Oh boy, this cake is a dream. I made it for my sweet Mom’s birthday while they were visiting this week…..and it’s safe to say we liked it 🙂
You’ll find eggless peanut butter cookie dough layered between 2 homemade chocolate cakes topped with my double chocolate frosting. Find a special occasion to make this cake ASAP!
Bake your cakes and let them cool.
While your cakes are cooling, make the peanut butter cookie dough layer. Start with some flour!
Add your peanut butter, butter, sugars, vanilla and milk.
Let’s start the frosting shall we?
You gotta try a lick.
Place your cooled cake onto your cake stand, top with a nice thick layer of peanut butter cookie dough and top with second cake.
Frost all sides of this baby!
Unwrap 20 or so of these little bites and top them on the center of your cake if desired.
