Im not afraid to admit that I think chocolate and peanut butter are one of the most iconic flavor pairings not to mention one of my personal favorites. And Im proud to say that the apple hasnt fallen far from the tree when it comes to that particular love. Jack is just about as passionate about the flavor combo as I am. In fact, hes requested a chocolate peanut butter birthday cake for two years running now. And Im happy to oblige.

Directions

MAKING:

1. Prepare the cake according to the package directions. Allow to cool 25 to 30 minutes in the pan.

2. Use the stick end of a wooden spoon to poke holes in the cake. In a medium bowl, whisk together the pudding mix and the Reese's creamer to make the chocolate peanut butter sauce. Allow the mixture to thicken for about 10 minutes, then pour over the cake and into the holes. *The mixture will not thicken completely to pudding consistency.

3. In a large bowl, whisk the peanut butter into the thawed whipped topping. Spread the frosting over the cake. Sprinkle the peanut butter cups evenly over the frosting. Cover and keep refrigerated.

SERVING:

4. Serve and enjoy!
