This recipe was hard to keep away from you. We’re super excited to share today’s recipe with you.

I (Michelle) was a huge Reese’s Pieces fan growing up. And I have always wanted to create more fun ways to enjoy the classic flavors of peanut butter and chocolate together. Our family loves this flavor combo. They were the inspiration for this dessert.  Ever since making our 4 ingredient peanut butter cookies (they can be enjoyed unbaked) and our peanut butter fudge we wanted to create something phenomenal with those two recipes. Enter: Reese’s Pieces inspired fudge cake.

I avoided peanuts for a long time due to health and digestive issues. But I am happy to say so far my skin and body are handling peanuts without a problem. I don’t have them everyday, so the days I have some I really make it count. I am grateful for my healing journey because it allowed me to be able to enjoy peanuts again. This cake was everything I dreamed of and more.  I hope you like it.

The ultimate grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free reese’s pieces protein peanut butter fudge cake.

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: one 6 inch cake 1x



Bottom layer

chocolate mousse layer (middle layer)

  • one can of coconut cream (the thick cream part from canned coconut milk, 7 1/2oz)
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder (1oz)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup ( 1 1/2oz)
  • 1 tablespoons gelatin from the red can (this is optional)
  • **If you want to make this layer with stevia- add a few drops of stevia and add in 2 tablespoons of coconut milk)

peanut butter fudge layer (top layer)

chocolate drizzle

  • 23 tablespoons of coconut oil, liquid
  • few drops of stevia
  • 34 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • ** can add crushed peanuts on top


First make the 4 ingredient peanut butter cookies.

  1. But instead of baking them, leave them unbaked.
  2. Once cookie batter is made pour batter into a 6 inch pan.
  3. Set in refrigerator to set while you make the chocolate mousse layer.

Chocolate cream

  1. In a large bowl place the chilled coconut cream (from canned coconut milk, you just want the thick cream part) next add in maple syrup, cocoa powder and gelatin (if adding it). The gelatin helps provide lightness to the mousse.
  2. Pull pan out of fridge and top bottom layer with chocolate mousse layer.
  3. Set back in the fridge while you make the fudge top layer.

Make one recipe of our peanut butter fudge

  1. Once fudge is ready remove 6 inch pan from fridge and pour fudge layer on top.
  2. Place back in the refrigerator to set for a few hours.
  3. Remove and slice into slices.
  4. Top with chocolate drizzle and more crushed peanuts.
  5. Make chocolate drizzle by adding all ingredients into a bowl and stirring together.


  • Serving Size: 6-8 slices

Wow, talk about incredible! This dessert looks amazing!! I just made a vegan peanut butter pie for my husband’s birthday. But I didn’t actually tell him it was vegan! (Shh, he still doesn’t know and has been eating it for two days!) 😀

Looks great, but I am curious, is it possible to make it without coconut? I am allergic to coconut so I can’t use it at all, and am curious how I could make it and still have it healthy without it.

purelytwins June 28, 2015 - 12:11 am

There really isn’t anything to sub the coconut with. The only thing that might work is cashews.

Jessica July 5, 2017 - 2:46 pm

Is there a sub for maple syrup?

purelytwins July 9, 2017 - 1:08 pm

You can use honey or coconut nectar.
