Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake

Sweet Treat Saturday

A great cake for Spring or anytime for a chocolate-peanut butter lover.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake
Tip: Don’t use reduced-fat or generic brands of peanut butter for this recipe…
  • 1 package devil’s food cake mix
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 cup whipped topping
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips

Prepare and bake cake mix according to package directions in a greased and floured 10 inch fluted tube pan. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.

In a small bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Beat in the peanut butter and confectioner’s sugar until smooth. Fold in the whipped topping.

Split cake in half horizontally; place bottom layer on a serving plate. Spread with the peanut butter mixture. Top with remaining cake. Refrigerate until chilled.

In a small heavy saucepan, bring cream to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Stir in chocolate chips; cook and stir until chocolate is melted. Refrigerate until spreadable. Frost top and sides of cake. Refrigerate until serving.
