Sweet on Trader Joe's Saturday: Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Filled Cupcakes

trader joe's dark chocolate peanut butter filled cupcakes review
In honor of Valentine's Day, we knew we had to bring you a chocolate review. Alas, we could not find anything heart-shaped and chocolate in Trader Joe's
[Note to Trader Joe's: if there were something heart-shaped and chocolate, we would totally buy it.]

Today's review is of Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Filled Cupcakes.

You'll find these in the baked goods section of TJ's. Four to a package, you'll pay $3.99 for them. The package description reads, "chocolate cupcakes filled with peanut butter and topped with a decadent ganache icing."

A mom's (my) take: Like a peanut butter cup in cupcake form with a lovely, moist chocolate cake to go with it. I've seen these on some "top 10 Trader Joe's desserts" lists. Now I know why.
Overall rating 5 of 5 stars

A teenager's (kiddo's) take: First, the incredibly rich ganache hits your taste buds like a train, only to be complemented and made less formidable by the light and airy cake; which, I might add, has a great taste. Then comes the peanut butter- but wait! The little spot on the top is a false alarm. The real reservoir of peanut butter isn't connected to it, which adds to the flavorful suspense this phenomenal cupcake gives you. All in all, a quality buy. :)
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars

  2. The cupcakes look delicious in the photos, but your son's perspective is the reason why I'll be purchasing them during my next trip to the Trader Joe's. Happy Monday :)
