¬†Peanut Butter Chocolate Ooey Gooey Cake

We don’t have cable at our apartment. In our small town we are limited with only a handful of options for cable and Internet, and none of them are what you would call cheap. My fianc√© and I decided we would be better off getting an Internet only package and using Netflix as our primary source for TV and movies. 

It works pretty well. Tons of my favorite shows, including Frasier, NCIS, Archer, Gilmore Girls, and Love It or List It, are on Netflix, so I’m rarely at a loss for something to watch. 

In fact, the only two shows I really miss are The Big Bang Theory and The Walking Dead. Even that has a simple fix. I watch Big Bang online when I need some of Leonard and Sheldon’s antics. 

For The Walking Dead, my parents graciously invite us over for dinner on Sunday and we watch it together. Believe it or not, it’s one of my mom’s favorite shows. 

For this week’s episode of Fear the Walking Dead, I decided we needed dessert. I haven’t baked in a long time and this ooey gooey peanut butter chocolate cake was just what I needed to get me back into the swing of things. 

You can see the full recipe here. It’s a super simple one and I already had most of the ingredients. A little powdered sugar and some chocolate chips from the store and I was all set! 

First, you get this rich chocolate layer. The recipe calls for crushed butterfingers in addition to the Reece’s cups, but I’m not a big fan so I left them out. 

Next comes the creamy peanut butter layer that I neglected to photograph. I confess, I was too busy licking the bowl! 

Bake for 50 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. 

Now melt some chocolate to top it off. 

Mmm, so good! A perfect compliment to zombies and general end of the world hysteria. 

Once again, I was too busy eating to snap a picture until it was almost all gone. 

I have a few more events coming up that I’ll be baking for, so stay tuned for more sweet things!
