How to Make Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake

Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake preparing instructions.

The cake starts with moist, delicious layers of chocolate cake. For this occasion, I used a shortcut and make the cake layers from boxed cake mix. However, the star of this cake is the filling and topping.

Make the cake according to a package direction, bake in two 8 inches round cake pans and cool. Then trim the top of each cake to make a flat surface.

Next, make the filling. For a no-bake peanut butter cheesecake, beat softened cream cheese, peanut butter and sugar, then fold in whipped cream. Reserve 2 and ½ cups filling to cover the cake. In remaining filling add melted gelatin and mix to combine.

To assemble the cake, you will need cake collar or a ring from springform pan. Place a cake layer on a serving plate and then lock the ring or a collar around the cake. Spread a thin layer of peanut butter cheesecake filling and top with mini Reese’s cups, then cover with remaining filling.  Cover with second cake layer. Refrigerate until firm, then cover the cake with peanut butter filling. Top with milk chocolate ganache and chocolate peanut butter cups and Reese’s pieces, every peanut butter and chocolate lovers favorites.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake garnished with Reese's cups and Reese's Pieces.

Ingredients

Chocolate Cake Layers:

  • 1 (15.25oz.) box super moist chocolate fudge cake mix
  • ingredients listed on the box (3 eggs, oil, water)

Cheesecake filling:

  • 1 ½ cups heavy whipping cream
  • 6 Tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 12 oz. brick style cream cheese-room temperature
  • 1 ½ cups peanut butter
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons gelatin
  • 2 Tablespoons cold water
  • 78 oz. mini chocolate peanut butter cups

Milk Chocolate Ganache:

  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 4 oz. milk chocolate-finely chopped
  • 2 oz. semi-sweet baking chocolate-finely chopped

Garnish:

  • 4 Reese’s-cut in half
  • 1/3 cup Reese’s pieces

Instructions

To make the cake:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease two 8-inches round cake pans and line the bottom with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare the cake mix following the instructions on the box. Divide batter evenly in prepared pans and bake 30 to 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  3. Cool 10 minutes in the pans, then remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  4. Trim the top of each cake to make flat surface. Place one cake layer on a serving plate and place the ring from springform pan around the cake, set aside.

To make the filling:

  1. In a bowl mix heavy cream until soft peaks form, then add vanilla and 6 Tablespoons powdered sugar and mix until firm peaks form.
  2. Dissolve 2 teaspoons gelatin in 2 Tablespoons cold water and set aside for a few minutes to bloom, then melt over low heat until gelatin is completely melted and smooth.
  3. In a large mixing bowl beat cream cheese and peanut butter until it’s smooth. Gradually mix in powdered sugar. The mixture will become thick and dry. So after you added about ¾ cup of powdered sugar, add half ow whipped cream and mix, then add remaining ¾ cup of powdered sugar and whipped cream.
  4. Reserve about 2 ½ cups of peanut butter cream cheese mixture to cover the cake and pipe the swirls on top. Cover and place in the fridge. When ready to decorate the, remove from the fridge and leave 30 minutes at room temperature.
