Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownie Cake

 
 

chocolate peanut butter brownie cake   It’s a girls night out and I am headed to my sister’s house for dinner! My two sisters, our Mom and I are going to spend some time together catching up and hanging out. I dreamt about this dessert I wanted to create, yes I am not ashamed to admit that I dream about food :-), and I thought that it would the perfect dessert for girls night! A decedent, rich, moist six layer chocolate peanut butter brownie cake with different peanut butter and chocolate fillings, chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups, showered with chocolate ganache and drizzled with peanut butter! What a sweet dream! It took me two days to complete the cakes, I prepped everything one day and I assemble it on the second. It was worth the prep! I am just a little obsessed with the peanut butter and chocolate combination!

While all this great baking is happening, let’s make the yummy fillings.
In a large bowl whip together the vanilla pudding mix, 3/4 cup whole milk, and one cup of heavy cream. Fold in 1/4 cup peanut butter. Set aside. The filling should be very thick.
In another large bowl whip together the chocolate pudding, 3/4 cups whole milk, and one cup of heavy cream. Set aside.
In another large bowl whip together 8 ounce cream cheese, 1 cup peanut butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar.
In another large bowl whip together 2 cups of heavy cream and 3 Tablespoons granulated sugar. Whip until it becomes thick whipped cream. Fold into the peanut butter cream cheese mixture.
On the stove in a small pot melt together 1 cup chocolate chips, or candy melts, 1/3 cup heavy cream, and 1/3 cup light corn syrup. Stir until it becomes thick chocolate.
 
Whew!
Let’s assemble this awesome cake:
On a cake plate place one brownie.
Spread half of the chocolate pudding filling on top.
Place a chocolate cake on top.
Spread half the peanut butter cheesecake filling on top. Spread 4 chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups evenly.
Place a vanilla peanut butter cake on top.
Spread the vanilla peanut butter pie filling on top.
Place a brownie cake on top.
Spread the other half of the chocolate pudding filling on top.
Place a chocolate cake on top.
Spread the other half of the peanut butter cheesecake filling on top. Spread 4 chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups evenly.
Place a vanilla peanut butter cake on top.
Pour the chocolate ganache over top the whole cake.
In a bowl melt 1/4 cup peanut butter, place in a ziploc bag, snip the corner and drizzle over chocolate ganache. Top with 2 chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups.
If this cake starts to sway, take a skewer a place in right down the middle of the cake.
Place in fridge until ganache has hardened-about 20 minutes!
Enjoy this decadent sweet treat!
