly. I think he was thinking they were going to be muffins and not cakes. My husband said they were not sweet enough. I did use quite a dark chocolate so maybe that contributed to less sweetness. I am a self professed chocoholic and I thought they were great. Chocolate and peanut butter is my favorite combination.

They look adorable as mini cupcakes. I like my chocolate on the dark, bittersweet side so I thought these were very good.
i liked these, too. they reminded me of a cakey brownie, rather than a true cake. they are cute as mini muffins!
Chocolate and peanut butter always work for me too! Love the little cupcakes!!!
Lovely little cupcakes! I used dark chocolate too and we love it. I like the addition of peanut butter to this one, even though I am not a fan of peanut butter on breads!
I thought these were great too. Your little cakes are very sweet.
