Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake Drizzle

Well I figured that Santa might be tired of cookies, so this year, I made him a cake.
Not just any cake though.
I made him his favorite cake.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Drizzle!
How do I know it's his favorite, you wonder? Well after tasting it, it becomes everyone's favorite.
After reading this recipe you may say to yourself - that's alot of peanut butter, butter, and heavy cream; but you know what I say? It's the holiday season and those healthy active resolutions don't need to start until next year. Go ahead make it, then have a slice or two - I won't tell ; )
Preheat Oven to 325
Grease and flour two 9 in. round cake pans.
Combine 1/2 c peanut butter and 1/2 c butter - Cream until light and fluffy.
Add 4 eggs one at a time, mixing well after each one.
Add Duncan Hines Butter Golden Cake mix [1 box] alternately with 2/3 c water - Stir until just combined.
Pour batter into prepared pans and bake for 25 minutes.
Allow cakes to cool in pans for 10 minutes, then turn onto a cooling rack to cool completely. 
Assemble and frost once cool.
Frosting:
Combine 1 cup peanut butter and 1/2 cup butter - Cream until light and fluffy .
Add 4 cups of powdered sugar, then mix in about 2/3 cup heavy cream to make the frosting of a spreading consistency.
Throw on some melted chocolate and chocolate chips, and you're good to go : )

Warning: Your hands will be disugusting after measuring about all the peanut butter, but hey someone's gotta do the dirty work.




What treats did you leave for Santa this year?!
I hope everyone has a lovely holiday <3
xoxo
