Classics exist for a reason right? And in my soul peanut butter is just better paired with chocolate.

   To be honest, everything is better when paired with chocolate in my opinion:)

   These cakes are a perfect little treat and you can make them two ways! Bake them all the way through and they will have a soft scoop of peanut butter in the middle that partly been absorbed in the bottom of the cake making in extra deliciously nutty or you can bake them briefly and the filling will just ooze out when cutting through sort of like peanut butter lava cakes!

   The world is your oyster and just you will decide how you like your peanut butter filling!
