There is nothing worse than seeing a cake that takes your breath away and then you taste it. It’s thick, dry and you are choking to death. Talk about major buzz kill!!!! Well, push that bad experience aside because I have a treat for you.
Over the weekend I made 2, triple layer chocolate cakes and the frosting was made from peanut chew candy bars. I have never made a frosting out of a candy bar but I was excited to try something different and mix it up a little bit.
- 6 eggs
- 4 cups Flour
- 2 cups Sugar
- 1 cup Brown Sugar
- 2 cups Dark Cocoa Powder
- 1 1/2 cups melted butter
- 2 cups Buttermilk
- 2 cups Coffee
- 2 tsp Salt
- 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 3 tsp Baking Soda
- 3 tsp Baking Powder
- Parchment paper
In a large bowl combine all of your dry ingredients and mix together. In a separate bowl add all of the wet ingredients, whisk and slowly add in your dry ingredients.
Line your 3 pans with parchment paper and leave a little extra paper on all sides of the pan. This will make it easier to remove the cakes from the pan.
Bake on 350 degrees for 35 minutes and let cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan.
- 50 pieces of Peanut Chew
- 4 tbs butter
- 4 cups Confectioners Sugar
- 3/4 cups of heavy whipping cream (add more if needed)
Bring the pan to a nice low heat and melt the butter. Once butter is fully melted add the candy. Remove from heat and pour melted candy into the Confectioner Sugar and add whipping cream.
Frosten the 3 layers (including the top of the 3rd layer) and if you like you can melt 10 pieces of the candy in the microwave and drizzle it on top of the cake.
Please refer to all the Pictures below and the short video on making the frosting. However please use half the amount of butter than on the video. I needed enough for six cakes you only need enough for 3 cakes.
