Reese’s Is Making Snack Cakes That Are PACKED with Peanut Butter and Chocolate

Move over, peanut butter cups—these new Reese's snack cakes are what we're reaching for when the craving strikes.

We’re working at home. Three square meals have gone out the window. It’s no longer a big deal to eat breakfast for dinner.

That must mean it’s also fine to eat dessert for breakfast, right? If you count yourself among the dessert for breakfast crew, you’re going to love the new Reese’s Snack Cakes designed for curbing those mid-morning munchies. Yup, you heard that right—Reese’s. Snack. Cakes.

What Are Reese’s Snack Cakes Like?

Reese’s has brought us all sorts of treats over the years, from coffee creamer to giant peanut butter cups, so of course, these new snack cakes combine peanut butter and chocolate. They’re Reese’s, after all! But they’re not exactly peanut butter cups or Reese’s cupcakes either. These little cakes come in two layers, chocolate cake on the bottom and thick peanut butter cream on the top. Then, they get covered in even more chocolate.

You’re Going to Have to Wait to Try Them

We can’t wait to get our hands on these new snack cakes ASAP, but, unfortunately, they won’t be hitting shelves until December. With the way 2020 has been going so far, that’s going to be sooner than you might think. Keep your eyes peeled because they should be at convenience stores nationwide by the end of the year, and who knows? They may show up in your stocking this holiday season.

In the meantime, try making your own sweets inspired by those beloved peanut butter cups. You could bake a Reese’s snack cake of your own or even make your own homemade peanut butter cups.
