To make peanut butter cream filling:


  • 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar (sifted)
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp whole milk
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract




  • In a medium bowl, use a hand mixer to beat the butter with the confectioners’ sugar at medium speed for about 2 mins, or until the mixture is light.


  • Beat in the 1/2 cup of the peanut butter into the mixture, then mix in the milk and the vanilla.

To make ganache:

-In a medium bowl, combine the chocolate (chopped/morsels), butter, corn syrup, and salt.

-In a small sauce pan, pour in the cream and bring it to a simmer on the stove, then pour over chocolate mixture and whisk until cool.

Assembling the Swiss Rolls:

-Line another large baking sheet with parchment paper and grease with baking spray. Take the cooled cake and invert it onto the prepared sheet.

-Peel the parchment paper off of the cake, and cut the cake into 4 equal rectangles/squares. Spread the peanut butter filling on the cake pieces, leaving about a 1/4 inch boarder.

-Roll up the cakes length wise to form 4 longs, then place in refrigerator for 1 hour.

-After the rolls have been refrigerated, cut the logs into thirds with a sharp knife.

-Dip the individual rolls into the Ganache using a fork or a spoon.

-Place the covered rolls onto another greased pan or pan lined with parchment paper, and let freeze for about an hour until ready to serve.
