#Throwback Thursday with Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cake

Thursday, June 26, 2014

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cake is this week's Throwback Thursday Recipe.  It's an easy cake to make as it starts out with a cake mix!  I make a homemade chocolate glaze drizzle icing but you can use a store bought version also.  This makes a great dessert for family, friends, bake sales or church get togethers.  Let me know if you try it!

Combine the cake mix, eggs, peanut butter and milk in a mixing bowl.
Blend until smooth.
Add the chocolate chips.
Pour into a greased cake pan.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.  

For the icing:

Combine the powdered sugar and cocoa powder.
Add the remaining ingredients and mix until smooth.
Using a spoon, drizzle the icing over the cake so it runs down the sides.

Let the cake cool before icing...

Drizzle the icing over the entire cake...
