Theresa Newman


1 box Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix (oil, eggs, water)
8 ounces softened cream cheese
1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 cup miniature Reese's peanut butter cups, unwrapped and cut in halves

Preheat your oven to 350 and grease a 9x13 baking dish with a nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl, mix together the ingredients for your chocolate fudge cake. Pour your fudge cake into your greased baking dish and set aside.

In a separate bowl, mix together your cream cheese, butter, peanut butter, and vanilla until well mixed.

Mix in your powdered sugar 1 cup at a time until you add all 4 cups. Add your peanut butter mixture in spoonfuls to your mix and lightly spread around.

Now, sprinkle your Reese's peanut butter cup halves and chocolate chips on top.
Bake for 45-50 minutes (checking the center after 45 with a toothpick test).
