Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake Tutorial & Recipe Below
When I make a cake like this, I LOVE using my two, 10-inch cake pans.
While the cakes are cooling, it’s a great time to mix up the frosting, and chill it in the fridge if you like.
Yes, I took a bite of the frosting straight off of the spoon, before we smeared it on.
Cream Cheese Peanut Butter Frosting
After spreading the frosting on the bottom cake, top it with the other and spread that frosting on the top as thick as you like. (Don’t go too crazy with the frosting for the middle part. The frosting can be a bit “slippery,” and we don’t want this precious thing slipping in to the floor.)
The toffee pieces are my kryptonite. Sprinkle the remaining half on the top and press on to the sides of the cake, to cover the middle layer of frosting.
Yep. It just drizzles on so heavenly like that. I bought the Smucker’s salted caramel ice cream topping, but any will do!
P.S. If you love caramel, you’ll love these caramel cupcakes with caramel buttercream frosting!
That caramel and how it drips down the chocolate cake makes us swoon! Much like these delicious turtle cookies that are easy to make!
The BEST Chocolate Cake Recipe
You know, I don’t know if I can just have a plain chocolate cake anymore. The extras made this over the top for me! Now, don’t get me wrong… this depression cake is a game-changer for a regular chocolate cake recipe!
It only lasted (and keep in mind how huge this thing is) 12 hours. With giving only a quarter of it to our neighbors and a couple of slices to our babysitter… we took care of the rest. It was incredible and will now be a favorite in our house for sure!
