Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    For best success with this recipe, be sure to use a 15x10-inch pan with at least a 1-inch rim so there is less risk of cake batter spilling over while baking.
  • tip 2
    The unwrapped minis are perfect for topping the cake, but if you can’t find them, the wrapped miniature peanut butter cups will also work. Just be sure to cut them in half before topping.
