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.
