Chocolate Peanut Butter Salted Caramel Toffee Cake

It all started with a craving. I kid you not.  I looked at my friend Kate and said, “I want need, chocolate, and a little peanut butter wouldn’t hurt either.”

So we headed to the pantry, and the words “cake,” “toffee,” “salted caramel,” and cream cheese quickly followed.  The experiment was on, and a cake was in the works in the kitchen.
(Kate is my good buddy who loves food as much as I do. When we get together, you can count on recipe creations and 90% of the conversation to revolve around food.)

If I were told I could have one last dessert, it would be the caramel fudge pecan cake at Pasta House. (It’s a franchise Italian restaurant that we have here in the midwest.) So keeping $4.99/slice of cake in mind, I wanted to see if we could create something similar for when the craving rears it’s ugly head, hoping I could save a whoppin’ $4.99/slice. I’d like to say that although it’s not the same, (because we added peanut butter) it will sure conquer that sweet-tooth craving that I have.

When I make a cake like this, I LOVE using my two, 10-inch cake pans.  They make large round cakes that look stupendous on my Martha Stewart Cake Stand!

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.)

Toffee Bits

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.

Salted Caramel

Yep. It just drizzles on so heavenly like that.  I bought the Smucker’s salted caramel ice cream topping, but any will do!

    This looks AMAZING! Hits all of my granddaughter’s favorites in one cake. Fabulous. I’m confused though…does both the peanut butter AND the butter go into the frosting? Both are listed in the ingredients but then the p-butter disappears. Did you mean butter(s) plural in the frosting mixology? Thanks. Can’t wait to make this.

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi Miriam! I’m so glad that you asked! YES! The peanut butter goes in to the frosting as well as the butter! So sorry about that. I’ve updated the recipe! I hope your granddaughter enjoys it!

  2. Mari says:

    Hi! Is there something we can use other than cream cheese for the topping? Thank you!

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi Mari! Although I’ve never used anything other than cream cheese, you may be able to try a store bought frosting? I’m sure that would taste pretty good! 🙂 I hope that helps!

      1. Mari says:

        Thanks! I thought that, too, but wondered if it would be way too sweet- maybe take out the powdered sugar?? My family are not cream-cheese lovers… 😊

        1. Jessica says:

          Oooh, that’s a really good thought! Yes, I’d take out the powdered sugar if you try that! I have a few non-cream cheese fans in my extended family, so I know exactly how that is! 🙂 I hope it turns out great!!!
