We are a REESE’S loving family. It’s definitely my son’s candy of choice. When I was working on this recipe, he was stealing them off the countertop. I’m pretty sure he has a stash of REESE’S Miniatures now, or most likely a pile of wrappers, hidden somewhere. Several months ago I created this recipe for REESE’S Peanut Butter Mousse. Shortly after I created that recipe, I realized it would be great filling for a cake or even a pie. I hadn’t been able to get that idea out of my head, and when I heard about the REESE’S Snack Talk Challenge it inspired me to make my recipe a reality with this REESE’S Torte.
I love that this recipe is so easy to put together, and it’s loaded with REESE’S flavor. The filling is a creamy blend of fresh whipped cream, pudding, and REESE’S Spreads, coated in a chocolate ganache, and garnished with large chunks of REESE’S Miniatures. It will be a quick favorite of any REESE’S fan.
