This is a super simple recipe based on my love for TastyKake Kandy Cakes....and everyone who tries it absolutely loves it!!! My husband, who doesn't like cake, loves it and a woman I work with specifically asked me to make one for a bake sale at work-then bought it for $15!!! Enjoy!
1Prepare cake mix according to box directions, pour into a Bundt or tube pan and bake for time specified on box...let cool completely
2Put cooled cake onto dish or platter; slightly soften the peanut butter in the microwave (do 15 sec increments- you don't want it runny but you don't want it to 'pull' the cake either...just a nice smooth spread)...completely frost cake with peanut butter, including the inside middle...let stand while you prepare glaze
3For glaze-combine powdered sugar and cocoa in a medium bowl..mix thoroughly until an even tan color; combine milk and butter in a microwave safe cup/bowl- heat in microwave on High for 1 minute...stir until butter is melted; add vanilla to liquid then pour liquid into sugar/cocoa mixture, stirring with whisk until blended and smooth
4Using a large spoon, spoon the glaze onto the peanut butter frosted cake, going around the top first, then filling in down the sides and around the bottom...glaze will pool a little in the center (but that's a yummy treat for whoever is cutting the cake :) )...make sure the cake is completely coated with the glaze...sprinkle with jimmies or chopped nuts if you want...let stand until glaze sets
5This can be done as a layer cake or a 9x13 sheet but I like the tube/bundt better because you get more of the chocolate/peanut butter(which now tastes like a Reeses cup) surrounding the cake
