Why you ask? Why would I go so far as to turn an innocent Chocolate cake into an inside out Reese’s Peanut Butter Cake? Good question…and I don’t know..lol! I finally mastered the exact duplicate and EPIC Peanut Butter flavor that by the grace of God, fills those amazing Reese’s PB Cups and I really just wanted to put it to good use! LOTS of good use!
~Right here >> COPYCAT REESE’S PEANUT BUTTER!
Like “smother an entire Chocolate cake with it and then some”… ‘good use’!
This cake is seriously one of the VERY best cakes I’ve ever had! And it couldn’t be any easier! You will totally feel like you’re sinking your lips into a warm, sweet, heavenly cloud of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups in cake form! You have to try this…if for no other reason than to get a spoon and just eat the frosting…it’s life changing! 🙂
What you’ll need (this recipe will make TWO cakes like the one shown here. You can stack them and make a layer cake, or just have 2 cakes:
TWO 8″ pie pans..ROUND! Sprayed with non-stick spray.
An electric hand mixer..very helpful!
1 box of Chocolate cake mix…your fave
1-1lb jar of Creamy Peanut Butter
1-1/2 cups Powdered Sugar
a generous ‘pinch’ of IODIZED salt…yes, it HAS to be IODIZED!
Bake up your cake into whatever size you like according to YOUR box instructions!
If you want to use up all of this Reese’s Frosting, I suggest baking the entire box into whatever shape cake/cakes you like, or 2-8″ round cakes!
While the cake is in the oven~ make the Copycat Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup ‘Frosting’ :
In a large bowl, mix the Peanut Butter, Powdered Sugar and Salt on medium speed until light in color and fluffy…
About 3-4 minutes at medium speed, worked for me!
If you want to store any leftover Frosting, keep it in a jar inside the fridge 🙂
Take the Cake out and let it cool…
Now..Frost it with that amazing Reese’s Frosting…
Slice into that inside out Reese’s Peanut Butter Cake…
Take that Oh-SOoo dreamy bite! ~Enjoy! 🙂
