I have not baked anything in a while. Mostly because it has been soooo darn hot lately! If I could not throw it on the grill, I refused to make it this week. But, sometimes you just need chocolate, and I had a crazy craving for chocolate cake and peanut butter cheesecake. Mt sweet tooth was going through major withdrawal, so I knew it was time to get something in the oven. I could not make up my mind on what to make so I decided to combine my cravings into a Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Cheesecake Filling! The rich chocolate cake and the creamy peanut butter filling was just what I needed. If you are new here, I have a total chocolate and peanut butter addiction, to the extent that I turn a normal breakfast into a chocolate lovers dream. The best part about this recipe is that the cheesecake filling is no bake, so it may look intimidating, but this recipe is super easy to make! Oh and to give it just a little bit more decadence, I frosted it in peanut butter frosting and covered it in a dark chocolate ganache! YUM!
Triple Chocolate Cinnamon Rolls
I have admitted to my chocolate addiction, and that is the first step in facing an addiction. But, these Triple Chocolate Cinnamon Rolls threw me right back into my addiction and I am perfectly okay with that. I have never understood how cinnamon rolls are classified as a breakfast food. They are super sweet and yummy, don’t get me wrong, but when I think of breakfast I think of something hardy like bacon and eggs. Unlike my oh so sweet Hubby who believes that if you put the word breakfast before something it makes it breakfast. Like breakfast cake and breakfast candy. No joke people…
So to satisfy his ever growing sweet tooth I took to Pinterest (of course, where else would I go?). I came across this recipe from Chef in Training for Cake Batter Cinnamon rolls. They looked amazing, but I knew the first thing Hubby would ask is “where is the chocolate”? So I opted to change it up a bit and do a chocolate version. These could easily be a breakfast or dessert in my opinion. And if there is a way to justify eating chocolate for breakfast I am all for it!
Double Peanut Butter Cake Bars
I am a peanut butter addict. I go through a least a jar a week, I put it on everything from bananas to waffles! I also LOVE baking things that include peanut butter, and these Peanut Butter Cake Bars are a family favorite. The bottom is like a crisp peanut butter cookies, and the center is like a nice fluffy peanut butter cake! Take about a two for one! Add some peanut butter frosting on top, and these will be gone in minutes!
