  • 4 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups soft butter
  • 2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 4 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Mini Snickers; 7 whole, 10 chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped peanuts
  • Soft Caramel sauce
  • Chocolate Ganache
  • 6 oz caramels, unwrapped
  • 1/3 c heavy cream

  1. Frost bottom layer and bottom of top layer but keep them separate. (Put the bottom layer on the cake plate you’re using and flip top layer upside down on a separate plate and frost ONLY the bottom of it.)
  2. Drizzle some of the carmel & ganache, and sprinkle 1/2 of the peanuts, and 1/2 of the chopped Snickers on the top of the bottom layer, but don’t get any on the sides. Turn top layer right-side-up and place on top of bottom layer so that the filling is between two layers of frosting. Frost cake generously and smooth the top and sides as much as possible. Drizzle more caramel & ganache over the top and off the sides of the frosted cake. Sprinkle with chopped peanuts & chopped Snickers. Pipe 6 tufts of frosting around the edges and one more in the middle. Top each with a whole mini Snickers bar.

Cake is best if you cool completely, wrap in foil, and freeze overnight before frosting. It’s easier to frost while frozen, and turns out extra moist
