I made these for a going away party for one of my best friends last night. Kind of a bitter-sweet night. We had so much fun but it's never easy saying goodbye.
This is a Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake with a Peanut Butter Buttercream Frosting (say that 5 times fast), topped with a Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch. If I had had the time, I would have bought the new Reese's Minis and topped it with that. But I didn't and I had Cap'n Crunch in my pantry! Someone made the comment at the party that you know that if it has Cap'n Crunch on it, it's good. I liked hearing that.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake:
1 Devil's Food Cake Mix
Ingredients on box
1/2 - 1 cup Peanut Butter, depending on how much you like.
I used 1/2 cup and thought it was perfect. I wanted the chocolate to still be the main flavor.
Bake according to directions on box.
Peanut Butter Buttercream Frosting:
1/2 cup (1 stick) of butter, room temperature
2 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 - 1 cup of creamy Peanut Butter (again, you decide how much you like)
4 cups Powdered Sugar
2 Tbsp Milk, if you need to make it a little thinner. I actually like the consistency that it was. Perfect for piping.
