Everyone gives us Reese’s and I don’t know why? We decided to make a Reese’s Chocolate Cake today! It’s absolutely addicting!
When I crave something sweet I crave chocolate and the only thing that could possibly make it better is peanut butter! This chocolate cake is very rich so don’t eat too much alone! Matt loves ice cream so of course we topped ours with ice cream and it kind of cuts through the richness of the cake and it makes the perfect combination! Reese’s have always been my favorite candy bar so it’s only fitting I would marry a Reese! We loved this recipe and highly recommend that you make it yourself to see how you feel about it! Don’t forget the vanilla ice cream and the friends to share it with!
