Layers of chocolate and peanut butter make this definitely the Best Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake I have had so far.
Yesterday I had the opportunity to share this amazing cake on the Better Homes & Garden blog. I am participating in their “Month of Chocolate” recipes, so be prepared for some great chocolate recipes this month.
Whenever we go out to eat, I love to check out the dessert menu. It doesn’t matter if we have been to that restaurant a thousand times before…I am still going to sit and drool over the desserts. It’s like I have a thing for desserts or something.
Now some times we leave room for dessert, and sometimes we walk away. Mainly because I either ate way too much dinner, or there is some crazy dessert already waiting in our kitchen at home.
But then sometimes we say no to dessert because we can’t justify the price. Who wants to pay $9 for a slice of cake? Especially when I know that I can bake an entire cake for that price.
A few weeks ago BHG asked me to guest post for the “Month of Chocolate” on the Delish Dish blog. Well, let’s just think about it…heck yes!!!
I do love a good chocolate recipe, so I was so excited to search through the archives and find some delicious chocolate recipes to give the BruCrew twist to.
As soon as I saw a cake called the Best-Ever Chocolate Cake, I knew that was the first one I was going to check out. Not that I doubted it was good, but I was very curious to see if it would live up to my particular sweet tooth expectations. I’ll admit that I have become a very picky dessert eater in the last few years.
It was so fun to look at the recipe and see what little tweaks and changes I would make based on how I like to bake. I have to admit…this was seriously one of the best homemade chocolate cakes I have ever tried. In fact, it was so good that it is hands down my new go-to recipe for chocolate cake.
And of course you cannot go wrong with covering this best chocolate cake in honey peanut butter frosting and then putting Reese’s Peanut Butter cups on the top and sides. So if you are looking for an impressive dessert to make this month for a special Valentine’s dinner, this is your cake. It looks like a lot of work, but it really is very easy to put together.
The best part is that you will getting the entire best chocolate peanut butter cake for the price of one cake slice. I’d say that is winning at dessert!
