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
