Amazing Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake

It’s no secret, I love chocolate. And, since yesterday was Valentine’s Day, I had an excuse to make some sweets for all my sweeties.

Thanks to Pinterest, I happened across this recipe. It sounded amazing, and I decided I would change things up a bit and make the recipe my own.

Here’s my version:

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake

 Cake Ingredients: Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake
1 Box Chocolate Cake Mix. {I used Devil’s Food Cake}
2 Pints Mayfield Peanut Butter Fudge Ice Cream
2 Tablespoons Milk

Topping Ingredients:
1 16 ounce Can of Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup
1/4 cup Reese’s peanut butter

Preheat oven to temperature recommended on the cake mix box. Mix together the cake mix, the ice cream, and the milk. Stir until moist. {My batter was quite thick and lumpy.} Spread into a greased and floured 9×13 pan {or any size pan you prefer}, and bake according to the directions on the cake mix box. {Remember – you don’t need the oil, egg, or anything else. Just the ingredients listed above.}

When the cake is finished baking, and a toothpick comes out clean, allow the cake to cool for 20 minutes. Pour the entire can of Hershey’s syrup over the top of the cake. Melt the peanut butter in the microwave, and drizzle it over the top of the cake. With a knife, swirl the peanut butter and chocolate topping together.

This was a HUGE hit with my kids and my husband last night, and it was so easy!

I think I’ve found my new dessert to take to church dinners. 🙂
